“To succeed in our rapid-paced, global society, learners must develop high level thinking skills, attitudes and responsibilities.”

American Association of School Librarians. Empowering Learners: Guidelines for School Library Media Programs. Chicago, 2009. Print.


“…information literacy has become universal currency—the single common denominator required for success at any stage of life…”

School Libraries Work! New York: Scholastic Press, 2008. (3rd Edition). Print.


“Our children, now more than ever, must be equipped to access, use, and evaluate information competently in both print and electronic formats.”

THEIRFUTURECOMPELS US.


“The future belongs to those who can adapt quickly to the ever-changing landscape that has moved from a need for industrial workers to information and knowledge workers to conceptual workers….”

Susan Ballard. AASL Standards and Guidelines Implementation Task Force. Learning for Life. 2009.


“… Our students live and compete in the global marketplace where a new and emerging skill set is required if they are to thrive.”

While we cannot predict exactly what new skills will be required for young adults to thrive in this environment, of this we are sure:


We must produce graduates who can…


  • Identify, analyze, evaluate, and communicate information


  • Draw conclusions, make informed decisions, apply knowledge to new situations, and create new knowledge


  • Share knowledge and participate ethically and productively as members of their communities (e.g., their class, school, community, and future workplace)
