Information literacy in competency-based education (academic context)

<iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="270" src="" width="480"></iframe>
Especially in competency based education then, we have begun to articulate the value of information literacy for students. Building information literacy into the assessment rubrics for Flex shows the value of information in the curriculum and, therefore, the direct value of information to the student.
As we reflect on the one-year anniversary of the Flex option, we have new goals for further integrating information literacy into the fabric of the program and a continuing dialogue with faculty on the role information literacy is playing in student success. In order to continue moving forward with our embedded model,
we have added an instructional design librarian to our team to work with our subject specialists as we develop additional online, self-paced learning tools.

New tutorials, such as our evidence-based practice tutorial are designed with self-directed learning in mind. They emphasize a path from basic understanding of the concepts and skills to a more specialized strategies and applications.

Finland schools: Subjects scrapped and replaced with 'topics' as country reforms its education system - Europe - World - The Independent

Subject-specific lessons – an hour of history in the morning, an hour of geography in the afternoon – are already being phased out for 16-year-olds in the city’s upper schools. They are being replaced by what the Finns call “phenomenon” teaching – or teaching by topic. For instance, a teenager studying a vocational course might take “cafeteria services” lessons, which would include elements of maths, languages (to help serve foreign customers), writing skills and communication skills.
More academic pupils would be taught cross-subject topics such as the European Union - which would merge elements of economics, history (of the countries involved), languages and geography.
There are other changes too, not least to the traditional format that sees rows of pupils sitting passively in front of their teacher, listening to lessons or waiting to be questioned. Instead there will be a more collaborative approach, with pupils working in smaller groups to solve problems while improving their communication skills.

Leitura, bibliotecas, escolas

Room to read é um projeto desenvolvido em 6 países africanos e asiáticos em escolas e bibliotecas escolares, envolvendo bibliotecários, professores, gestores de escolas, famílias e comunidades. Publicou agora os resultados da avaliação externa conduzida com o apoio da Fundação Gates.

As principais perguntas para que se procuraram respostas com esta avaliação foram
  • Does having a library help make a child more likely to read for pleasure at school? 
  • And what about at home? 
  • Does having a library impact a child’s attitude towards reading? 
Vale a pena ler, são poucas páginas, e destacar algumas conclusões, tais como esta, que nos lembram que a transformação é muito mais eficaz feita a partir de dentro, e que trabalhar pela leitura das crianças passa por trabalhar com elas mas também, e sempre, com os adultos que as acompanham diariamente:
"A closer look revealed that training staff within the schools to manage the library instead of training external library managers proved to be far more impactful. "

Bibliotecas escolares em Espanha

Estudio de casos: buenas prácticas en la integración
de la biblioteca en los centros educativos / Inés Miret, Mónica Baró, Teresa Mañá, Inmaculada Vellosillo e Ignacio Montero 
Um extrato:
Colaboración con la biblioteca pública  
La existencia de bibliotecas públicas de calidad en el entorno. - La existencia de un programa de actuación entre la biblioteca escolar y la biblioteca pública. - La implicación de la Administración local en el desarrollo de las bibliotecas escolares. - La buena relación personal entre los responsables de ambas bibliotecas. - La utilización de sistemas de organización normalizados idénticos. - La difusión de la información de la biblioteca pública al conjunto de la comunidad educativa. 
La biblioteca escolar y la pública definen mejor sus roles. -Las bibliotecas escolares amplían sus recursos. -El responsable de biblioteca y el conjunto del claustro reciben asesoramiento técnico y formación. -Profesores, alumnos y familias se acostumbran a usar la biblioteca pública. - Los alumnos mejoran sus hábitos de lectura. 
La precaria implantación de la biblioteca pública en el entorno de referencia. - El desconocimiento por parte de la biblioteca escolar de las posibilidades que se derivan de esta colaboración. - La tendencia al trabajo aislado por parte de las bibliotecas escolares.

De 2010, mas ainda atual!

Bibliotecas escolares - desafios para responder, mas nunca sozinho(a)

In the school library sector, it has been a particularly tough proposition to communicate what
school librarians do, especially when they collaborate with the principal and other teachers.
Despite a
significant body of research that demonstrates the major impact of good school library programs – that
means facilities, information resources, and most of all, the teacher-librarian doing this collaborative
work –
on standardized test scores, the facts unfortunately do not carry the day.
The unique role and
strength of the school library remains poorly understood, and school libraries are struggling in many
We have to communicate this information much more strategically – for one thing,
ensuring that relationships of credibility and trust are in place with principals and other decision-makers.
It makes no sense for school librarians to be the sole carriers of this message, and they have tended to
be. Parents, other teachers – other influencers, in fact - have to be carrying the message.
This matters
to the entire library sector, and to society. When we look at the difficulties that first-year university
students have in doing research for their papers, we see only one of the impacts of poor information
literacy skills.
So these perceptions really matter to us, and, though some of them may seem discouraging, these
studies, combined with our own local conversations and studies, tell us where our communities and our
decision-makers are now. In our next video, we’ll look transformative services, and examine some clues
about how we communicate about all this.

Nota: Esta é uma tradução de um livro de banda desenhada que aborda a situação dos realizadores de documentários perante a lei dos Estados Unidos. A lei dos Estados Unidos difere substancialmente das de outras jurisdições. Este livro não deve ser usado como um guia acerca dos preceitos legais que regem os direitos de autor e a realização de filmes fora dos Estados Unidos. No entanto, muitos dos problemas em geral e dos conceitos legais existem um pouco por todo o mundo, e a lei dos Estados Unidos tem, para o melhor e para o pior, influenciado de forma marcada o mercado cultural global. Portanto, esperamos que esta tradução seja útil para informar o público e promover o debate acerca dos direitos de autor e a criatividade.
