Evaluation of programs is important to ensure quality learning. Evaluation of the role of the school library in order to identify future development and strategic planning for teaching and learning from the library is critical for effective library services. This session will introduce a review tool developed for school teams to use and identify a school strategic vision. The tool will be available for participants to use in their schools.

Participants will be able to:
Outline data collection needed to review library services
Identify types of library services ad consider a future vision for your school library
Use data from evidence to analyse patterns and trends.

  8. 8. So what does this mean for school libraries?
  9. 9. The K-12 tool  4 parts  Statistics of current usage  Circulation, student use, class use etc  Staff and student surveys or focus groups  Teacher librarian self reflection – based on the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers  Analysis of data  Trends and patterns to note
  10. 10. A guide for determining next steps
  11. 11. Reflect: what is the place of the library and the TL in your school? Review: What does the data say? Refine: What is the role of the library and TL in future learning?
  12. 12. Reflect Consider:  Teaching staff  Library staff  Library space and its effect on users  How does the school want to use the library?  How do students want to use the space?  Teaching and learning philosophy of the school?
  13. 13. Review  Collect statistics over a period of time:  Circulation  Space usage  Teacher perspectives on using the space, resources etc  Student perspectives on using the space, resources  Analyse the data  Recommendations
  14. 14.  If we were to change the focus or purpose of the library, what do you think would be the best fit for the xxx community – teachers and students?  Small library focused on seniors and their needs  The space to be used as a learning centre with options for a variety of learning activities, including a small library collection. http://www.slideshare.net/KnudSchulz/harvard-march-2014- transformation-future-library  Community space that is focused on technology based learning activities including makerspace. Small library collection would be part of this  Library to remain as it is  An integrated information (library), technology and learning hub for the school where co teaching and collaborative learning occur. See http://www.asla.org.au/site/DefaultSite/filesystem/documents/2013 -ASLA-futures-paper.pdf
  15. 15. What is your library of the future for xxx? Give as many words as you like that you feel best describe the library of the future. But don’t stop at just descriptive words… You may have a link to a site, or an image or anything else that you feel best answers this question.
  16. 16. Review  Collect statistics over a period of time:  Circulation  Space usage  Teacher perspectives on using the space, resources etc  Student perspectives on using the space, resources  Analyse the data  Recommendations
  17. 17. Conclusion “The trend shows a significant decline in use of spaces and resources. This decline will more than likely be fast tracked with the implementation of iPads for all students in 2015 under the current usage patterns and attitudes of staff and students. Staff recognise that something has to change but are not sure as to the best solution. There are conflicting views of what the library should be ● quiet BUT flexible use of space; ● book research BUT access to technology and lack of work that requires books; ● individual and group work BUT use for whole classes as a change of environment. ● Need for improved research skills of students BUT little time in curriculum to teach anything else”
  18. 18. Review  Collect statistics over a period of time:  Circulation  Space usage  Teacher perspectives on using the space, resources etc  Student perspectives on using the space, resources  Analyse the data  Recommendations
  19. 19. Recommendations Space  Only 1 whole class space – xxx room. This means that no class would be permanently booked into the library as a part of the timetable. There should be no need for class bookings to the same degree as the iPad rollout will reduce the need for access to laptops. At least 2 or 3 group spaces with different furniture to allow for a variety of use  Put a glass window or panel in the wall of the xxx2 room - as this room should be used as a seminar room it needs visual from a duty of care perspective.  Significant reduction in the Non Fiction collection so that the collection becomes a “seminal collection” of material that is not available online.  The high blue shelving can be removed if the recommendation 4 is approved.  Create a reading space that assists development of a reading culture in the school and is supported by a relevant and appropriate Fiction collection.  Move the library office and workroom to what is currently known as the “silent room”  Create a help desk that is “manned” by library and ICT staff at appropriate times to support students. This help desk should be highly visible, low level and approachable.  If possible, put a glass wall and doors to section off the xxx room as noise from this space distracts students in the other section of what will be a very open space.  The current library workroom to become a “creative lab”. This space will be multi use. It could allow for Yr 12 to use the kitchen facilities, but primarily it should be a space where groups of students can use video editing capabilities and technology as well as makerspace activities. This could be booked by teachers for groups or used by students themselves for individual projects during non class times. Conceptually this will enable creativity and innovation to develop.
  20. 20. Teacher librarian (TL):  The TL should work with the Head of ICT as an integrator to support teachers use of iPads in the classroom. The initial focus should be on ensuring that all teachers are comfortable with using iPads well in their classrooms. The secondary focus which should become the primary focus in time will be that of digital literacy skills. There is research that confirms that while students know how to use technology, they don’t know how to use it for learning and to organise themselves. The TL should spend most of his/her time in classes.  To enable the above recommendation, the TL should not be on the class timetable.  The school needs to determine the core digital skills for students - either from a school developed framework for digital literacy (that could be led by the TL) or through using the Digital Technologies draft curriculum http://www.australiancurriculum.edu.au/technologies/digital- technologies/Curriculum/F-10?layout=1 This would form the basis for the digital literacy program to be embedded within teaching and learning.  The TL and Head of English should work together to develop an appropriate support program that will develop a reading
  21. 21. What are the possible outcomes of this process?  Examination of all data sets as a whole to see patterns and trends  Active consideration of the TL as against the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers at the Highly Accomplished level.  Active discussion with all staff about the library  Improvement in library space and usage  Reflection on the primary role of a TL – teaching and learning support  Collaboration between school leadership and the TL  Start an action research or evidence based way of thinking and learning
  22. 22. What are the concerns?  Diminishing book stocks  The idea of a library other than a resource / quiet space.  Change  in thinking about the role of the TL  Library staff and their perspective of their positions  Teaching staff and their perspective of what a library is
