The game has changed---totally.
School library practice must adapt to complete
shifts in the information and communication
These shifts are not bandwagons. They represent profound
changes in the way we do business, the way we do libraries,
the way we must educate. Teacher librarians, as information
and communication specialists, must lead change in
their buildings or face irrelevancy.
The game has changed...
and shift is no longer optional.

can I make it "Talk Back?"

Digital Information Fluency (DIF) is the ability to ﬁnd, evaluate
and use digital information effectively, efﬁciently and ethically.

The term "Web 2.0" is commonly associated with web applications that
facilitate interactive information sharing, interoperability, user-centered
design, and collaboration on the World Wide Web. A Web 2.0 site allows its
users to interact with each other as contributors to the website's content, in
contrast to websites where users are limited to the passive viewing of
information that is provided to them. ~ Wikipedia

We are not constrained by all of the testing done in the classroom.
The library needs to be a place where students can reach inside to ﬁnd the joy of learning, to
