  • When I began to review how we have responded as a profession, it became clear that all major aspects of Libraries and being a Librarian have been affected. There have even been changes that don’t fit into our conventional thinking about libraries.. And we’ll get to that later.
  • SAAS – independent college prep school, laptop school since 1997, the emphasis on arts shows here in the original posters we make. That was a collaboration with Rebekah our photography teacher.And here are a few random and dramatic facts about me

    Spaces: Physical and Virtual

    Transliteracy

    Personal Learning Environments: Become Learner-centered, not library-centered
  • 1.
    Spaces:
    Physical & Virtual
  • Reposition the library as the primary informal learning space on campus
  • “We are just beginning to understand how important physical space is to learning and how radically different true learning-centered campuses will look in the future.”

    Chapter 30 Northwestern University’s InfoCommons
  • Old assumptions about space
    Learning only happens in classrooms
    Learning only happens at fixed times
    Learning is an individual activity
    A classroom has a “front”
    What happens in a classroom everyday is the same
    Learning demands privacy and removal of distractions
    Flexibility can be enhanced by filling a room with as many chairs as will fit
    Students will destroy comfy furniture

    Transliteracy
  • Working Definition:
    Transliteracy is the ability to
    > read, write and interact
    > across a range of platforms, tools and media
    from signing and orality through handwriting, print, TV, radio and film, to digital social networks.

  • Buffy Hamilton

  • In the end, its advantageous to promote skills of access, production and interaction across a variety of formats,
    devices and
    platforms.

    The Atlas of NEW
    Librarianship
    (David Lankes)
    “… a new librarianship based not on books and artifacts but on knowledge and learning…”
  • Knowledge is created through conversations.
    Knowledge can only be resident in humans.
  • People who participate in conversations reach agreements.
    Agreements form the basis of what we know.
  • Agreements can be encoded into artifacts but artifacts do not contain the agreements (or the knowledge).
  • Memory function:
    Librarians preserve artifacts
    to enhance conversations
    by providing the memory
    of past agreements.
  • Therefore if…
    The mission of Librarians is to improve society through facilitating knowledge creation in their communities…
    AND knowledge is created through conversation, THEN we are in the conversation business.
  • Atlas of New Librarianship
    Companion Website/ Participatory Site
    http://www.newlibrarianship.org/wordpress/
    p. xii: “This book is all about conversations. The Atlas is my contribution to that conversation and it is really an invitation for you to join in.”
    - R. David Lankes

    Personal Learning
    Environments

  • BIG HAIRY AUDACIOUS GOAL
    As School Librarians we need to place each student at the center of their own information universe!  
  • PLE
    What is it?
  • PLN =
    Personal
    Learning
    Network
    Online communities
    Personal cognition
    Distributed cognition
    +
  • As we continue to move from a broadcast model of information to a networked one, we will continue to see a reworking of the information landscape.
    -danahboyd
    http://www.educause.edu/EDUCAUSE+Review/EDUCAUSEReviewMagazineVolume45/StreamsofContentLimitedAttenti/213923
  • “This world of learning will be customized, connected, amplified, authentic, relevant, and resilient and it is beginning to unfold now.”
  • Why PLEs?
    “…real-world problems are now too complex to be solved by a single person. The knowledge and expertise needed to solve them is increasingly distributed across networks.”
    - Paavola & Hakkarainen, 2005; Nardi, et al, 2000)
  • “Distributed intelligence means that resources that shape and enable activity are distributed … across people, environments, and situations.”
    - Henry Jenkins, 2007
    http://www.projectnml.org/files/working/NMLWhitePaper.pdf
  • The emergence of new internet environments in the last decade now require that students master the ability to ...capture “flows” of real-time information as they stream through RSS (really simple syndication) technologies and micro-blogs.
     
  • SHIFT
    Intelligence is an attribute of individuals (as in possessed by)
    Intelligence is accomplished not possessed
  • Learn how to conceptualize and use your subject guides as more than a static web page -- we'll explore how subject guides can anchor partnerships for learning, introduce social scholarship, and model processes and skills for networked learners who are creating personal learning environments.

    Event: Next Chapter
    http://nextchapter.reimagine-ed.org/
  • Design thinking... what is that?
    1: Define the problem
    Immersion and the intense cross examination of the filters that have been employed in defining a problem.
    2: Create and consider many options
    Even the most talented teams and businesses sometimes fall into the trap of solving a problem the same way every time.
    3: Refine selected directions
    A handful of promising results need to be embrace and nurtured.
    3.5 Repeat (optional)
    Design thinking may require looping steps 2 and 3 until the right answers surface.
    4: Pick the winner, execute
    “Fail early, fail often (‘til you get it right)”
    - Stanford D-School
  • At Next Chapter, using design thinking 4 brave cohorts tinkered with the future of school libraries.
    Here are some of the ideas they came up with.
    Every surface a workspace
    A playground for project-based learning
    A place to hack secrets
    Library as portal to a journey: a path of discovery
    A place to “remember” where I have been
    Life = Learning = Library
    Remember the big picture: we are redesigning learning
    Libranasium (part gym, stage and library) with Libracoaches
    Learners crave a culture of contribution
    All furniture and walls flexible
    Place to take a heroic journey
    A user-driven space
    Full of yurts as private spaces
    Library as a community of conversations
    http://nextchapter.reimagine-ed.org/
  • More…
    With many flash carts to enable flash-mob collaboration
    With porch swings
    And kitchen islands
    Napping allowed (It’s brain-friendly”)
    Transformed into the place to be
    Info Exchange hub of learning with members (not users)
    Libraries as Fields of Dreams (a metaphor for the American dream)
    Pearls of Possibilities & Enchantment
    Play as an end product, not a way to work
    Roles and relationships are not static
    Attachment is the story of learning
    Yes, AND
    As a tinkerers studio
    Exercise your curiosity, be dangerous
    Relationships, relationships, relationships
    Safe place to fail
