Appeal for Change
Michael Stephen’s Tame the Web features a reprint of the article: The hyperlinked school library: engage, explore, celebrate, originally published by the Australian School Library Association. Arguing that the financial crisis compels us to move towards the needed changes (when we need those changes anyway) may be an effective lever for those reluctant media specialists who still resist moving into a 21st century already a decade old. Let’s hope so. Stephen’s appeal is well-informed and nicely put. For those of us who have embraced the change, the article provides some nice reinforcement to share with colleagues who question the changes we’ve implemented. If you’d like to share, you can download a PDF of the article here. The article was based on a presentation at ASLA which you can view here.
