Sydney Region Teacher Librarian Presentation

  1. 1. When everyone has a library in their pocket or in their bag, what is the new role of the Teacher Librarian in the 21st Century?<br />“Change doesn’t care if you like it or not!”<br />(Anders Sorman-Nilsson, 2011)<br />
  2. 2. Views from the revolution<br />Generally learners:<br />are not good curators<br />are not good resource managers<br />are not good searchers<br />do not understand metadata<br />do not understand the cloud or the semantic web<br />are not able to assess source credibility<br />are not able to assess veracity<br />think a LMS will save them, up until it doesn’t<br />confuse digital citizenship with cybersafety<br />

  9. 9. I encourage students to use a range of technology in my Library?<br />Students would like to use technology in their learning?<br />I would like my own children to utilise technology in their education?<br />I own a mobile phone with internet/email access?<br />If there is a difference between #1 and #2, then there is tension in the classroom - the students want to use technology whereas the teacher doesn't.<br />If #1 is more than #3 then we have a moral issue - teachers want their own children to utilise technology in their classrooms but do not want to undertake such practices in their own classroom with other people's children that they as teachers have responsibility for regarding their education.<br />Quick survey<br />
