The School Library and E-Learning Platforms
Morscheck, Monica
International Association of School Librarianship, Paper presented at the School Library Association of Queensland and the International Association of School Librarianship Conference incorporating the International Forum on Research in School Librarianship (Brisbane, QLD, Australia, Sep 27-Oct 1, 2010)
The teacher-librarian should be the most effective weapon for collaborative teaching and learning within a school. Teacher-librarians do struggle to find time to effectively plan for the cooperative teaching and learning activities. Often school libraries run their own website as they struggle to offer a digital 24/7 library service for its users. The school library website makes it easier for the teacher-librarian to manage the information delivery but isolates the content. The teacher-librarian managed website is often not an effective tool for cooperative planning and teaching. This paper will look at how the teacher-librarian can use e-learning platforms to deliver a digital 4/7 library service, and in addition, offer a great collaborative space for effective cooperative planning and teaching. This paper will focus on examples of practice in two schools. The first school is a New South Wales government high school and uses Moodle as the e-learning platform. The second school is an international K-12 private school and uses StudyWiz as the e-learning platform. (Contains 5 figures.)
