Connecting the Classroom and the Library: How One School Uses Web-Based Library Projects to Build Information-Literacy Skills

Connecting the Classroom and the Library: How One School Uses Web-Based Library Projects to Build Information-Literacy Skills | Library Science | Scoop.it

The first step we took in 1999 was to stop teaching isolated library skills classes. We began reinforcing information-literacy skills through class projects. At that time, we employed traditional strategies, including paper pathfinders and guided lab sessions.

Good post on how to use content to communicate the impact of donors on your nonprofit. It is so important to show how their actions contribute to solutions.

Students Don't Want to Lose Their School Libraries

Some letters that students wrote telling BESE what they thought about the revisions to Bulletin 741 that would allow school administrators to eliminate school libraries. The students were given a writing prompt to write a persuasive letter explaining why they want to keep their school libraries opened with a certified librarian at the helm.

Author's statement - "Over the past couple of years, I have had the awesome opportunity as a principal and teacher to be part of a school that adopted iPads on a 1:1 device to student ratio.  I went into the program unsure if iPads would be as effective of a classroom device as traditional laptops, but have become convinced that the iPad offers more for classrooms than traditional desktop or laptop computers."

Having 1:1 device to student ratio would be ideal for any preschool or grade school, just how financially realistic? My daughter Julia has more apps on the Ipad than I do, a lot of which assisted her in early reading and math skills at two years old.

Library Design for the 21st Century Learner: Slideshare

Carolyn Foote, Westlake High School Library & library’s architect presented a case study at the CEFPI (Council of Educational Facility Planners International) Southern Conference in Austin.  Carolyn said it was fascinating presenting to such a different audience (mostly architects and facility directors) who are deeply trying to grapple with issues facing education.  She attended other sessions as well and listened as they struggled to make sense of the same issues we as educators debate–standardized test scores, the impact of technology, the value of a library, etc.

A new report released by the National Center for Literacy Education (NCLE) reveals that school librarians are highly involved leaders playing a critical role in their schools through consistent and sustained collaboration with other educators. Additionally, school librarians not only participate in but deliver professional development to peers, educators and staff in their schools.

New Report Highlights School Libraries' Promotion of Digital Literacy

New Report Highlights School Libraries' Promotion of Digital Literacy | Library Science | Scoop.it

“School libraries always have been interdisciplinary spaces deeply connected to the curriculum, instrumental in developing students' research and information literacy skills, and committed to creating an environment of free reading that supports lifelong learning and curiosity. These traditional roles and strengths are increasingly critical as society faces a deluge of digital information, and the lines between content user and content creator are blurred and even actively deconstructed.”
