It began with a "poetree" — an ornately-crafted paper sculpture left in the Scottish Poetry Library in Edinburgh. Next was a paper dragon. Who was leaving these cryptic messages around town?

How Teens Do Research in the Digital World | Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project

How Teens Do Research in the Digital World | Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project | libraries and digital media | Scoop.it
A survey of Advanced Placement and National Writing Project teachers finds that teens’ research habits are changing in the digital age...

Presents results of a recent Pew Internet study that surveyed school teachers about students’ research habits and the impact of technology on their studies.

"Some 77% of advanced placement (AP) and National Writing Project (NWP) teachers surveyed say that the internet and digital search tools have had a “mostly positive” impact on their students’ research work. But 87% say these technologies are creating an “easily distracted generation with short attention spans” and 64% say today’s digital technologies “do more to distract students than to help them academically.”

The study concludes: "the internet has opened up a vast world of information for today’s students, yet students’ digital literacy skills have yet to catch up".

I think teacher librarians could leverage the results of this study to argue the important contribution the school library program and TL can make to a whole school digital literacy initiative.

The League of Extraordinary Librarians: SLJ’s latest tech survey shows that media specialists are leading the way - The Digital Shift

The League of Extraordinary Librarians: SLJ’s latest tech survey shows that media specialists are leading the way - The Digital Shift | libraries and digital media | Scoop.it

Meet the latest tech superheroes: school librarians. According to School Library Journal’s 2012 School Technology Survey, media specialists are leading the charge to bring new media, mobile devices, social apps, and web-based technologies into our nation’s classrooms.

 

So far, the results have been pretty impressive: 87 percent of school librarians report that they’re in charge of their library’s technology, with 60 percent adding that they’ve also introduced it into the classroom. Furthermore, 44 percent now serve on their school’s tech team, and in these budget-troubled times, when many library positions are on the line, that role may mean increased job security. In fact, 55 percent of the elementary, middle, and high school librarians that responded to our survey say that their tech skills have increased their value in administrators’ eyes.
