Do We Need Books in K-12 School Libraries?


Credits: None available.

Cushing Academy Library eliminated its huge book collection over the last year, turning that library into an all digital facility. Other independent schools have chosen different ways to meld cutting edge technology into traditional book collections, including the Learning Commons model. Speakers will discuss how administration was involved in these changes on their campuses, and consider broader questions for the school libraries: how can schools best consider the balance of digital and print resources for the most successful student achievement.

Credits: None available.

Explore how school libraries can support students transliterate practices in an inquiry driven, participatory learning environment that scaffolds students’ abilities to navigate traditional and emerging information landscapes as networked learners who engage in collaboration, content creation, and conversations for learning through multiple mediums. Explore how transliteracy is an umbrella for how people are using multiple literacies — traditional (text, information) and emerging (digital, new media, privacy) — to access, share information, and create new meaning.
