A great deal of discussion has taken place regarding the value of both school libraries and school librarians as we watch the informational landscape change. As Commissioner Gist also said, "We have evolved from index cards to world wide databases, from text books to tablets, from oral reports and poster boards to...podcasts and Prezis." Helping students find and access information is just the beginning. Our children are learning how to become responsible digital citizens who can not only navigate a sea of information but also to critically evaluate and apply what they find. It's always wonderful to be surrounded by my colleagues as we work together and support each other's goal to prepare our students for their futures!
