Why A Wiki?

  1. 1. Why a Wiki?<br />
  2. 2. In order for school libraries to play a key  role in the information age school, I  believe there needs to be a fundamental shift from thinking about the movement and management of information resources through structures and networks, and from information skills and information literacy to a key focus on knowledge construction and human understanding, implemented through a constructivist, inquiry-based framework.” (Todd “Transitions”)<br />Photo Credit: Sean McGrath<br />
  3. 3. Information is the heartbeat of meaningful learning in schools. But it is not the hallmark  of the 21st century school. The hallmark of a school library in the 21st century is not its collections, its systems, its technology, its staffing, its buildings, BUT its actions and evidences that show that it makes a real difference to student learning, that it contributes in tangible and significant ways to the develop of human understanding, meaning making and constructing knowledge. The school library is about empowerment, connectivity, engagement, interactivity, and its outcome is knowledge construction. (Todd “Transitions”)  <br />
