Invited Guest or Wedding Crasher?: School Librarians' Involvement in National Initiatives
PROCEEDINGS

School Library Association of Queensland and the International Association of School Librarianship Conference incorporating the International Forum on Research in School Librarianship,

Abstract

Nationwide education initiatives are underway in various parts of the world, including a push for national curricula in the U.S. and Australia. In Australia, school librarians have been invited guests to provide input into the integration of digital/information literacy across curriculum areas. Conversely, U.S., school librarians crashed the wedding by actively responding to the Common Core Standards initiative by highlighting areas where information literacy skills, dispositions, responsibilities and assessments are integrated--even though they weren't asked. Other examples of successful and not so successful national school librarian involvement to infuse 21st century skills and implications for professional practice are discussed.
