For the past six years, in addition to part-time archives consulting, I have worked as a full-time high school Library Media Specialist . In this position, I have learned much about what people believe and how they use information. During this time, I have also earned a post-grad degree in Education. Thus, it is time to restart the ArchivesInfo blog through a new lens.
- What responsibilities do archivists and librarians have to the public?
- How can our skills help mold the 21st century for the better?
- What is information literacy?
- How can, and why should, schools make information literacy a primary component of teaching?
- How can/should education change in the United States to ensure students can evaluate information and think critically for themselves?
- How can educators collaborate with professionals outside of schools to improve school outcomes?
|Studying to make education and awareness of information stronger|
I will share with you some of my half-decade's worth of writing and publications in this area. I will also share my experiences teaching information literacy and collaborating with professionals in my community. Finally, I hope we can use this space to brainstorm ideas to make our skills as information professionals, educators, and cultural heritage experts stronger.
It's nice to be blogging again...
