Topic 2 – The school librarian – an endangered species?

Image

Each podcast professional was clear in saying that TLs are not endangered and have an essential role in bringing students into the digital era. However, it was also obvious that TLs will need to remain flexible and well skilled when redefining their role and preparing our future digital citizens. I thought it interesting that Henry Jenkins mentioned that in order to evolve as an online mentor, TLs will need ‘adequate funding and support’. There is much discussion about TLs needing to change and stay abreast of technolgy and information seeking behaviours of clients however much of this ability is dependent on funding, staff availability and resources.
