  38. 38.
  39. 39. Old assumptions about space<br /> Learning only happens in classrooms<br /> Learning only happens at fixed times<br /> Learning is an individual activity<br /> A classroom has a “front”<br /> What happens in a classroom everyday is the same<br /> Learning demands privacy and removal of distractions<br /> Flexibility can be enhanced by filling a room with as many chairs as will fit<br /> Students will destroy comfy furniture<br />

  61. 61. “mooc” (massive online open courses)</li></li></ul><li>6.<br />The Atlas of NEW<br />Librarianship<br />(David Lankes)<br />“… a new librarianship based not on books and artifacts but on knowledge and learning…”<br />
  62. 62.
  63. 63.
  64. 64.
  65. 65. Knowledge is created through conversations.<br />Knowledge can only be resident in humans.<br />
  66. 66. People who participate in conversations reach agreements.<br />Agreements form the basis of what we know. <br />
  67. 67. Agreements can be encoded into artifacts but artifacts do not contain the agreements (or the knowledge).<br />
  68. 68. Memory function: <br />Librarians preserve artifacts <br />to enhance conversations <br />by providing the memory <br />of past agreements. <br />
  69. 69. Therefore if…<br />The mission of Librarians is to improve society through facilitating knowledge creation in their communities…<br />AND knowledge is created through conversation, THEN we are in the conversation business. <br />
  70. 70. Atlas of New Librarianship<br />Companion Website/ Participatory Site<br />http://www.newlibrarianship.org/wordpress/<br />p. xii: “This book is all about conversations. The Atlas is my contribution to that conversation and it is really an invitation for you to join in.”<br /> - R. David Lankes<br />
  71. 71. 7.<br />Personal Learning<br />Environments<br />hyperlinks<br />
  72. 72. BIG HAIRY AUDACIOUS GOAL<br />As School Librarians we need to place each student at the center of their own information universe!  <br />
  73. 73. PLE<br />What is it?<br />
  74. 74. PLN =<br />Personal<br />Learning<br />Network<br />Online communities<br />Personal cognition <br />Distributed cognition<br />+<br />
  75. 75. As we continue to move from a broadcast model of information to a networked one, we will continue to see a reworking of the information landscape. <br /> -danahboyd<br />http://www.educause.edu/EDUCAUSE+Review/EDUCAUSEReviewMagazineVolume45/StreamsofContentLimitedAttenti/213923<br />
  76. 76. “This world of learning will be customized, connected, amplified, authentic, relevant, and resilient and it is beginning to unfold now.”<br />
  77. 77. Why PLEs?<br />“…real-world problems are now too complex to be solved by a single person. The knowledge and expertise needed to solve them is increasingly distributed across networks.”<br />- Paavola & Hakkarainen, 2005; Nardi, et al, 2000)<br />
  78. 78. “Distributed intelligence means that resources that shape and enable activity are distributed … across people, environments, and situations.”<br /> - Henry Jenkins, 2007 <br />http://www.projectnml.org/files/working/NMLWhitePaper.pdf<br />
  79. 79.
  80. 80. The emergence of new internet environments in the last decade now require that students master the ability to ...capture “flows” of real-time information as they stream through RSS (really simple syndication) technologies and micro-blogs. <br /> <br />
  81. 81. SHIFT<br />Intelligence is an attribute of individuals (as in possessed by) <br />Intelligence is accomplished not possessed<br />
  82. 82. Learn how to conceptualize and use your subject guides as more than a static web page -- we'll explore how subject guides can anchor partnerships for learning, introduce social scholarship, and model processes and skills for networked learners who are creating personal learning environments.<br />Buffy Hamilton<br />The UnQuiet Librarian<br />
  83. 83. 8.<br />Event: Next Chapter <br />http://nextchapter.reimagine-ed.org/<br />
  84. 84. Design thinking... what is that?<br />1: Define the problem<br />Immersion and the intense cross examination of the filters that have been employed in defining a problem. <br />2: Create and consider many options<br />Even the most talented teams and businesses sometimes fall into the trap of solving a problem the same way every time. <br />3: Refine selected directions<br />A handful of promising results need to be embrace and nurtured. <br />3.5 Repeat (optional)<br />Design thinking may require looping steps 2 and 3 until the right answers surface.<br />4: Pick the winner, execute<br /> “Fail early, fail often (‘til you get it right)”<br /> - Stanford D-School<br />
  85. 85. At Next Chapter, using design thinking 4 brave cohorts tinkered with the future of school libraries.<br />Here are some of the ideas they came up with. <br />Every surface a workspace<br />A playground for project-based learning<br />A place to hack secrets <br />Library as portal to a journey: a path of discovery<br />A place to “remember” where I have been<br />Life = Learning = Library<br />Remember the big picture: we are redesigning learning<br />Libranasium (part gym, stage and library) with Libracoaches<br />Learners crave a culture of contribution<br />All furniture and walls flexible<br />Place to take a heroic journey<br />A user-driven space<br />Full of yurts as private spaces<br />Library as a community of conversations<br />http://nextchapter.reimagine-ed.org/<br />
  86. 86. More…<br />With many flash carts to enable flash-mob collaboration<br />With porch swings<br />And kitchen islands<br />Napping allowed (It’s brain-friendly”)<br />Transformed into the place to be<br />Info Exchange hub of learning with members (not users)<br />Libraries as Fields of Dreams (a metaphor for the American dream)<br />Pearls of Possibilities & Enchantment<br />Play as an end product, not a way to work<br />Roles and relationships are not static<br />Attachment is the story of learning<br />Yes, AND<br />As a tinkerers studio<br />Exercise your curiosity, be dangerous<br />Relationships, relationships, relationships<br />Safe place to fail<br />
