ED672: School and Community Libraries for 21st Century Learning

This course explores the theoretical underpinnings of information and digital literacies and how they are developed within school and local library programs. Participants examine research supporting the guided inquiry process, problem-based learning, and the effective use of digital and traditional learning resources, as well as how teacher-librarians, classroom teachers and community members collaborate to design and implement effective multi-literacies instruction.

Happy holidays!
