    1. 1. Applying the Principles of Epigenetics for a (R)evolution in School Librarianship<br />presented by Buffy J. Hamilton || Teacher Librarian Café || April 19, 2010<br />
    2. 2. Darwin’s work teaches that evolutionary genetic changes take place slowly over many years and through natural selection<br />
    3. 3. The science of epigenetics disrupts the notion of slow change and the belief that we have little to no control over our genes<br />
    4. 4. Cellular changes to the epigenome (the cellular material that sits atop the DNA) can impact genetic material and accelerate significant change to the genome<br />
    5. 5. These changes are akin to “flipping a switch” that impact gene expression by turning the genes “on” or “off”<br />
    6. 6. The promise of epigenetics: the potential to mitigate or cure ailments and harness the power of beneficial gene expression<br />
    7. 7. What can we as librarians glean from the study of epigenetics?<br />
    8. 8. We can look for external changes and influences to help our profession not just survive but to flourish in harsh conditions<br />
    9. 9. lack of full funding and budget cuts have “silenced” many of our “genes” <br />
    10. 10. aclimate that values standardized test scores over inquiry has impacted our genes<br />
    11. 11. filtering fears are debilitating to our growth<br />Image used under a CC license from http://www.flickr.com/photos/sziszo/2592916753/sizes/o/<br />
    12. 12. A shift in who counts as experts and the decision making model has met some hostile environments<br />
    13. 13. What “epigenetic” changes and influences can accelerate our ability to adapt to a changing educational landscape?<br />
