Via an e-mail from my cohort colleague Joyce: Hi All, Our own Rowena is featured in a New York Teacher article relating the importance of school library media specialists to student achievement. Way to go, Rowena! Yeah! Well done, Rowena! http://www.uft.org/news/teacher/feature/not_just_a_book_checker_outer/ School libraries work! But they work only when the enthusiasm, energy and professional skills of the school librarian — known today as the library media specialist — make a school library come to life.
Jenny blogs her notes from our morning session Friday at the Ontario Library Association conference: “Technology and Education: Are Library Schools Doing Enough.” I love Jenny’s super-duper note taking prowess! The group laughed when I invoked “LS2.” Also, I really enjoyed Jenny and Mary Cavanaugh’s presentations and the discussion that followed. Download my presentation here. Visit Dr. Steven MacCall’s syllabus for his “mashed-up” medical librarianship and Library 2.0 class here. Check out this idea for a class too!
