Jigsaw Groups for Discussion
File sharing tools (Zoho, blist, dropbox, etc.)
This course focuses on the structure and design of school library programs by examining constructivist learning theories, research that that informs instruction, information literacy, curriculum standards, as well as current trends in literacy and technology, outcomes based education and evidence-based practice. Integration of inquiry learning and information literacy across the curriculum is emphasized.
Real time interaction (Elluminate, etc.)
Screen-capture (Camtasia, Jing, etc.)
This course introduces computing concepts and basic information processing/management skills for knowledge workers through practice. Common data/information processing/management tools/skills covered include text editors/wordprocessors/HTML for text and Web pages; database management systems for factual data; and spreadsheet software for numeric data. For the networked information environment, focus is put on the Web technology: how the Internet works, client/server architecture for various Internet services, and practical skills on construction of Websites to organize information resources. Other issues related to information technology, such as data and system security, etc., are also discussed.
Screen capture video demonstration or Snap-shot (Camtasia, Jing, Youtube, etc.)
This course examines the management of school library programs, including instruction, collection development and access, staffing, facilities, and budgeting and advocacy, using a case study approach to strategic planning and needs assessment. The theoretical strand provides background inmanagement theory as it relates to school libraries.
Your friend, Mr. Dewey, has asked for your advice about the changes in his school. He is a media specialist in a suburban high school of 1500 students. Mr. Y, the principal, is a former executive from Apple Computers who understands the benefits in productivity and morale when a behavioral management approach is taken. Teachers no longer punch a time clock. The district has just moved from a central office-controlled management model to site-based management and Mr. Y is ecstatic. He believes strongly in participatory management and is changing the management structure of the school to create a narrow span of control and to break down the vertical hierarchy of administration.

He knows from his experience at Apple that his workers can be more creative in this kind of work environment. There are now three "houses" with 500 students in each house. Headmasters have been chosen from the faculty to run each house. The houses are self-sufficient, with teachers serving as department heads for Science, Math, Social Studies and English in each house. There is a guidance office in each House. The Housemasters run monthly meetings with their staffs in addition to Mr. Y's whole school faculty meeting. The Headmasters meet every week and discuss changes that teachers are supporting, such as increasing time on task for students by lengthening class sessions from 40 to 60 minutes. Teachers feel empowered and self-actualized in this work environment.
Mr. Y visited Northumbria University in England recently where he toured the flexible learning spaces that have been built there. They occupy the space of two classrooms but house just one class. There is a one room that is the size of the average classroom and three areas that are connected to it. This arrangements allows students to meet as a class, or in small groups as they work on projects. The flexible learning spaces have computers and books that relate to the curriculum studied by the class. This growing trend is England and Australia is filtering down to K-12 schools. Mr. Y has shared this innovation with his faculty and there is a growing consensus among them in favor of the idea. They already enjoy well-resourced classrooms that house computers and books for ready reference and use. Under the new plan to convert classrooms to flexible learning spaces two or three classrooms in each house would be grouped for use by a single class to accommodate various teaching methods and group sizes. With declining enrollments this is feasible. These learning spaces would be equipped with networked computers and resources. The school is going wireless and there is talk that computer labs will also be converted to flexible learning centers. In addition, a science teacher has partnered with the Technology Director to start a virtual high school to serve at-risk students who have poor attendance and could learn in a digital environment. They are looking at 2.0 web tools to motivate students through highly interactive learning experiences. The trend in the thinking in Mr. Dewey's school seem to be favoring decentralization and the personalization of services to students.
How would you advise your friend to manage the changes that Mr Y is planning for the school?
Thinking PointsHow can Mr. Dewey manage change using Behavioral Management principles and theory? Please refer to the lecture and use the theory discussed in the lecture to craft strategies for Mr. Dewey.Mr. Y seems to subscribe to the Behavioral Management school of thought. How do you think he will plan and implement this innovation of flexible learning centers in his school?
Evaluation and selection of materials based on literary criteria and the biological, sociocultural, psychological, and developmental characteristics of young adults; guidance in their use. Emphasis on gender-fair and multicultural materials and the attitudes, interests, problems, and opportunities of young adults in contemporary society.
Discussion on Multiculturalism
Look at the two illustration pages in the following slides, examining the illustration pages only. Think about the following questions:
What does this book illustration communicate to viewers?
How is it communicated?
What has the illustrator done to attract your attention?
Compare the cover of The Tequila Worm with Chato's Kitchen. What words would you use to describe the book covers and illustrations? How do these illustrations affect your understanding of these stories?
Word hunter (finds key words and definitions); evaluator (evaluates the source); messenger (summarizes big ideas and main points); quiz kid (raises questions); connector (makes connections between self, texts and the world; note taker (takes specific notes on content); image maker (creates visual scheme of ideas); interpreter (asks, “What does it mean? “ and “Why is it important?”).
