5/30/2014 11:15:13Communication—The communication competency encompasses the set of abilities that students use to impart and exchange information, experiences and ideas, to explore the world around them, and to understand and effectively engage in the use of digital media.

Thinking—The thinking competency encompasses the knowledge, skills and processes we associate with intellectual development. It is through their competency as thinkers that students take subject-specific concepts and content and transform them into a new understanding. Thinking competence includes specific thinking skills as well as habits of mind, and metacognitive awareness.

Personal and Social—Personal and social competency is the set of abilities that relate to students' identity in the world, both as individuals and as members of their community and society. Personal and social competency encompasses the abilities students need to thrive as individuals, to understand and care about themselves and others, and to find and achieve their purposes in the world.

School Libraries are a vital component that is lacking investment

Spaces where students can collaborate on work
There is only one?

Funding needs to be realistic to provide quality education

5/30/2014 11:15:58Students need to be creative and critical thinkers fluent in a variety of modalities.Teachers need to seamlessly incorporate technology into their teaching practices.Schools need to invest in their libraries to assist in the transformation from rooms where books are stored to collaborative learning environments where students create, innovate, and above all THINK!
7
5/30/2014 11:16:15Educators need to facilitate student learning in metacognition, curation and the inquiry process.All of them! We need to meet learners (and teachers) where they are. We need to move towards developing learning 24/7 in all sorts of formats to individualize learning.Schools should invest in both 1) leveling the playing field to eliminate the digital divide and 2) provide out-of-the-box learning experiences for enrichment.Teacher-librarians need to be invited to all tables to keep learning the focus (not ease of management).Continuity! Progress shouldn't be dictated by a transient leadership....it should be set up to accomplish longitudinal goals!Support....this looks like self-directed PD and freedom/autonomy for creative risk-taking.Work/life balance....we need to build in flexibility for all learners (staff and students) to plug in and unplug.

5/30/2014 11:19:08Transliteracy, efficient research skills, metacognition, ability to create and understand, zest for life-long learning, Research based inquiry to help students engage and dig deep into researchLLCs should have a quiet space also for learning. Invest in libraries and teacher education in areas of mental-wellbeing, invest in the arts, create safe and caring spaces.More trickle down. Communication and implementation of new and crucial documents that can change education: they've been written. Let's put them into practice.A chance to play and think and learn.

5/30/2014 11:18:17- Students should be able to demonstrate a critical process of selecting information sources that are appropriate to their information needs.Coaching over dissemination.

Demonstration over recall.

Process, including reflection, holding equal weight with content in evaluation.
Whole school approach over pieces.

Invest in people with passion and understanding, and then ongoing mechanisms for professional learning.
Standards for information / digital literacy embedded within school library program section of document, not just woven throughout with no mention of HOW and WHO shall embed the ICT and research skills so often mentioned.Understanding of linkage between student success and a reading CULTURE in schools, and how school librarians are partner professionals right from start and ongoing.
