Technology Support for School Libraries

Our school libraries require the means to support our 21st century learners. We will support the use of technology in the library and in particular, the Web 2.0 tools which best foster learning in the library media centre environment. Online workshops are planned which will encourage the use of these tools to support literacy instruction and to enhance student learning. In addition, we plan on providing support for library staff to move learners from being "web-savvy to being web-wise critical thinkers." Good research includes considering a variety of sources in a variety of formats, selecting sources which meet the objectives of the assignment, recognizing bias and point of view, using sources in an ethical manner, and being able to verify information.
