  • Changing everyday!
  • One of the problems in doing a presentation about “today’s school library” is that this paradigm is the one most people have in their minds! Look familiar???
  • And this isn’t much better! Just a name change…nothing more
  • We are in the 21 st century and the role of the school library is all about 21 st century skills. Notice the importance of information, media and technology skills in this framework from the Partnership for 21st century skills. In 2009, Ohio became the 14 th state in the Partnership for 21 st Century Skills.
  • In the 21 st century, or digital age, here is a model of a dynamic school library and one to which I aspire . The role of the library is to provide all of the items on the white arrows in the center to create a “formational learning experience”. The library is NOT just about the information but how to use the information effectively and efficiently to create new knowledge. Research is not about gathering facts from different sources and then rearranging them. Researchers need to formulate good questions that cause one to ponder, analyze, synthesize and create solutions.
  • We call our students today the digital natives (we, are immigrants), the wired generation. BUT an ETS study found
  • Eisenberg, “Project Information Literacy” 2010.
  • What do we know about our future world and the importance of information? Department of Labor statistic…
  • A 2010 Project Information Literacy study of early adults on college campuses examined the challenges faced in conducting research in the digital age. Biggest challenge? 84% of students surveyed had the most difficult time at the outset of the research assignment, formulating their research question!
  • One of the big problems we face today is INFORMATION OVERLOAD!
  • This come from an article by librarian William Badke at Trinity Western College who also written the book Research Strategies: Finding Your Way Through the Information Fog, third edition (iUniverse.com, 2008).

    • 6. Mission: School Library
      • … ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information.
    • 7. Digital Natives – Wired Generation
      • In 2007 the Educational Testing Service (ETS) provided these results from 2006 Study:
      • Students adept at using computer for entertainment BUT
        • Ability to access, manage and evaluate information is weak
        • Only 50% can judge objectivity of a website
        • Only 40% knew how to use multiple terms to narrow search
        • Study included: 1,016 high-school students, 753 community collegestudents, and 4,585 four-year college and university students.

    • 11. Project Information Literacy
      • 21 st century workplace:
      • “ In today's information-driven workplace, people spend much of their time formulating questions, finding relevant information and drawing conclusions , often working in virtual teams scattered across the globe .”
      • From Eisenberg, Michael B. and Alison J. Head. “How College Students Evaluate and Use Information in the Digital Age.” Project Information Literacy. University of Washington Information School, November 1, 2010. Web. 11 November 2010.

    • 13. Information Overload: Student perspective …” we’ve kind of been tossed into this and we’ve just learned through experience we have to go on a Web site and just raid it for information. So I would say that despite all that’s out there, it certainly is harder to find the right source and evaluate whether it’s good, or not, because there’s so much – you only have a little bit of time to spend on each source you find. -Engineering student in a follow-up interview Project Information Literacy From Eisenberg, Michael B. and Alison J. Head. “How College Students Evaluate and Use Information in the Digital Age.” Project Information Literacy. University of Washington Information School, November 1, 2010. Web. 11 November 2010.
    • 14. Information Overload?
      • Information overload is real and, by ignoring it, our students are limiting themselves to finding the easiest rather than finding the best. A highly information-literate person has no fear of diving into the information fog and will find the best rather than the most convenient . If education is starting to take us there, let's join the movement and put information literacy into the very foundation of all learning.

    • 15. Future?
      • Learning by discovery will replace learning by absorption.
      • The key to being able to accomplish this is information literacy .
