Library as ‘Third Space’ in the School: Supporting Academic & Wellbeing in the School Community
with Lori Korodaj, Teacher Librarian, Lake Tuggeranong College, ACT

 

Beyond day to day service provision, teaching of information and digital literacy skills, and resource transaction, the school library is often a ‘safe space’ for our students and even our staff (teaching & administration). During this session, Lori will explore the concepts of school library as ‘third space’ and supporter of ‘social capital’, and pinpoint those who may access the library in this way. Along the way, she will also explore how the teacher librarian and members of the library team take part in creating this supportive space (in school and in a virtual environment) and provide practical examples/scenarios from her own school library space and practice.

 

After attending, participants will:

  • understand the concept of ‘the third space’/’social capital’ and how it looks in a school library and in a virtual school library space.
  • take away ideas for leading this concept within your own school library.
  • be able to share considerations for embedding the school library as a third space across your entire school community – with school leadership and the student wellbeing team.

Lori is a teacher librarian practitioner with over 20 years of experience in Australia and overseas, in school (K-12) and public libraries. Lori is currently teacher librarian at an ACT senior secondary college (Yr 11-12) and Adjunct Lecturer for the School of Information Studies, Charles Sturt University. She has represented her profession as President of ASLA ACT, as director on the ASLA National Board, and as a member of ASLA’s ACCESS Editorial project team. Lori has written for Australian Teacher Magazine and ACCESS and has delivered professional learning at ASLA conferences and via webinar. Professional passions: providing professional learning to colleagues, advocacy for the importance of teacher librarians in schools, educational technology, and mentoring up and coming teacher librarians.

3.3 – Using teaching strategies
3.4 – Select and use resources
6.2 – Engage in professional learning and improve practice

Creating Infographics Using Microsoft Tools [replay]
with Brendan Kelly, Digital Media Officer, & Cathy Oxley, Director of Information Services, Brisbane Grammar School

 

[If you missed this webinar that was held earlier in the year, you can catch the replay on Wednesday, 14 August.]

 

Data is playing an ever-increasing role in everything we want to learn about or improve. Traditionally, we sought out statistics to help us understand data. This method no longer sufficiently caters to the needs of the 21st century information interpreter. Infographics are the evolution of statistical data or information when enhanced through visual symbology to effect clearer and more rapid cognition of information. They make information sharing more potent and effective.

 

Infographics need not be solely the domain of the digital content creator. This session will explore some of the free tools that can be used to assist creators to make infographic objects, but more importantly, users will learn how to create compelling infographic media using typical software they have likely been using since before the turn of the century!

 

Outcomes for attendee:

  • Understand the importance, relevance and impact infographics can have when displaying information
  • Gain knowledge of a range of free infographic creation resources that can be accessed
  • Create infographic elements using standard Microsoft applications

What previous attendees had to say:
“I look forward to using this information to create infographics in my library.”
“I now know how to create different objects for the sole purpose of infographic creation for my classroom themes/topics/lessons.”
“Thanks for a very informative discussion on the tools to use when creating an infographic.”
“You made it look sooooo easy!”

 

Brendan Kelly has enjoyed working across a range of academic and public libraries for the last fifteen years culminating in finding his dream job in digital media for one of the best performing schools in Australia.
He works with teaching staff to enhance their capacity to create and deliver high quality digital learning resources as well as directly with students to increase their digital literacy skills. The unique and very special link between library services and education delivery and outcomes motivates his passion to explore meaningful ways to integrate technology into the mix.

 

Cathy Oxley has worked as a teacher librarian for nearly 30 years in both primary and secondary schools and, since 2009, has been Director of Information Services at Brisbane Grammar School, overseeing the three libraries at the school. She has presented locally, nationally and internationally during this time at many conferences and events and has also written articles for various library journals including ACCESS, Synergy, and International Information & Library Review. She has been a member of the Queensland School Library Association Brisbane sub-committee for nearly 20 years, with the last six years as President. In 2017 she was awarded Queensland Teacher Librarian of the Year.
