8 Ways to Rescue Public School Libraries From Becoming Obsolete - 34 views

  •  
    There is really no reason why school libraries should fear competing sources of information. With the right adjustments, K-12 libraries can work alongside the rest of the data that students access on a daily basis.

Librarians Lead the Way in EdTech - 23 views

  •  
    "Libraries and librarians are at the forefront and often the hub of the school. They are a community resource, a public face, a service profession, a helping hand, relationship builders, collaborators, and educational technology leaders. Librarians of 2015 are not the same librarians you remember from 1985. They still order books and teach research skills, but it is very rare to hear them shushing students, or hiding meekly behind the stacks. Librarians wear a number of hats and information literacy is closely tied to educational technology."

21st-Century Libraries: The Learning Commons - 39 views

  •

In other words, instead of being an archive, libraries are becoming a learning commons.

So-Called "Digital Natives" Not Media Savvy, New Study Shows - 29 views

  •  
    "In Google we trust." That may very well be the motto of today's young online users, a demographic group often dubbed the "digital natives" due their apparent tech-savvy. Having been born into a world where personal computers were not a revolution, but merely existed alongside air conditioning, microwaves and other appliances, there has been (a perhaps misguided) perception that the young are more digitally in-tune with the ways of the Web than others.
