I’ve always had the utmost of respect for teacher-librarians who are pushing the envelope and trying to lead the way within schools. Technically, a good teacher-librarian should have a head start on the rest of us as their training is in information literacy incorporating media of all types and they know how to pull it all together for the benefit of students.
So, it makes sense that the teacher-librarian group should take a leadership position as schools move forward with new information technologies. And now, they’re laying it out on the table for all to see!
From now until March 19, the School of Information Studies at Syracuse University is sponsoring a contest for the “New Librarian”. The task is to create a Pinterest Board to show how you define the future of librarianship!
I suspect that there are many, many teacher-librarians who are labouring away doing the best for their schools, colleagues, and students. This is an opportunity to pull it all together and show it off.
If nothing else, when the contest closes and the voting is over, there should be a wonderful sharing of resources as the top 10 submissions will be posted on their website.
