    • By design vs by accident “I was in a school that had not developed silos because it was a new school. I have worked in a very traditional school ... where to change something is like turning the Titanic. But here I was in this magic place where there were no established traditions, no established culture. Watching something happen with IT and library, and then reading an article that confirmed what I was observing and gave me the ability to articulate that in a very professional way to my principal. Wow!” Hay, L. (2014). Anatomy of an iCentre: In theory & practice. [Keynote address].

    • “She could see the positives that were coming out of the blending of staff...

    • ¡  Digital normalisation is “when the digital technology that is already used naturally 24/7/365 outside the school walls is also used in all facets of the school’s operations” (Lee, 2013) ¡  The Taxonomy identifies 24 areas within the schools where there is clear evidence of ongoing evolution, covering the likes of the school’s educational vision, the operational mindset, the leadership of the principal, the empowerment of staff and students, pedagogy, home– school collaboration, technology support and school resourcing.

    • iCentre as a sign of digital normalisation “You’ll have noted that as schools move along the evolutionary continuum they become ever more integrated and the silo functions disappear. Tellingly, a number of the pathfinder schools interviewed had adopted the iCentre approach advocated by Hay (2012), and in all those situations that iCentre was playing both a lead and integral role in the school’s evolution. That model clearly fitted those schools’ situation.” (Lee, 2013) Hay, L. (2014). Anatomy of an iCentre: In theory & practice. [Keynote address]. International Schools Librarian's Knowledge Sharing Workshop, Jerudong International School, Brunei Darussalam, 21-22 February. 38
    • iCentre as a sign of digital normalisation “What one can safely say is that the way forward in ever more integrated school ecologies, that are virtually daily undergoing some kind of transformation, is to ensure the ‘libraries’ evolution is integral to the school’s holistic development.” Lee, M. (2013). Digital normalisation, school evolution and BYOT: Positioning the school library. Access, 27(4).
