Article by Cathi Fuhrman, Ed.D., library department supervisor for the Hempfield School District, originally presented at a hearing before the state House Education Committee.
In the article she emphazises the important role of certified school librarians on students'futures, but also that this role is changing continuously.
This means school librarians need to evolve and keep up with the changes in education and the demands of society.

The Librarian on the Teaching Team | Technology and Learning

The Librarian on the Teaching Team | Technology and Learning | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it

An essential partnership.


Teaching is changing. What was once a solo pursuit has increasingly become a team sport. I’m not talking about co-faculty taught courses. Rather, the team that I’m thinking about includes a mix of faculty and non-faculty educators. I’m here to make the case that a librarian is a key member of a course development and teaching team. First - before we talk about librarians - let’s talk about teaching teams. My experience with building a team of faculty and non-faculty educators to design and run courses comes out of online learning.

School Libraries Work! | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it

School Libraries Work! seeks to empower librarians, classroom teachers, school and district leaders, policy makers, parents and communities by arming them with the most powerful research-based frameworks, recommendations, and support for school library programs.

The 2016 compendium updates and builds upon the 2008 edition, reinforcing the most relevant themes from that report while highlighting recent research at both the national and state levels. All told, the research included in this compendium continues to show that school libraries and school librarians are a powerful force in the lives of America's children.
