The project brief is simple, come up with some new services and technology that can justify or reinforce the role of library in a school.
Most people started by finding new technologies and new services, to me, it is more important to rethink how education may look like in the future, so that we can easily imagine how the library can evolve to adapt to this new teaching and learning landscape.
“21st century education” is a popular term that coined by many educational scholars and educators. So let’s start by looking at the trend of this education development.
I found this article (http://www.innovationunit.org/knowledge/our-ideas/21st-century-learning) very useful as it points out the role of students, educators and schools in the new era of education. It suggested that students learn through meaningful projects, school as a base camp for enquiry learning, educators regard themselves as learners as well as teachers and Learners collaborate in their learning, rather than ‘consuming’ it.
