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:
Information sherpa (I interpret this as a guide)
Learning concierge (gatekeeper, chief assistant)
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.
