EDL 56300 The Digital Librarian

The modern librarian is not only responsible for providing access to content, but also as a source for making connections between students, teachers, and appropriate and authentic audiences. The world increasingly demands critical thinkers and problem solvers, the librarian is in a position to provide guidance and options for presenting and disseminating curated knowledge in relevant and meaningful ways. This course will examine librarians as an important source of digital education: teachers of digital citizenship and ethical use and tools for educational technology. As the role of librarians continues to evolve, this digital responsibility extends to providing a digital presence for the library program, and making communication with stakeholders and the school community a priority.
