A day course for librarians (or teachers) working in secondary schools to reflect on the ways that librarian-directed learning can impact on student progress by improving research skills and digital literacy across all Key Stages.
Possible uses of freely available software to enliven lessons will be covered. There will be a real attempt to showcase some practical lesson ideas besides covering the subject theory. So the course should act as an effective springboard for colleagues wishing to take on the challenge of a whole school or complete Key Stage approach. Time will be allocated for forward planning and the course leader will allow time for delegates to share experienceand knowledge.
The day will be split into 5 sessions –
What are we talking about?
Defining Information literacy – what might it mean to 21st century learners?
Practical note-making: creating meaningful aids to learning
Getting the best out of your raw material
The best kind of thinking / Questioning – tricks of the trade
What shall we tell the children?
Identifying Core Skills / Citation and Copyright / Plagiarism
Ways and means
Website evaluation / Fake news and post truth - bias and opinion / Avoiding chalk and talk when you can / Making a useful lesson plan - documenting library skills sessions / What do we need to prove?
Seizing your chances
Approaching a whole school issue / Opportunity knocks! / Watching for developments / Where will you go now?.
Requests to focus on a specific Key Stage will be included where possible. Delegates may indicate a preference on booking and the trainer will aim to incorporate these needs into the appropriate session.
Secondary school librarians / library staff / teachers with a responsibility for learning skills
This course is an updated version of Lin's Tackling Information Literacy in the Secondary School session (included in our progarmme of events in past years).
