Keys to Success: transforming information and digital literacy for students replay
Content presented by Holly Godfree and Lori Korodaj, Teacher librarians at Lake Tuggeranong College

 

The world of employment is changing and employers are looking for employees with more “generic, 21st Century Skills”.  Declining numbers of teacher librarians in P-10 schools mean that many students are not mastering these skills before they come to Year 11. TLs at Lake Tuggeranong College created the Keys to Success program to fill these gaps.

 

Now in its second year, Keys to Success is delivered with a mixture of face to face and independent work via Google Classroom. This allows 24/7 access to work for those students unable to attend and blends ‘traditional’ teaching with online delivery.

 

Aspects of the program are not “perfect” – our primary challenge is getting students to attend! Unfortunately, often they “don’t know what they don’t know” . . . But with a very supportive principal and our creative problem solving caps firmly in place, we are hoping to gain momentum over the coming years.

 

This session will be useful to secondary school practitioners looking to fill the gaps for their students and for primary school practitioners with an eye on transitions who want their students to avoid those gaps in the first place.

 

Outcomes for attendee:

  • Identify the skills and concepts that need to be targeted to fill common gaps in students’ knowledge
  • Use the Keys to Success model of delivery as a springboard for generating a program to suit your school community.
  • Use the Keys to Success content as a “To Do List” for targeting skills and generating lessons to suit your school community.

Holly taught in primary schools for 15 years before moving to senior secondary in 2015. She “slid” into the school library in 2006 and completed her MEdTL in 2015. For years now, she has been very active in local and national efforts to advocate for improvements in school library resourcing. She has published articles in Access, Public Education Voice, and The Canberra Times relating to these efforts.

 

Lori is a teacher librarian practitioner with over 20 years experience in Australia and overseas, in school (K-12) and public libraries.  Lori is currently a teacher librarian at a senior secondary college (Yr 11-12) and a sessional marker for the School of Information Studies, Charles Sturt University. She has represented her profession as President of the Australian School Library Association (ASLA) ACT and as a director on the ASLA Board, and was a member of ASLA’s ACCESS Editorial project team.  Lori has written for Australian Teacher Magazine as well as for ASLA’s national publication, ACCESS. 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.

Makerspaces and Students’ Wellbeing
with Jackie Child, Teacher Librarian and Sessional Tutor

 

The Maker Movement is changing societal thinking and working, putting purpose, fun, passion and ownership back into our students’ learning. We are entering the greatest age of innovation and creativity in human history.

 

When students engage in the many activities and opportunities provided in our library makerspace they relax and have fun. It is non-threatening … no testing or grading! It’s a place where they can fulfil their own desire to give things a go. Failing becomes part of the fun. To solve problems and challenges when creating and trying to make things work gives children confidence to succeed. Students can share, collaborate and help each other in the pursuit of making. A child’s wellbeing is of utmost importance and a makerspace can be one place to assist in ensuring a child is stimulated yet feels safe and relaxed. The joy and happiness we have seen in our makerspace is evident of students’ wellbeing.

 

Outcomes for attendee:

  • Overview of setting up a Junior Library Makerspace
  • Equipment and resources for a successful makerspace
  • Research evidence that shows students with high levels of wellbeing are more likely to have higher academic achievement, better mental health, and a more pro-social, responsible and fulfilled lifestyle.

Jackie Child has been teaching primary aged students for over 40 years in a number of countries. She is passionate about how children learn through constructivist pedagogy. She is a Teacher Librarian at St Aidan’s Anglican Girls’ School and a sessional tutor at Griffith University for pre-service teachers using technology to enhance teaching and learning. Jackie doesn’t believe in standing still, there is always plenty to ‘do’ and learn!

Media Literacy and Fake News replay
with Karen Bonanno, National Director, Eduwebinar

 

[Note: As Daylight Saving Time has commenced in Australia please check the time of this event in your time zone at Event Time Announcer.]

 

Young people tend to be fooled by “fake” news and, for most, they get their news from social media platforms rather than traditional news sources.

 

Recent studies reveal that students struggle to clearly identify what are “real” news stories, with a percentage of students indicating they had shared news stories online that they later found were wrong or inaccurate.

 

This session will share some of the research findings and then explore the following:

  • what is media literacy and why we need to teach it to our students;
  • what is fake news and the importance of lateral reading;
  • teaching strategies to identify and analyse fake news;
  • classroom activities with simple rubrics; and
  • digital resources to support classroom programs.

What previous attendees had to say about this digital broadcast:
“The content was relevant and easy to follow.”
“Very useful information, particularly the examples shown and the links provided. The statistics at the beginning provided a great framework for why this is so important.”
“Looking forward to exploreing the resources shared and how I might use these with my students & share with staff at my school.”
“Great webinar – timely topic and well presented.”

 

Karen Bonanno has over 35 years experience working across difference education sectors and with professional associations. As the National Director for Eduwebinar she is involved in planning and hosting webinars that cover primary and secondary education with specific focus on innovative teaching and learning strategies and resourcing as it applies to curriculum design and delivery.
