Do You Need Your School Librarian?

I’ve been the primary state contact at my worksite (NH Dept of Ed) for school librarians for several years now. It’s just one of the hats I wear. While I do not have an LMS credential, I’ve sure learned a whole lot about what it takes to be a Library Media Specialist. And these folks are really key players (or should be) in schools that want to be successful 21st century learning places. Sure, there are some librarians who are having a harder time adopting new strategies and new ideas, just like other teachers. Well, I just read Joyce Valenza’s post about this topic and thought it so perfect that it needed to be referenced. She begins by discussing their state’s push toward 1:1 laptop initiatives… then explains what this has to do with the school librarians. A lot! Read Joyce’s post….
