    This is an exciting time for educators! Let’s all step out of the box and create an environment for learners that is truly engaging and motivating for students. Who knows… those scary librarians could turn out to be a force of empowerment, when shown the possibilities and given the right tools, encouragement and knowledge to make it happen.

      Thanks for the comment Tracey. I do believe that the day of the scary librarian has past and that there are people in our schools who have the right skill set to support the learning environment. Truthfully, I don’t see those who manage the library/learning commons as the biggest barrier, the biggest barrier is the mindsets of users as they begin to deal with the shift from the library as a place to consume information to a place to use and create new information.
