Introduction

Welcome from the EduTECH team How quickly four years pass! It feels like only yesterday that EduTECH first opened its doors. Since 2011 the event has grown by over 900 per cent, becoming the biggest and most prominent face-to-face education, training and technology meeting place in the southern hemisphere.

This year EduTECH will host nine congresses (with four congresses dedicated to specific roles within K-12 schools), 35 practical breakout sessions, eight masterclasses, 180 speakers, 850 gala dinner guests, 200 exhibitors with free seminars for exhibition visitors ... and more than 4000 delegates. EduTECH is the only event that brings together the entire education and training sector, including primary, secondary, tertiary, higher education and workplace learning, plus libraries, government, and suppliers ... all under one roof. And we’ve worked tirelessly to bring you the world’s most respected and sought after teaching and learning experts, right here in Australia! Not only will you be inspired and gain international insights from big-picture speakers like Sir Ken Robinson, Sir John Daniel, Prof Sugata Mitra, Ewan McIntosh, Conrad Wolfram, Ian Jukes (to name a few), but you’ll also hear from over 150 down-toearth educators and trainers who — together — guarantee you’ll return to work with the practical and relevant information and tools you need to make a difference. Of course, EduTECH is not only about the brilliant speakers and thousands of delegates. We also host a FREE exhibition with over 200 leading suppliers, and expert consultants who are all on-hand to help and advise YOU. This is a once-a-year opportunity for all delegates and visitors to immerse themselves in the technology and

solutions which are already improving the way we teach, train and learn. We also invite you to get involved in the community by joining our speakers, exhibitors and thousands of like-minded individuals on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. In fact, you don’t even need to attend EduTECH to benefit from the year-round news, resources, discussions and advice which is shared on our website www.edutech.net.au and our social media channels. Other features that ensure EduTECH offers you maximum value include: • Official EduTECH Gala Dinner for 850 pre-registered guests, including Sir Ken Robinson as guest of honour, plus great food, entertainment, prizes and dancing.

picked after months of market research and delegate feedback. This is a rare opportunity to spend an entire day learning from someone like Sugata Mitra, Alan November or Joyce Valenza. However, note that numbers are strictly limited on these masterclasses, so you’ll need to book early. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all our Advisory Board Members, our loyal sponsors and exhibitors, our media partners and our supporting industry bodies and associations for their year-round effort in producing the biggest and most successful EduTECH ever. Lastly, I’d like to thank and congratulate YOU — the more than 300,000 dedicated men and women from the education and training community — for your enthusiastic support of EduTECH and your commitment to your own professional

9 congresses, 35 breakout sessions, 8 masterclasses, 180 speakers, 850 gala dinner guests, 200 exhibitors and more than 4000 delegates. • Prizes, prizes, prizes - over $70,000 worth of lucky draw, Treasure Hunt and other prizes will be given away at EduTECH. The main prize — a new CAR valued at $19,990 — will be drawn on the exhibition floor during the afternoon tea break on day two (last year this was won by a very excited school teacher from Adelaide). • App - EduTECH’s own app will be available in App stores approximately three weeks prior to the event (search for ‘EduTECH 2014 Brisbane’). The EduTECH app is designed to offer delegates and visitors an enhanced experience before, during and after the event. The app’s features enable delegates to plan their visit to the event including creating schedules of sessions, finding exhibitors who they are interested in meeting and making enquiries prior to the event, learning more about speakers and connecting with them directly through social media and shortlisting organisations to engage with at the exhibition. • Masterclasses - to maximise the value of your trip to Brisbane, by popular request, we’re running eight postcongress masterclasses, each led by an international education guru hand-

development, which will see you continue to lead Australia towards 21st century learning. I look forward to meeting you in Brisbane on June 3-5, 2014!

Masterclasses

Dr. Sugata Mitra

Ewan McIntosh

Dr. Gary Stager

Alan November

An educational visionary, described by London’s The Times newspaper as a ‘Global Education Superstar’, Sugata Mitra is Professor of Educational Technology at Newcastle University in the UK. He specialises in cognitive science, information science and educational technology and works to close the digital education divide. Mitra’s groundbreaking ‘holein-the-wall’ experiment revealed that children from any given socio-economic or cultural background can master the use of computers and the internet (and even figure out complex subjects such as DNA sequencing, trigonometry and avionics) in the absence of any direct teacher input. Mitra’s current mission is to develop a learning lab in India called the ‘School in the Cloud,’ where children can learn through an engagement with online information and mentoring.

As a French and German teacher in Scottish high schools, Ewan McIntosh worked to incorporate technology into his classroom and proudly claims to be amongst the first in Europe to use podcasts and blogs with his students. After leaving the teaching profession, McIntosh worked as a national advisor on Learning and Technology Futures for the Scottish Government before changing career tack, and becoming digital commissioner for the British broadcaster Channel 4. It was in this role he discovered the premise for NoTosh, a company that researches and delivers new learning opportunities for some of the world’s top creative companies and school districts. McIntosh works with schools to give them an understanding of how to be creative in the classroom and allow creativity to deliver great teaching and learning.

Described by Converge Magazine as the ‘shaper of our future and the inventor of our destiny’, Gary Stager is an internationally recognised educator, speaker and consultant. Presently the executive director of The Constructivist Consortium, he has allowed people of all ages from across the globe to embrace the power of computers as intellectual laboratories and vehicles for self-expression. In 1990 he pioneered the professional development in the world’s first laptop schools and since the mid-’90s has been designing online graduate school programs. He has worked to teach and mentor some of Australia’s ‘most troubled’ students in public schools, launching 1:1 computing programs and acting as a school STEM director. Stager was named as one of the 20 Leaders to Watch by The National School Boards Association in 2007.

Known for pushing the boundaries of what teachers think is possible in teaching and learning, Alan November is an International leader in educational technology. He is quite possibly the first person to have a student project online in 1984, a database for the handicapped. November has worked as an oceanography teacher and dorm counsellor, a computer science teacher, the director of an alternative high school, a computer coordinator and university lecturer, all before launching professional development service November Learning. His areas of expertise include planning across the curriculum, new school design, community building and leadership development. He is also the author of two best-selling books Empowering Students with Technology and Web Literacy for Educators.

How to inspire your students by creating your own ‘holes in the wall’ and ‘school in the cloud’ Be inspired by the man recently described by The Times newspaper as a “Global Education Superstar”. Understand the concepts behind his ‘hole in the wall’ project and current wish to ‘build a school in the cloud’. Then find out how you can apply these concepts in your school, to design ‘Self Organised Learning Environments’ that stimulate curiosity and a passion for learning, through self-instruction and peer-shared knowledge.

EduTECH 2014 Guide



Design thinking in the Australian curriculum This Masterclass is designed for teachers and leaders to understand the planning and pedagogy that helps students take more control of their learning, to find the balance between teacher and student ownership of the learning process, and design creativity into learning through a common process and language to learn about learning. There are resources, techniques and advice on how to take these ideas back to your own teaching teams.

Children, computers, and powerful ideas This Masterclass will explore: • How the computationally-rich technologies of the maker movement may be used to affect real educational progress • Super-charging project-based learning • Using computers to maximise student agency • How modern knowledge construction is inseparable from computing • Honoring learning with head, heart, and hands equally.

Student led learning — the first five days One of the original five Christa McAuliffe Educators, November is a global education leader in the truest sense. He has worked with schools, governments and industry leaders the world over to improve the quality of education through technology. In this Masterclass, November will explore ways to motivate your students and will make sure you go back to your school with a ready implementation plan for studentled learning.

International Speaker Insight

Ewan McIntosh Ewan McIntosh is the founder of NoTosh Limited, an Edinburgh-based company that works to inspire some of the world’s top creative companies and school communities. Why did you decide to get involved with EduTECH this year? 2013 was my EduTECH debut, and I remember the excitement I felt entering the main conference space, hearing Dan Pink share his point of view. That excitement continued hearing other keynote presenters, and the scores of practitioners sharing what innovative work they’re up to day-in, day-out, in the classroom. It’s surprisingly rare to feel that excitement about a lot of events, when you consider how many potential conferences we could go to in the year. Despite appearances, I don’t go to or speak at a lot of conferences — most of my time is working alongside teachers and students — but this is one event I want to make a point of getting to every year. Without giving too much away, what can delegates expect from your presentation? I cannot stand hearing a keynote presenter tell the same stories I heard last month, let alone last year, so the simple answer is: something totally different! My entire team at NoTosh has been learning more about why our work in using design thinking and formative assessment strategies is having such an impact. Which other speakers will you be hoping to see and engage with at the conference? First and foremost, I rarely get a chance to see my own teammate, Tom Barrett, present in keynote form, as we’re based on different sides of the planet, so he’s top of my list as he shares how our work has helped specifically in an Australian context. On top of that, I just want to hang out with as many innovative teachers as possible and learn informally, as much as from the formal talks. The corridors of EduTECH have keynotes in every nook and cranny if you seek them out. Tell us about your own school experience. As a student, my experience at school was really mixed. I was a good kid, who worked hard, played the game and did well. On the other hand, I got into trouble for doing things that I felt were right — publishing an exposé in the student newspaper about how chips (or

18

EduTECH 2014 Guide



fries) cost a third of the healthy salad option in the school cafeteria, that led to the resignation of the catering director for the district. It was the right thing to do, but adults don’t like the boat to be rocked too hard. That said, it’s experiences like that, and there were a few, that shape my thinking today — I want to question everything we assume as right, prod it to check it’s really as good as it could be. Why did you start NoTosh Limited and what have been some of your most proud achievements with the company? As a French and German teacher in Scottish high schools I relentlessly put technology to work in an effort to engage students, with my high school classes being amongst the first in Europe to podcast and blog. Later, I worked as national advisor on Learning and Technology Futures for the Scottish Government before changing career tack, and becoming digital commissioner for the groundbreaking British broadcaster Channel 4. During my time there, the premise for NoTosh was discovered: the creative people I worked with every day there used certain processes, tactics and strategies to consistently create imaginative, engaging digital services for teens. On the flip side, educators were being told that creativity was important, but no-one seemed to be explaining how. NoTosh was to give an upfront, no nonsense understanding of how the people in the creative industries are creative, and how it fits with what we know makes great teaching and learning. A key part of this is the idea that those who will flourish in the future are not just those who can solve problems, but those who can find great problems to solve (or opportunities to fill) in the first instance. This long line of challenging the status quo has led to some of our best projects. We directed the digital strategy of the election campaign in 2011 that led to the landslide victory for the Scottish National Party, paving the way for 2014’s referendum on Independence from the United Kingdom. I’m equally proud of those teachers we’ve worked with over four years who’ve seen huge impact on the engagement and attainment of their students. We’ve also run incubators for the United Nations, that have led to groundbreaking work in bringing education and technology to amputee victims from the civil war in Sierra Leone, and helped tens of thousands of women in India improve their literacy during their morning commute to work on the bus. I’m proud of every project we’ve done, bar two exceptions. We gave them their money back. There’s more to this STORY online bit.ly/edutech14

Speaker Snap Quiz My favourite teacher at school was ... my Dad. He just let me get on with it, nudged me onto the straight and narrow when I was heading off course — nothing more — and as a result my best results were in music. A book that changed my life: The Power and the Glory, by Graham Greene. It was the first book I read that I loved, that showed me you could actually read FOR PLEASURE. I find daily inspiration ... in my own children. It’s why you’ll see me travel less and less in the years to come. The inspiration from long plane rides is waning. Catriona aged 6, and Anna, 3, never cease to inspire the next big idea. If I was on a deserted island and could only bring three items with me, I would bring ... a laptop, solar supply and 3G card. Then I’d not be alone. The song I’m currently listening to on my iPod is ... Formidable, by Stromae. He’s Belgian, the new Jacques Brel. His lyrics are incredibly clever and describe the kind of malaise we’re seeing in quite a lot of European countries at the moment. At school I was ... a band dweeb, who redeemed himself by being an excellent drummer.

International Speaker Insight

Ian Jukes A prolific speaker, writer, reader and innovator, Ian Jukes is the director of an international consulting group that provides leadership and program development to clients globally. He is also the publisher of an online electronic newsletter, the Committed Sardine Blog, which is electronically distributed to almost 90,000 people in 60-plus countries. IN any given year, Ian Jukes will spend 200 days presenting to more than 350,000 people. The director of an international consulting group is inately hilarious, and has a deep and profound knowledge of his subject area. It’s no wonder he has been invited to speak in 79 difference countries over the years. Yet, he believes that EduTECH 2014 has one of the best speaker lineups he’s ever come across, saying he doesn’t think he’ll be getting any sleep while in Brisbane because he’ll be too busy watching the presenters. “Very infrequently, if ever, have I ever seen the quality of presenters and not only the quality of presenters but also the diversity of the presenters,” Jukes shares. “This is going to be my treat and my honour to be able to come and talk at the conference. This is not Australian quality, this is absolutely world-class.” During his talk at the conference, Jukes says he’s going to give delegates ‘a nice swift kick’ in the assumptions. “The skills that most students leave school with today are great skills for another time that no longer exists and what we have to do today is we have to get over our discomfort with some of the things that are coming out,” Jukes says. “Our job as educators is to prepare students for their future rather than our past.” While Jukes assures audiences his presentation is going to be fast-paced, provocative and contain a slideshow with almost no words, his ultimate goal is to ensure people walk away overwhelmed by what they have witnessed and feel empowered to do something about it. One of the main areas he will cover is social media, because Jukes believes schools in Australia and New Zealand are ‘blowing it’ when it comes to the use of this technology in their classrooms. “Technology like this is banned. It’s banned and it’s considered to be a distraction,” Jukes begins. “Kids need to be able to use social media

20

EduTECH 2014 Guide



and they need to be able to use social media tools the very same way that we use Bunsen burners in the classroom today. “These are tools for learning but that goes back to the notion of misunderstanding and disrespect that we don’t understand the potential of these technologies to transform learning. We’re blowing it. “We’re absolutely blowing the opportunity to connect with these kids. What a lot of kids see is what’s happening in schools has very little relevance to what goes on in their lives and what goes on in the future of their lives.” Jukes says educators should be looking at social media tools like Snapchat, Skype, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to figure out how to use them effectively to engage digital learners. He says one of the real problems is that many adults see students nowadays staring at their computers and think that they lack social skills, but his isn’t the case. “They’re not addicted to technology, they’re addicted to friendship,” Jukes says. “These kids today are incredibly social. I can tell you in the United States and Canada, young adults send 4000 to 5000 text messages a month, which is pretty social to me. “The thing is that today they just aren’t social in the way we think of social. We think of social as being face-to-face and you think of social as being handshakes and things like that. “They can be social that way but they can be social in other ways and some of the ways that they’re social is really disorientating to us.” According to Jukes, one of the real challenges is that the traditional school system, of which most teachers experienced first-hand, no longer caters for the learners of today. “There’s tremendous pressure in the school system, there’s tremendous pressure for school leaders — it’s a tough gig. I personally think that being an educator today in the digital age or what I call the new digital landscape, it’s the hardest job in the world. “But they’ve got a rubber band inside them and they tend to teach the way they were taught when they were kids.” Having written 14 books and hundreds of articles on these topics, Jukes really is an expert in his field. He says that delegates at EduTECH 2014 are spoiled for choice and he’s excited to be a part of that. “If you want to talk about curriculum, there’s a place for it. If you want to talk about creativity, there’s a place for it. If you want to talk about emerging technology, there’s a place for it,” he says. “The problem is going to be for most people attending is figuring out exactly what it is they want to listen to because we’re going to be all competing against one another for ears.”

Speaker Snap Quiz My favourite teacher at school was … Walter Gage because he was a 75-year-old president of the university, and I was in an audience of 1000 people and yet I swear he was talking directly to me. A book that changed my life is… The World is Flat by Thomas Friedman. I find daily inspiration …. reading from as many diverse subject areas as I possibly can. Every day I read 70 to 80 articles in all sorts of fields, they have to do with education, they have to do with religion, they have to do with politics, they have to do with everything. I never leave home without … my common sense. The song I’m currently listening to on my iPod is … Stairway to Heaven by Led Zepplin. At school I was … completely bored. I spent my entire time staring out the window. I was a professional north American football player for seven years and if I hadn’t had athletics when I was in elementary school and high school and university, I would either be dead, or I’d be be in jail or driving a truck today. I was completely disengaged in the classroom and that’s one of the reasons why I’m so passionate.

Jukes delivers a closing keynote on Aligning Technology Initiatives in the Age of Disruptive Innovation. June 4 (Day Two) at 3.50pm.

Local Speaker Insight

Meet the speakers The calibre of speakers at EduTECH 2014 is undoubtedly the reason why it is a must-see event. One of the conference’s keynote presenters, Ian Jukes has likened them to an expensive hotel’s buffet. He says that although there are 30 pieces of cheesecake you’d like to try, realistically you’d only be able to try two or three varieties. This is true of the EduTECH conference. Despite wanting to see and listen to all the speakers on the bill, you realistically will only have time to see a handful of those on your wishlist. We have spoken to a range of local speakers and they have shared with us their views on where they see technology headed over the next 10 or so years. They’ve also filled us in on what their schools and organisations are doing to challenge the status quo when it comes to technology. Have you ever wondered what Jenny Luca is listening to on her iPod or what Dan Haesler was like in school? Or have you ever considered what three items Peter Adams would take with him if he were on a deserted island? Yes, we’ve asked these people those questions. We have included a few short snippets of our interviews with them here. To read the interviews in their entirety, please visit our website. There’s more to this online bit.ly/edutech14

EduTECH 2014 Guide



Anne Weaver

Dan Haesler

Anne Weaver is the head of library and information services at All Hallows’ School in Brisbane. Their new library will support the schools’ strategic learning objectives and blended learning.

A dynamic keynote speaker, teacher, writer and consultant, Dan Haesler is returning to speak at EduTECH following his 2012 appearance. He is the founder of Happy Schools, a model that encourages engagement in schools by combatting a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach.

What can delegates expect from your presentation? My presentation will be about ‘how does a space reflect the evolution of a library in the 21st Century?’ Now, instead of information being the big thing, there’s the spatial and social aspects. The library has gone from being reading-centred, to storage-centred, and now were into learning-centred. So we’ve tried to design a space that shows this evolution of learning. Why are events like EduTECH important for educators? I hope my talk challenges people’s thinking, I think every library is a niche and you have to find where you sit in your library community and in your school learning community. Teacher librarians need to be very much thinking ‘what does my school need and want?’ It’s very much you are a product of what your school needs. What will delegates walk away with after your presentation? EduTECH brings a vision about ‘where are we going next?’. In terms of learning, many of us go to these events and come back and have all these ideas we want to implement — it helps us learn just like students learn. Most teacher-librarians might be the only ones at their school, so this way we can come together and be inspired. Anne Weaver will speak on June 3 (Day One) at 11.35am.

Without giving too much away, what will you be presenting at EduTECH this year? I’m looking at how technology can be used to enhance genuine engagement and wellbeing in our kids and our educational organisations. So, how can we embrace the connectivity and the collaborative potential, but also the ability to actually affect positive change? How can we embed those principles into the way we educate so that, not only are kids learning, but they’re actually enhancing their engagement with the wider world? Are you going to attend some of the other talks by other presenters? For sure, I’m going to be all over it! I’ll be sticking my head into lots of different talks and I think there’s a couple of ‘teach meets’ happening, and I’ll definitely be sticking my head in there, you know to listen – I’m a big fan of listening. It’s one thing to get up there and give a talk but I often go to these things and walk away having learnt a lot more than I’ve taught anyone else. Why do you feel events like EduTECH are important for educators? I think it’s good because, looking at the speakers this year, one of the primary things will be looking to push people’s thinking, I’m hoping, and push the boundaries of what they think is possible. Dan Haesler will speak on June 4 (Day Two) at 10.40am.

Jenny Luca

Karin Gilbert

Peter Adams

Jenny Luca is the director of ICT and eLearning at Toorak College in Victoria. She leads the school’s direction in its usage of technology and has led the school to become a Google Apps for Education school this year.

Karin Gilbert is head of the Learning Resource Centre at Lowther Hall Anglican Grammar School in Melbourne. An educator and information specialist, she offers an insight into maximising the knowledge sharing potential of learning spaces and organisations.

As former general manager of Assessment and Reporting at ACARA, Peter Adams brings to EduTECH a wealth of experience in the Australian school education sector. Adams hopes delegates will take from his presentation a better understanding of the work being done in Australia and overseas on online assessment.

Why did you decide to get involved with EduTECH this year? EduTECH’s just a pretty amazing conference, particularly in terms of the keynote speakers that are drawn to it, they are really quite incredible. It’s certainly going to attract a lot of people from all different kinds of roles within schools, so IT managers, teacher librarians, principals, regular school teachers — it’s a great opportunity to meet a lot of people, network, make connections and learn from others. How do you stay abreast of the latest technologies? Twitter is my most effective network, it’s where I do most of my learning. I find that by following hash tags, by following key words in Twitter, using tweet decks to manage and curate information, that really helps me to hone into what’s happening out there, who’s doing what in different locations, who’s leading the field, who do I need to be looking at and who do I need to be making contact with in order to learn from them. So Twitter becomes the launch pad for the development of networks ... often I’ll see someone who’s doing great work and I’ll make direct contact with that person and then find ways to work with that person and learn from them. Hopefully it’s a reciprocal thing and they’ll be learning from me at the same time. Jenny Luca will speak on June 3 (Day One) at 1.35pm.

24

EduTECH 2014 Guide



What will delegates walk away with after your presentation? All of us need to know and find connections and share knowledge. I think that the flow of knowledge in any area will ... improve student learning. We all desire this no matter our school, our history, our staff, we have to be adaptable and we have to continue to build frameworks adaptable to the changing learning environment. We can’t do this in isolation, so again this focus on the deprivatisation of our practice. We lose our effectiveness unless we work together to leverage what is happening around us. I think community environments such as EduTECH facilitate this.

What have you worked on at ACARA that you’re particularly proud of? The work I’m doing at the moment probably represents ongoing work from the major project that I started in December 2006, which was the NAPLAN Literacy and Numeracy program.

Why are events like EduTECH important for educators? I think that everyone that presents offers a connection to the power of their story, they’re all unique, but as leaders in learning spaces that are libraries or learning commons or research centres, we are especially connected to the organisation of information retrieval and of building knowledge.

Without giving away too much, can you give us an idea of what you’ll be talking about at EduTECH? I suppose the main focus will be looking at online assessment from a range of dimensions, not just national testing, but also online assessment in classrooms. It will be focussing in on two aspects — one will be the opportunities that online assessment or technology assisted assessment brings, the other aspect of my discussion will be looking at challenges that are associated with online assessment. My presentation will also address fundamental questions about teaching and learning that are inextricably linked with the profound impact of technology generally, and in education specifically. I will consider both the potential threats of technology along with the real benefits it can bring — especially in the classroom. I hope to provoke thought and questioning about current and possible future practice — to consider first and guiding principles.

Karin Gilbert will speak on June 4 (Day Two) at 11.15am.

Peter Adams will speak on June 4 (Day Two) at 2.35pm.

What do you think you can offer the audience that they can’t get elsewhere? I’m a head of Learning Resource Centre, so I try to bring that context of the way we understand information in learning.

Transitioning library services How is your school helping students make the important connection between the curriculum and the library? Customers are telling us that today’s “Connected Generation” of students expect quicker access to information, resulting in the library being ignored as a validated source of curriculum related references. Students now perceive sources such as Wikipedia to be the Oracle of Academia. Schools are rapidly transitioning into digital teaching and learning institutions. So what is a digital teaching and learning institution? Is it an institution where traditional methods of teaching and learning have simply been automated with some new technology tools like an electronic catalogue or a learning management system? Or is it an institution where modern pedagogical practices are realised by harnessing the power of new technologies to deliver previously impossible or impractical outcomes? Or is it a place where library, curriculum, assessment, teaching, and learning merge to create a powerful learning ecosystem? School libraries operating in today’s connected world are faced with challenges quite different from those faced by most of the current cohort of TLs. They have to consider a number of current issues including accountability, instant access, audience expectations, targeted guidance and timely communication. The modern student is agile, connected and demanding, operating in, and influenced by, a world where technology delivers instant gratification, provides anywhere, anytime access to information, and caters for social interaction experiences on the web. They expect nothing less from their place of learning. The role of the modern teacher librarian 52

hasn’t changed too dramatically over time but the environment in which they practice their profession has evolved to be almost unrecognisable from what it was just a few short years ago. Today’s connected students demand immediate access to online information at any time of the day or night. And if they can’t get what they want through the school library then they will source it from the Internet, often regardless of quality or authenticity. How does the modern

Schools using our Infiniti Library Management System tell us that as a Cloud service it delivers ease of use and accessibility, providing the ability to quickly capture and disseminate any source of information, and that as a result students are now

“A teacher librarian is the lynchpin between information resources and the curriculum.” teacher librarian ensure these clients’ needs are met? Today’s teacher librarian is in a unique position to be the lynchpin between information resources and the curriculum. The modern teacher librarian is evolving into a digital teacher librarian, a facilitator, sourcing curriculum support resources in a variety of digital formats to support the curriculum, from numerous online locations, and channelling these to waiting online audiences. They are fully involved in

acknowledging that going back to the library for validated curriculum digital and physical resources is preferential to the online maze of facts and fiction. A library that adds value to the future potential of a student is a library of value to the “Connected Generation”. Concord has been working with and supporting schools with technology solutions that help manage pedagogical related knowledge, including Library Management and Criteria Based Assessment Management solutions.
