Libraries and Learning
ULearn first and foremost is a celebration of teaching and learning. It is meant to challenge, provoke, and support your practice in ways that are motivating and inspiring. Stepping out of your organisation and comfort zone for professional development is sometimes necessary for growth.
If your school is appointing a new school librarian, or a new Teacher with Library Responsibility – or has made a recent appointment – we’re developing new online courses just for you.
School libraries have an important part to play in helping young people to develop multiple literacies.
At a recent National Library course on supporting priority learners, we discussed how picture books and fiction can be used by teachers and parents/whānau to combine the joy of reading with the joy of learning.
Given the frequency of how often we use digital spaces and devices, the number of people who actually understand how they function is proportionately low.
