Sample text

It is not resource-based teaching, where a teacher has selected a variety of resources to complement a lesson. Instead, students direct their learning in stations or centers, building knowledge structures rather than receiving them as the teaching teams model, guide, and provide examples (Sykes, 1997). Resource collections themselves must be “accurate, current, take into consideration the varied interests, abilities, learning styles, special needs, and maturity levels of students. Further, they should have aesthetic, literary, or social value and be of quality physical format or technical design.

This learning needs to be activated and used in presentations demonstrating construction of knowledge. As content areas change so fast, students will need tools to access them as they change. Access cannot be restricted to the privileged; there must be an understanding that libraries can play a vital role in delivering equity of access. Using local and wide-range networks would lead to more virtual access as well as connections from the school library to classrooms, homes, and other libraries at all hours to provide realtime opportunities for the whole community.

The kinds of questions we ask and guide our students in asking should reach for essential truths. McKenzie recommends a “questioning toolbox” be placed next to every computer station in K–12. We must encourage students to develop “telling questions”; to explore raw data, then compare it to a topic; and to build meaning from telling questions. After all, authentic research explores the unknown. McKenzie (1997b) proposed a cyclic research model: question-plan-gather-sort and sift-synthesize-evaluate-report.
