This You Tube video, written and produced by B. Nesbitt, was shared at a CASL Board Meeting recently by CASL President, Su Eckhardt. What does this have to do with school librarians, you ask? Here is my humble opinion. I think that school librarians are perfectly positioned to begin to make the changes needed to bring schools more in line with this kind of vision – to better meet the needs of students just like those depicted in this short film. Through leadership in professional development in our schools, and through collaboration to create learning experiences that engage students in real-world tasks and problem solving, using the incredible tools that exist on the Web today, we can start chipping away at the 20th century, designed-for-factory-automation model of teaching and learning. What do you think?
