Resourcing for Curriculum Innovation

Learning in a Changing World

By June Wall, Sandra Ryan

Since the advent of the digital age, resourcing for student learning has become more complex and more challenging for school libraries, while at the same time the volume of information has increased. This book provides both an approach to developing school library collections and a balanced view of the types of resources required for student learning. No longer is the book the sole information resource. Books and digital collections must now share equal space for learning, as that is the growing nature of students' learning needs. Resourcing for Curriculum Innovation outlines the types of information resources needed for curriculum change and innovation, as well as the skills which enable students to process the information. (The Learning in a Changing World series by ACER Press addresses how the process of learning is evolving, including the array of resources available in the digital age, the changing curriculum, and the different teaching strategies needed in order to use new media and technologies. The series presents core areas for teachers, librarians, and school leaders to consider for 21st century learning which are: the digital world, virtual worlds, curriculum integration, resourcing, and the physical environment. All are essential elements to enable and empower students to be lifelong learners and active participants in society.)
