Joyce Valenza har gjort ett manifest för 21st Century School Librarians Och Jude O´Conell gör en analys av manifestet på hennes utmärkta blogg. Jag tycker att manifestet är mycket intressant och ska försöka fördjupa mig i det så småningom.
Såhär skriver Jude O`Conell om manifestet:
”In her roundup of indicators of what a 21st century librarian is involved in, she covers:
- the information landscape
- communication, publishing and storytelling
- collection development
- facilities and physical space
- access, equity, advocacy
- audience and collaboration
- copyright, copyleft, and information ethics
- new technology tools
- professional development and professionalism
- teaching and learning, and reference
- into the future (acknowledging the best of the past)
This article is a must-read – and a wonderful ready-made tool for anyone planning directions within their school. Use this article as a springboard for developing an innovative vision and creative response to the learning needs of our students.
If that was not enough, an amazing presentation has also hit the intrawebs – from Lyn Hay at the School of Information Studies at Charles Sturt University. In her presenation you will find a huge amount of information and ideas to stimulate your thinking.
My favourite is the iCentre!
Lyn explains the core business of the iCentre:
- inquiry learning, immersive learning
- information fluency > transliteracy
- explicit instruction
- pedagogical fusion – integrating and aligning information, technology, people, instruction
- customised ‘i’ support for students, teachers, school administrators and parents
- learning innovation
- information leadership
- development of students as independent, informed digital citizens”
