Free PD for eacher Librarianss (an infographic) — @joycevalenza NeverEndingSearch | School Library Media Centers | Scoop.it
There’s a whole lot of learning going on out there, but I’ve learned that it’s not all that easy to find.

For the last few years I’ve tried to keep up with it myself and help my students and colleagues keep up as well. I decided it was time to pull it all together. Here’s a first go at an infographic collecting some of the major professional learning opportunities out there for school librarians.

Please let me know what I missed and please feel free to embed and share with friends.

LAUSD's students need better libraries, not iPads

Like Supt. John Deasy and others in the Los Angeles Unified School District , I am concerned about the educational civil rights of the district's students. While the iPad -for-every-student controversy has gotten much media coverage lately, a long-term problem has gotten very little attention: the lack of equal access to a quality school library. A 19-month investigation by the U.S. Department of Education 's Office for Civil Rights concluded in 2011 that thousands of LAUSD students were being denied equal educational opportunities, which included libraries with sufficient books and staffing.

"Today’s school librarians employ a variety of tools beyond books to educate kids. They use technology to engage students living in a tech-heavy world. They collaborate with teachers to support curriculum. They create “maker” spaces where students can work on arts and crafts projects. They maintain a flexible schedule, so kids can drop in when they wish. And they create a welcoming atmosphere that kids crave."
