  • Introductions and Context Exercise:

    Introduce yourself and explain your connection to L4L and indicate that before you begin the formal part of your presentation, you want to help create some context through a warm up exercise – you will have determined in advance which exercise to you (see below) so explain how it will work and have fun!


    Select from the options in the L4L Workshop Guide - depending on the time available to you, and the number of participants, this exercise can run from 10 minutes to a half an hour.

    If you use the continuum option, we suggest using at least all of the common belief statements and then you can cherry pick the rest based on your understanding of the audience needs.

  • Learning4Life is the conceptualization of the critical role of school library media specialists and school library media programs in ensuring that students are prepared to achieve and succeed in school and beyond.
    It is intended to introduce the learning standards and guidelines to internal and external audiences alike in order to first build awareness. Awareness will lead to understanding and commitment to align the standards to the curriculum and provide the resources and conditions necessary to ensure that they are fully integrated. The goal is to create a shared vision with stakeholders and constituents and widespread recognition of who we are; our purpose (in 21st-century education); and what students, teachers, administrators, elected officials, parents, and the public can count on school library media programs to deliver.

  • Although the change in the learning environment has been rapid, there is still much that is tried and true in education. Students still need guidance and support from adults who care about them and who want them to succeed and guidance in the use of the ever-expanding volume of resources available to them as they learn to construct knowledge. The school library media center must be open, inviting, flexible and able to host a wide variety of user activities at any given time.

  • (READ THE FROM/TO Statements)
    Today’s students need to develop information skills that will enable them to use technology as an important tool for learning, not an end in itself but a tool in the process of learning, both now and in the future.
  • In addition to looking at “where” learning occurs, AASL’s Standards for the 21st Century Learner provide an opportunity for schools to review and reexamine traditional information literacy skills in order to incorporate new literacies as well as address responsibilities, dispositions in action and self-assessment strategies. In order to implement the standards, it is important to understand the Common Beliefs statements on pages 2 and 3. These are the beliefs upon which the new standards were built and they help to move us from the past to the here and now.
  • Although the change in the learning environment has been rapid, there is still much that is tried and true in education.

  • It also requires a 24/7 virtual presence through provision of an up-to-date dynamic web presence that provides digital resources and incorporates the best of Web 2.0 to provide opportunities for sharing and collaborating.
    Is your web presence easy to find? Can your web site be accessed in less than three mouse clicks from the school home page? Is the content up-to-date? Have you used basic web site analytics to determined how often it is used and by whom? Do you have user-friendly text and graphics that that make someone want to return? These are all part of evaluating and maintaining a virtual “space.”
     
  • Again, the Common Beliefs are the underpinning of the Standards for the 21st-Century Learner which addresses four standards with four strands under each standard.
  • Within each standards, evidence of student learning is expressed through:

    Skills - Key abilities needed for understanding, learning, thinking, and mastering subjects. Ask yourself, Does the student have the right proficiencies to explore a topic or subject further?

    Dispositions in Action- Ongoing beliefs and attitudes that guide thinking and intellectual behavior that can be measured through actions taken. Ask yourself, Is the student disposed to higher-level thinking and actively engaged in critical thinking to gain and share knowledge?

    Responsibilities - Common behaviors used by independent learners in researching, investigating, and problem solving. Ask yourself, Is the student aware that the foundational traits for 21st-century learning require self-accountability that extends beyond skills and dispositions?

    Self-Assessment Strategies - Reflections on one’s own learning to determine that the skills, dispositions, and responsibilities are effective. Can the student recognize personal strengths and weaknesses over time and become a stronger, more independent learner?

  • Additionally, you can consult Standards for the 21st Century Learner in Action. This publication from AASL takes an in-depth look at the strands of the Standards for the 21st-Century Learner and the indicators within those strands. It also answers such critical questions as “How do the strands—the skills, dispositions in action, responsibilities, and self-assessment strategies—relate to one another? “

    Benchmarks are provided along with examples that show how to put the learning standards into action. This is a practical book with examples of how to maximize the application of the learning standards at different grade levels.
  • Most schools have developed grade level expectation or benchmarks related to traditional information literacy and that is the best place to begin implementation. In general, these are aligned with State Standards and Frameworks, which in turn are often aligned with National Professional Association standards, like AASL’s or the many content associations like the National Council of Teachers of English, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, etc.

    If your district already has school library media learning standards, or ICT standards, correlate them with the Standards for the 21st Century Learner. Identify areas for professional development.
