An Open Letter To Principals (Before You Hire A New School Librarian)

An Open Letter To Principals (Before You Hire A New School Librarian) | Scooping the scoops | Scoop.it

I know you're busy, so I won't mince words: Hiring and supporting awesome people to work with the students who go to your school is the most important part of your job.  Period.  It's not school safety.  It's not community outreach.  It's not busses,  instructional services or building maintenance.  It's people.  Because the better people you have, the more empowered and capable they are, the fewer problems you'll have in all of those other areas.  Great people = great outcomes.

8 digital skills we must teach our children

8 digital skills we must teach our children | Scooping the scoops | Scoop.it

The way children use technology is very different from adults. This gap makes it difficult for parents and educators to fully understand the risks and threats that children could face online. As a result, adults may feel unable to advise children on the safe and responsible use of digital technologies. Likewise, this gap gives rise to different perspectives of what is considered acceptable behaviour.
