School library research summarised: a graduate program - 1 views

  •  
    This revised edition includes five new studies (Colorado 2012, Kansas 2012, New Jersey 2011, New York 2012, and Pennsylvania 2012). However, the Delaware, New Jersey, and New York studies are continuations of research cited in the first edition. Using smaller samplings of surveys or focus groups, these studies drill down into particular aspects of school library programs, such as what quality programs look like, what effective school librarians do and their dispositions.
    They also seek to learn what stakeholders-teachers, school administrators, librarians, students, and parents-value and think about the relationship between school library programs and student academic success.

Advocacy Revisited: Newer Insights based on Research and Evidence | Haycock | World Lib... - 0 views

  •  
    By Ken Haycock - Published in 'World Libraries' Vol 19 2009
    "Although a popular focus for librarians, advocacy is often misunderstood and rarely evaluated. It is not publicity, public relations, messaging, marketing, or lobbying alone. It is a planned, deliberate, and sustained effort to develop understanding and support incrementally over time. Greatest success comes through positive relationships, employing proven strategies for social influence - consistency and commitment, reciprocation, authority, liking, social proof, and scarcity."

10 online tools for better student research | The Edvocate - 0 views

  •  
    "The biggest responsibility of any teacher is to equip students with the tools that they can use in everyday life.
    The content is important, but with information so easily accessible, it is ultimately more helpful to them if they have critical thinking, analytic ability, and research skills. You can best serve your students by engaging them in active debate, fun and absorbing problem-solving activities, and relevant research assignments.
    High-school students are among the hardest to engage, so you have to approach them in a way they understand. Traditional is out, online is in. Giving them the opportunity to use the tools they are most comfortable with can help them in ways that no amount of lecturing can accomplish.
    You can make your students better researchers, and thinkers, with the 10 online tools listed in this post"
