You collaborate – three chances to share your thoughts with a
neighbour in a brief 60 second ‘powershare’ 2 x 30 secs each
Share One: WWW What’s Working Well for you now in terms of new
learning environments and spaces?
Share Two: Thinking clearly about physical spaces – what ideas and
practices do you have that help and/or hinder new ways of learning?
Share Three: Thinking differently about digital spaces – what ideas and
practices do you have that help and/or hinder new ways of learning?

be held at the Adelaide Convention Centre on Friday 15 and Saturday 16
June 2012.
Theme: Strive for rigour, connectedness, supportive environments and
diversity in pedagogy – supported by digital technology’
• How do students protect their digital reputation in a cyber
world?
• How can mobile technology remove the constraints of the
classroom?
• How do you engage students in the decision making about
their learning?
• How can students use their voice to empower their
learning?
• Ubiquitous Learning - how can education capitalise on this
phenomenon?
• Social Learning – how does your school use social media
for learning?
• BYOT – managing the influx of student owned mobile
devices?
• 3D Learning – fad or real potential for teaching and
learning?
• Openness – does your school offer an open or closed
environment?
• Taming the Chaos – bringing order to student digital
learning
• How do we build successful 21st century information
users?
• Is the interactive whiteboard an essential tool?
• What are the possibilities of new media authoring?
• Why move toward an inter-operable world?
• What are the benefits of Google tools?
Key touch points in future learning for library professionals –
• Learning environment
• eLearning technologies
• Learning abilities and dispositions
• Pedagogies
Where do we fit in?
eLiteracy:
differently
Learning environment
Open: courses and resources and learning journeys shared by
teachers, students, parents
Blended: course delivery in classrooms and online
Ubiquitous: or - u-learning - environment which enables
anyone to learn at anyplace at anytime
Flipped: student-owned learning via study of online materials,
and interaction with teachers who are guides and facilitators
rather than instructors
What role for the library professional?
eLiteracy:
eLearning technologies
• LMS (Learning Management System)/VLE (Virtual Learning
Environment) e.g. Blackboard, StudyWhiz, Ultranet,
Moodle
• Mobile, Interoperable, BYOT (Bring Your Own Technology)
differently
• Social, collaborative, ‘cloud’, ‘mashed’
• Curation of course content, resources, networking and
learning applications e.g. using LMS or online software
such as scoop.it, paper.li, etc.
What role for the library professional?
UNESCO’S 4C’s of C21st Skills:
• Critical Thinking
• Communication
• Collaboration
• Communication
eLiteracy:
differently
Learning abilities and dispositions
To be:
• Metacognitive, Reflective, Engaged
• Evaluative in information selection, ethical in its use and
knowledge creation
• Protective of their digital identity and respectful of others’
How can we support development of these learning skills?
• Personalised, differentiated, scaffolded
• Assessment for learning
eLiteracy:

Pedagogies
• ‘Guide-on-the-side’ & ‘Meddler-in-the-middle’!
• Creating curriculum that is transformative – ‘work that
matters’
What can we add to teacher practice?

Physical Spaces:

Flexibility—multiple users and uses

Collaboration—cooperative learning and teamwork

Creativity—engagement in the learning space

Year Four – The
Library of the
Future
White and limitless holding all of the books in the world
Self check out systems with either fingerprint or retina
recognition of the borrower
ebook readers everywhere - owned and borrowed
Large glass, interactive walls conveying information and stories
Robots that will both find and carry resources home for you
From the library catalogue you will put your hands into
the computer and pull out a book
It will be much noisier
There will be lots of couches
They will have a room for each subject and the building
will be shaped like a book
I hope there will still be books – I like books.

What can we do that a microchip can’t do?
in
Digital spaces
Library Management System: interactive interface for one
search location to bring together all resources including
eBooks and loan platforms for DRM (methodology)
Visual social platforms: Reading Nings, VLE library spaces for
resource and reading interaction – blogs, discussions,
journals, chat, wikis (intuitiveness)
What can we do that a microchip can’t do?
in
Digital spaces
Curation using VLE space, focus collections and QR codes
(methodology, intuitiveness)
Library apps for learning (intuitiveness)
Curriculum teams: book and digital resource collections, VLE

What can the library team add to our school learning
environment?
• Centralised federated search software (catalogue) for
online resources indexed with good meta-data with results
delivered in a faceted navigation format
• Information resource links, information skills embedded
into online courses
• Information literacy skills criteria embedded into
assessment criteria rubrics
What are the digital spaces I can use?
Carey Learning Architecture
• CareyLink - Sharepoint entry portal:
• Spydus Library Management System: interactive interface
for one search location to bring together all resources
including eBooks & loan platforms for DRM
What are the digital spaces I can use?

• ClassE (Blackboard) VLE: library spaces for resource lists &
links
• Visual social platforms: Reading Nings, and ClassE library
spaces for reading & writing interaction – blogs,
discussions, journals, chat, wikis

architecture
• works with teachers to design curriculum and learning
experiences so students can learn by repeated contextual
variations

What permeates
the culture of
your library?
Pedagogy: this is the future (of the) school
library. We need a learning commons that
is defined by an inquiry-based
information-to-knowledge pedagogy,
quality teaching, and teacher-librarians as
quality teachers.
