The Unquiet Library 2009-2010

Buffy Hamilton, a school librarian in Georgia, has posted a mindmap of her library for the next year. Many of the technologies we talked about in class, plus quite a few more appear on her map. She sees the following roles for the library media specialist:
  • Change agent
  • Information sherpa (I interpret this as a guide)
  • Learning architect
  • Learning concierge (gatekeeper, chief assistant)
  • Innovator
  • Inspiration agent
  • Ambassador of information fluency
If we want to introduce valid uses of these technologies in teaching and learning, we need to take on all these roles.
