Do we need library lessons? - SCIS

Do we need library lessons? - SCIS | School Libraries and more | Scoop.it

A school library is (or should be) a whole-school facility, enabling the learning needs of all students, supporting staff to deliver the curriculum, and providing resources for reading and information within a unique space. That’s the theory. The reality, however, is likely to be library staff constantly juggling between the diverse needs of various groups, library lessons full of hands-on activities, busy research lessons using a multitude of resources, quiet periods of study, and times of silent personal reading. All this usually in one room during one day! It is said that you can’t be all things to all people and yet that is exactly what a school librarian tries to do.

Most of us are fresh on the heels of a Spring Break and seeing the rest of the year as that downhill slide towards summer. But before you relax, this is an article worth reading. Heck, I think it's worth printing out and using it as a checklist - a bucket list for quality teaching, if you will. Okay...number 17 is not high on my priority list right now but it might be one day. These are completely appropriate for the teacher-librarian, too. If we are to remain relevant to our schools we must be willing to grow and improve and be challenged so that we can be our best selves every day. I'm really thinking about #44 and would love to hear some feedback from anyone who's been able to accomplish that one. Share this with your teachers!

Interesting research results cited here.  "The report went on to investigate commonalities such as the link between highly trained library staff and student success, digital adoption in the schools and book checkouts, and more. Interestingly, mobile device use and after-school access to the libraries’ digital materials played a key role in this year’s findings."

The Indispensable Library and Librarian | Tech Tidbits

Don't ever doubt it—librarians are in a service industry. By focusing on our unique patron needs and demographics, libraries will continue to be relevant in their schools and communities.

 

Our best librarians are constantly adapting and learning. The future is rich and full of possibility for librarians who are willing to continually assess and respond to their schools’ needs.

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice | School Libraries and more | Scoop.it

Ibrar Bhatt writes: "Digital curation therefore is not just about finding relevant material, although that is a significant part of it, but is also about creating a specific and unique experience by utilising the resulting materials which then become contextualised within a new space. A curator, therefore, whether she is a journalist-by-proxy such as Popova or a student completing an assignment in a classroom, not only collects and interprets, but also creates a new experience with it. In this respect, curation is a process of problem solving, re-assembling,re-creating, and stewardship of other people’s writing."

Short and sweet - this article talks about the power of listening while reading with research to back up the increase in literacy when Same Language Subtitles were used during television viewing. I've seen it for myself when I had ELL students listen to audio books that had accompanying visuals. They not only became better readers (and WANTED to read) but their language skills improved, too.

'School libraries play a huge part in pupils' education'

'School libraries play a huge part in pupils' education' | School Libraries and more | Scoop.it

In a society where one in three homes has no books owned by the children in them, it is essential that youngsters can find them elsewhere.

 

Recent research emphasises this importance. A study by the Institute of Education (2013) found reading for pleasure ‘to be more important for children's cognitive development between ages 10 and 16 than their parents' level of education.’
