Preparing Teachers and Librarians to Teach 21st Century Skills: Views of LIS and Education Faculty DON LATHAM- ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR MELLISSA GROSS- PROFESSOR SHELBIE WITTE- ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF LIBRARY AND INFORMATION STUDIES AN ARTICLE REVIEW: STEPHEN SANDERS
  2. 2. Citation Latham, D., Gross, M., & Witte, S. (2013). Preparing teachers and librarians to collaborate to teach 21st century skills: Views of LIS and education faculty. School Library Research, 16. 1-22. Retrieved from: http://www.ala.org/aasl/sites/ala.org.aasl/files/content /aaslpubsandjournals/slr/vol16/SLR_PreparingTeacher sLibrarianstoCollaborate_V16.pdf
  3. 3. Goals of the Study  In LIS literature, a school librarian’s major contribution to an academic institution is being able to collaborate with teachers to help them and the institution achieve their educational goals.  Collaboration between the two groups, however, is usually the exception rather than the rule  Latham et al. hope to find out why that is the case in their study, using interviews with LIS and education faculty of a research university in the U.S. to find the answers
  4. 4. The Interview Process  Interviewing six faculty from both the LIS and education departments, Latham et al. sought to find out how both sets of faculty viewed:   How 21st century skills are being taught to pre-service students at their institution. (Are they integrated into the curriculum?) And: Do they teach/promote librarian-teacher collaboration techniques to their students?  The interview also took into account the participants experiences with librarian-teacher collaboration, where such collaboration is taught, and where it could be taught
  5. 5. Results of the Interviews  Both LIS and education faculty felt that their fields address 21st century skills  Both sets of faculty believe that collaboration strategies should be taught at pre-service institutions  Both sets of faculty felt that librarian-teacher collaboration in schools is a worthy goal, and is possible, but is difficult to achieve in practice  Suggestions were made on how to begin teaching librarian- teacher collaboration techniques in LIS and education classrooms, but no real solutions were reached
  6. 6. Conclusions  The article is well written, by authors who are knowledgeable in the LIS field  Methodology is sound and well explained  The study is limited, given the small sample size of participants in the interview. However, the study does provide a good basis for further research on this topic.  Until then, any librarian-teacher collaboration will have to be preempted by LIS and education professionals in the field, at all levels of education.
