University/School Library Collaborations To Integrate Information Technology into Resource-Based Learning Activities.
Doiron, Ray
If the goal of teacher-librarians is to work with teachers to develop information literacy, then how do we model this collaboration for pre-service teachers during their teacher education program? This question was explored in a research study involving university researchers from the University of Prince Edward Island (Canada), teachers, and teacher-librarians in six elementary schools across Prince Edward Island. Learning projects arose from collaborations among the pre-service teachers, classroom teachers, and teacher-librarians as they developed information technology (IT) projects that were integrated into the pre-service practicum. Data were collected on the learning strategies children used and on the collaborative relationship established between the pre-service teachers and the teacher-librarian. This study tracked how pre-service teachers reacted to working with teacher-librarians. Results indicated these projects created authentic environments where pre-service teachers learned the role of the teacher-librarian and how the curriculum development process associated with resource-based learning develops through school library programs.
