  • As a teacher-librarian I love (of course) slide 8, which has a solid role for me and my colleagues. I am throughly convinced that in order to take up this mantle we need to do the following:

    1. Teach “ digital literacy and digital citizenship to teachers and
    students ( idea credit -John Goldsmith)
    2. Build on and offline connections with staff and students every single day.
    3. Anticipate and satisfy needs that prove teacher-librarian programs have NOT been made
    redundant by the Internet
    4. Be a digital literacy leaders by keeping up with all things digital
    that are relevant to the educational community in which we work.
    5. Let go of territorial and proprietary attitudes to free up school library program to connect with others.
    6. Take advantage of online computers to save time and personalize for
    people: cut down on turnaround time for requests; reduce redundant
    tasks, adapt and reduce infoglut
    7. Create a vibrant online presence, not a link storage site
