Learning to Learn

Just a gem of a post by David Warlick, that concludes with this:

“If these suppositions are correct, then education must change dramatically in order to support students who must learn to learn, not learn to be taught.”

He also had some incredible things to say in a post called “No More Staff Development!” Check out his bullet points and change them to “libraries and librarian-speak” and what he’s describing is a plan for becoming Librarian 2.0!

Have the skills to research, evaluate, collaborate, remix, and implement new tools and techniques (contemporary literacy)

Are part of an ongoing professional conversation where the expressed purpose is to provoke change (adapt)

Leave the school (library!) from time to time to have their heads turned by new experiences
