1 In Schools That Face The Future:-Libraries Matter PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 111

2 AN UPDATE / REFRESHER ON SOME THINGS THAT WILL CHALLENGE YOU AND SOME THINGS THAT WILL REASSURE YOU PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 11 2 2

3  To Analyze The Probable Characteristics Of A “Transparent Democracy” Environment  To Suggest CAUSES as well as SYMPTOMS Of Some Of The Major Challenges For Futures Oriented Schools Using Digital Technologies  To Suggest Some SOLUTION APPROACHES- Including Examples for the Roles of Librarians  To Provide Some USEFUL STIMULUS MATERIALS For Further Use by Librarians PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 113

4 CONTINUOUS PARTIAL ATTENTION ( Seligman) SCANNING FOR OPPORTUNITIES (SEEING LINKAGES AND CONNECTIONS) Built Upon Speed Reading ( i.e. 21 st C Literacy is essential) Making Initial Decisions Quickly about “ Big Ideas” and the Value of that Content. E.G:- * Really Useful- Need to go Back and Look Again * Could Be Useful- I Know Where It Is When I Need It * Can’t Use It- Move On PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 11

5  Public Pressures-”The Transparent Democracy”  Specific issues and Pressures from a “Transparent Democracy”  Australian Societal Trends  Change Pressures from New Technologies  Schools As Networked Learning Communities  Generational Differences in Learning  Teachers, Students And Learning Communities  Some Action Suggestions For Librarians as Leaders in Schools PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 115

6  Futures Oriented Schools Are Very Different From The Ones That Many Of You, And I Learned In, And Trained To Teach In  THE SCRUTINY AND EXPECTATIONS OF THE AUSTRALIAN COMMUNITY ARE ALSO VERY DIFFERENT  Schools are developing Into Networked Learning Communities  The main investment and activity with I.C.T. for students and staff is IN THE HOME/OUTSIDE THE SCHOOL  The Library is central to the evolution of relevant schooling ◦ Excellent Ref:-Lee M., Finger, G.(2010) Developing a Networked School Community ACER PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 116

7 Hay 2010,151: “An iCentre is the central facility within the school where information, technology, learning and teaching needs are supported by qualified information and technology specialists” At the most conceptual level the iCentre is an amalgam of the following functions:- ◦ The School Librarian taking leadership roles as the Chief Information Officer of the school ◦ The iCentre becoming the location for all ICT support and advice ◦ The iCentre becoming an exemplar centre of a digital learning location and support facility PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 117

9  MH Selections Available As pdf Readings:- ◦ LEE & GAFFNEY CH 2 ◦ CRANSTON & EHRLICH CH 11  Mal Lee Is Based At Broulee on South Coast NSW PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 119

10 Peter Ellyard  Teachers Need To Become:- “KNOWLEDGE NAVIGATORS’ and ‘MENTORS’  My role in this Presentation is to ‘Knowledge Navigate’ you through the Ideas, Issues and Challenges of The Powerpoint and Accompanying e-Handout  The Aim is to Stimulate Your Thinking and in the Process To Provide You with Relevant Ideas That You can Use to discuss in this Conference and Later Back In Your Library  There is TOO MUCH CONTENT-Just As in Web Based Learning Environments  Print Based Handouts are environmentally unfriendly

11  WE HAVE INCREASED PUBLIC SCRUTINY IN MANY WAYS:- ◦ AS PUBLIC POLICY  e.g. “mySchool” and PROPOSED “myUniversity” / “my Hospital” Websites  National CURRICULUM and NAPLAN Testing ◦ AS A RECOGNITION OF IMPACT OF I.C.T. ON PUBLIC AND EMPLOYEE BEHAVIOUR(S)  WIKILEAKS / FACEBOOK / TWITTER / AVATARS /Second Life / Informal Rating Sites ◦ AS A RISK MANAGEMENT STRATEGY e.g. CSR ◦ AS LEGAL CONFORMANCE E.G. FOI / WHISTLEBLOWER Legislations ◦ OTHER? e.g. As Competitive Advantage? State vs Non State Schools (THE N.B.N. WILL ACCELERATE THIS TREND) PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1111

12  Great public interest and commentary on mySchool website  24/7 Scrutiny of Selected Politicians (and famous people)  “Ball by ball” Scrutiny of referees and officials in sport  24/7 Digital News channels and commentaries e.g. new ABC free to air news channel/ New Delhi C’wealth Games  Constant scrutiny of performance of hospitals/ medical practitioners e.g. Internet diagnoses  Web based social networking e.g. Facebook  Pressure on Legal Systems e.g. iPad as legal evidence / Use of social networking sites to find ‘natural’ parents  Confident (and Careless) Younger Users of I.C.T. PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1112

13  Australian College of Educators’ Journal:- Professional Educator 9,2 June 2010 has three articles evaluating / commenting on mySchool ◦ Margaret Clark CEO ACE:- “Evaluating MySchool” ◦ Ben Jensen:- “ What We Give Them” ◦ Jeremy Ludowyke:- “ Bursting the MySchool Bubble” PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1113

14  The Global Financial Crisis (GFC) Triggered By The Sub Prime Market Excesses Of The USA Home Mortgage Business Has Affected The Global Financial System And Created A Severe Recession Which Is Still Happening –especially overseas  Archbishop George Pell:- We Live In A Time Of Global Moral Crisis ( Easter 2009)  Our Public Morals And Ethics Have Been Found Wanting (e.g. GFC / NSW- Wollongong CC/ ICAC)  Australians emphasize “Rights” not “Responsibilities” PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 11 14

15  EVERYONE IS BEING PRESSURED TO WORK DIFFERENTLY  One View:- All Professional and Organizational providers are under pressure to change  Paranoia View:- They Are Not out Just To Get You, They Are Out To Get EVERYBODY PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1115

16  A Range Of Pressures Is Exerting Greater Scrutiny Of Organizational Activities- Including but more than Schools and their Libraries!  I.C.T. Based Pressures Are VERY STRONG  More Educated Employees / The General Public Have Different and Higher Expectations Of Customer Service And Employee Roles  School Leaders And Teachers Have To Work Differently ( SMARTER NOT HARDER)  Librarians Lead As Chief Information Officers, And Promote The Library As The ‘Driver’ Of I.C.T. Learning (THE iCentre) PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 11

17  Optimists View:- THAT IDEA IS PROMISING- HOW CAN I GET IT TO WORK IN MY SCHOOL?  Pessimists View:- I CAN IMMEDIATELY SEE ALL THE REASONS WHY THAT IDEA WON’T WORK! PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 11 17

18  BEWARE THE “IDEA ASSASSIN”  “ We Tried That Once at West OOBERGALABIE School in 1998 and it didn’t work then- SO IT DOESN’T WORK!”  The Idea Assassin delights in generalizing from the ‘Single Case Example’ PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 11 18

19 Watson (2008) Eco-exhaustion Conscious capitalism Resurgence in Individualised Hobbies and Making Things Robotics Rise of Industrial Provenance Use of Data Visualisation This will be closely related to:- – Data Mining Restoring Rhythm and Balance To Lifestyle Intimacy Industries Fantasy and Escape Lifestyles PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 11

20  Australia- a TWO PART ECONOMY:- ◦ BOOMING ( WA AND QLD) ◦ DOLDRUMS ( NSW, VIC)  CITY vs COUNTRY ATTITUDES AND LIFESTYLES  Digital Access RICH versus Digital Access POOR  POLITICAL UNCERTAINTY AT FEDERAL LEVEL WITH A MINORITY GOVT BASED PARLIAMENT ◦ LABOR- NATIONAL BROADBAND NETWORK (OPTICAL FIBRE)-EST $A 43BN ◦ SUDDEN EMPHASIS ON:- REGIONS / CARBON TAX / EUTHANASIA/ REFUGEES PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1120

21  Australians’ 10 Social “ Desires” ◦ To Be Taken Seriously ◦ To Have “My Place” ◦ Something To Believe In ◦ To Connect ◦ To Be Useful ◦ To Belong ◦ For More ◦ For Control ◦ For Something To Happen ◦ For Love Mackay H “What Makes Us Tick?” 2010 PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1121

22  For an example of an Australian small business initiative on how to use moodle go to:- http://lms.demo.microsolve.com.au. Microsolve is a Wollongong I.C.T. support business that offers an illustratory ‘moodle’ learning website for education e.g. high schools, as well as businesses to use PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1122

23  If You Started Work 25 Years Ago:- ◦ There were no CD’s (they were just about to be introduced) ◦ DVD’s hadn’t been invented ◦ Bob Hawke was PM and Neville Wran was NSW Premier ◦ No:- Laptops / I-Pods /mobile phones/ Digital Cameras/ Blackberrys/ iPhones/ Internet ( i.e. NO email/Facebook/Google/ Twitter) ◦ Coke was a drink / Grass was mown /Pot was something you cooked in/ Gay meant happy ◦ Letters /Telegrams/ Faxes/ Cheques/ Travellers’ Cheques/ Bankcard were main ways of communicating and paying ◦ Kindling was a kind of firewood PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 11 23

24  SELECTED STATISTICS FROM 1910 (USA) ◦ 8% OF HOMES HAD A TELEPHONE ◦ AVERAGE LIFE EXPECTANCY:- 47 YEARS ◦ 14% OF HOMES HAD BATHTUBS ◦ 95% OF BIRTHS WERE AT HOME AND 90% OF DOCTORS HAD NO COLLEGE LEVEL EDUCATION ◦ TALLEST STRUCTURE IN WORLD:- EIFFEL TOWER ◦ AVERAGE US WAGE WAS $200-$400 PER YEAR  COFFEE WAS.15C PER POUND PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1124

25  SENGE (2007):- The Over Riding Purpose of a School for the 21 C is to prepare students to survive in the 21 C 21 C issues:- Global Warming / Water / Environment/ Population Pressures/ Sustainability Teachers Need to Be “Futurists” We Need to Develop Learning as well as Teaching PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 11 25

26 1st Wave (agrarian) society- Technology related to SURVIVAL. 2nd Wave (industrial) society- Technology related to PRODUCTION KNOWLEDGE. 3rd Wave (information) society- Technology related to KNOWLEDGE. ( A Transparent Democracy is a later form of an Information Society) PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 11

27 ◦ The 'Information' Revolution - INITIALLY based on silicon chip developments; ◦ The 'Bio-Technologies' Revolution - based on DNA / RNA research; ◦ The 'Ecological' Revolution - understanding the inter-relatedness of long cycle systems. ◦ The ‘Advanced Materials’ Revolution’-replacing the Fe and C atom materials ◦ Nano / Micro Technology’ Revolution- development of “Micro World” processes PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 11

28 But-A BIG SLEEPER is the emerging knowledge that a Change in DNA/RNA occurs when we learn! PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1128

29  INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE  ELECTRICITY  TELEPHONY  COMPUTING  INTERNET  MOBILE TELEPHONY  BROADBAND ◦ Ref:- Tanner(2010) PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1129

30  Our Younger Staff/ Students Are PERCEIVED as Technically Very Competent / Advanced In I.C.T. Based Skills  Their Capabilities Need To Be Matched With Accompanying Growth In Moral And Ethical Skills PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 11 30

31 Issues for the Digital Generation:- 1. Copyright and protection of Intellectual property ( e.g. plagiarism) 2. Protection of Privacy ( in a world which is creating more e- scrutiny) 3. Protocols of learning online ( e.g. chat / discussion / notice boards) 4. Conduct / Protocols for e-communication (e.g. mobile phone protocols, sms, email, twitter and Facebook protocols)/ Avatar Behaviours e.g. in Second Life 5. Cyber-bullying 6. Protecting against e-predators ( Identity theft, grooming, paedophilia, avatar relationships) 7. Ethical use of information harvested on the web. (identity theft, plagiarism) 8. Building and upgrading digital competencies for learning ( A Google search usually provides large quantities of unsorted, low grade information) 9. Acceptance that digital learning has adult implications that can be triggered by individual behaviour (s) at any age- if you can access a web capable device 10. Acceptance of adult/ legal concerns about e.g. sexting / cyber bullying etc 11. DEVELOPING AND PROTECTING THEIR CYBER IMAGE AND IDENTITY PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 11 31

32  YOUNGER GENERATION LEARNERS AND TEACHERS ARE READY TO ADOPT AND USE TECHNOLOGY BASED LEARNING At The Same Time As  THEY ARE YEARNING FOR GUIDANCE ON “THE MEANING OF LIFE” AND “SEEKING VALUES” And They Are NOT as Technically Smart As We Assume They Are- see following PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 11 32

33  IMPROVING LEARNING CAPABILITIES With The Use Of Technology Is Not Sufficient  We Need To Improve The Capabilities Of Learners To Make ETHICAL AND MORAL DECISIONS About How To Use Their New Technology Based Capabilities  RELEVANCE To Current And Future Issues Is Extremely Important To Younger Generation Learners PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 11 33

34  BEFORE 1925 :- SENIORS  1926-1945:-BUILDERS  1946-1964:-BOOMERS  1965-1981:-GENERATION X  1982:-2000:-GENERATION Y  2001- ? :-GENERATION Z ( McCrindle is more conservative in his age ranges than other commentators) PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 11 34

35  GEN X ARE APPROX 28-42 YRS OLD  GEN Y ARE APPROX 11-27 YRS OLD  GEN Z ARE APPROX 10 YRS OLD OR YOUNGER PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 11 35

36  Marc Prensky (2005,9) makes a distinction between ‘Digital Immigrants’ (like us) and ‘Digital Natives’ (like our children).  Digital natives are ‘native speakers of technology, fluent in the digital language of computers, video games, and the Internet.  He calls those of us who were not born in this digital age as digital immigrants ‘who have adopted many aspects of the technology but just like those who learn another language later in life, we retain an ‘accent’ because we still have one foot in the past’. Comment This well meant observation has been used as the basis of the view:- “young people are expert at technology so they are OK on their own” PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 11 36

37 Research Based Australian Findings:-  The information literacy of young people has not improved with their greater access to technology  Young people have unsophisticated ‘mental maps’ of what the Internet is and do not appreciate that it is a collection of networked resources from different providers  Many young people do not find library sponsored resources intuitive and therefore prefer to use Google or Yahoo instead  As a result a search engine becomes their primary ‘brand’ that they associate with the internet-and they tend to adopt the tools their friends use PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1137

38  The speed of young people’s web searching means they have little time for evaluating for relevance, accuracy, or authority, of the obtained information  They move rapidly from source to source and spend little time reading or digesting the information, and have difficulty making relevant judgements about the pages they retrieve  Observations show that boys scan differently to girls, and that young people scan online pages very quickly (boys rely more on hyperlinks)  Young people have a poor understanding of their information needs, and therefore have difficulty in developing effective search strategies PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1138

39  They make very little use of advanced search facilities, and assume that search engines ‘understand’ their queries  If they obtain many search ‘hits’, young people find it difficult to assess the relevance of the materials presented and tend to save or print with little more than a glance at the materials Ref:-Rowlands and Nicholas (2008) cited in Lee and Finger 2010,145-146. PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1139

40  Help and Information Points:- See www.cybersmart.gov.au and www.acma.gov.auwww.cybersmart.gov.au www.acma.gov.au www.youthbeyondblue.com www.kidshelp.com.au KEIRA PROBUS.MHOUGH.10.1140

41  2.2M i.e. 79% of kids use the internet. Most common entry age 10-11 yrs but 8-9 to are frequent users  One in four have been cyber bullied 38% own up to bullying others  Usage Increases with age:- 16-17 to use 3 hrs 30min/day. Major uses 8-11 yo:- online gambling / 12-17yo:- social networking  76% have lied about age online /70% chatted with people they didn’t know  High risk behaviours:- 61% accepted friends they didn’t know 78% had personal info on sites KEIRA PROBUS.MHOUGH.10.1141

42  The most recent ABS Adult Literacy and Lifeskills Survey (based on data collected in 2006 but published in 2008):- ◦ Prose Literacy (46% of respondents were below satisfactory -and 26% of University graduates are below satisfactory) ◦ Document Literacy (47% of respondents below satisfactory) ◦ Numeracy Literacy (53% of respondents below satisfactory) ◦ Problem Solving Literacy (70% are below satisfactory) ◦ Health Literacy (60% are below satisfactory) PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1142

43 PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 11 SOME SOCIAL / TECHNOLOGY BASED TRENDS-1  Fewer Children + Greater Choices For Women  State Assuming Responsibility For Behaviour(s) With Accompanying Outcomes:- ◦ Diminishing Of Individual Freedom /Choice And ◦ Growth Of Litigation  Growing Awareness:- We Have All This Stuff and We Work Really Hard- IS THIS ALL THERE IS TO LIFE? 43

44 PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 11  Increased Emphasis On Consumers And Customer ‘Rights’ –the Serial Complainer  Car Based Societies Have Dispersed Activities And Facilities Beyond “Local”  Environmental Factors encouraging “Local” Again  Global Communications Mean We All Know About ‘Something Happened’ ◦ E.g. Australian Crime Rates are falling but perception / media image is:- “Its more dangerous out there” SOME SOCIAL / TECHNOLOGY BASED TRENDS-2 H 44

45 PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 11 OUTCOMES FOR SCHOOLS AND CHILDREN THE HELICOPTER PARENT FUSSING OVER ‘THEIR’ KID LESSENING OF SCHOOL –PARENT PARTNERSHIP MINDSETS CHILDREN’S PERSPECTIVES:- – MOST ADULTS ARE DANGEROUS – UNSUPERVISED PLAY IS DANGEROUS – RISK IS UNACCEPTABLE – ITS SOMEONE ELSE’S FAULT WHEN THINGS GO WRONG – I AM IMPORTANT AND MY NEEDS COME FIRST THESE ARE OFTEN THE FOUNDATIONS FOR CHILDREN’S USING / EXPLORING THE DIGITAL WORLD 45

46 McKenzie puzzles over a digital paradox. “How can it be," Stanford Professor Larry Cuban once asked:- "that so much school reform has taken place over the last century, yet schooling appears pretty much the same as it's always been?"  ‘A similar question might well be asked about the integration of new technologies into education: “How can it be that so much has been invested in equipping and wiring schools, yet few teachers are using the new technologies on a frequent and sustained basis to enhance student learning?” PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 11 46

47 INSIDE SCHOOLS  Limited Funding for I.C.T.  Slow Take-up and use By Older Generation who have retained control over I.C.T. usage  Suspicion of “ New Ways of Learning?” OUTSIDE SCHOOLS  Serious funding For Home / Community based I.C.T.  Rapid Take-up and use, with Older generation displaying much trust  Couldn’t care less about good or bad, I ‘m just “Doing It” PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1147

48 If We Are Not Careful- “WE ALL NEED LEARNING, BUT WE MAY NOT NEED SCHOOLS” PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 11 48

49  THE “GLOBAL PARADOX” (JOHN NAISBITT 1994)  THE WORLD IS GETTING MORE ‘GLOBAL’ AT THE SAME TIME AS  THE WORLD IS GETTING MORE ‘LOCAL PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1149

50  A School needs to Assist Students With-  “MAKING A LIVING” WHICH IS INCREASINGLY A GLOBAL ISSUE AT THE SAME TIME AS THEY NEED TO  “MAKING A LIFE” WHICH IS BECOMING A LOCAL ISSUE PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1150

51 A STARTING POINT  Our Students Are Technically Very Competent / Advanced In I.C.T. Based Skills – In Their Actions And Opinions Anyway  Their Capabilities Need To Be Matched With Accompanying Growth In Moral And Ethical Skills  Most Of The I.C.T. Capabilities And Investments Are Outside Of The School PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1151

52 WHEREVER POSSIBLE:- SPEAK WITH DATA PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1152

53  STAFF ARE THE KEY TO A SUCCESSFUL SCHOOL And Developing Their (Positive) Attitudes To I.C.T. Will Be A Key Success Factor (Concept 1) * Many Of The Educational Practices With Which Current Teachers And Schools Are Skilled In ARE NON I.C.T. BASED, And Were Derived To Meet The Needs Of A Previous Society, And Are Needed Less And Less By Current And Future Societies (Concept 2) * ‘Older’ Methods Of Leadership Are LESS AND LESS EFFECTIVE With Younger Generations And In Meeting The Needs Of A Post Industrial Society (Concept 3) * I.C.T. Based Learning Will Initially Be Based On Existing Practices But Over Time Will Create Interest And Capabilities To Move TO NEW WAYS OF WORKING IN SCHOOLS (Concept 4) * Younger Generations Are Extremely Comfortable And Confident With I.C.T. Based Learning, And Will WELCOME ITS GREATER USAGE In Schools And Learning (Concept 5) * Technology In Itself Is Not The Primary Issue-The Leadership Criterion Applied To Selecting and Using Technology Should Be:- “DOES IT ADD VALUE TO THE KEY PROCESSES AND OUTCOMES We Have Selected As Important For The Success Of This School?” (Concept 6) Effective Schools That Maximise Student Learning Are Those Schools That Focus On MAKING THEIR STAFF AS PROFESSIONAL AND CONFIDENT AS POSSIBLE IN THE VALUE ADDING USAGE OF I.C.T. (Concept 7) PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1153

54 THE LIBRARY NEEDS TO LEAD WITH OTHER TO:-  Enhancing The Learning Of Younger Generation Learners / Teachers And Parents  Developing Leadership Capabilities Based On Emotional And Moral Intelligence Understandings And Capabilities  Activating Partnerships Within And Between Schools And Their External And Internal Communities ◦ Partnerships On E.G. Myschool Data / Outstanding Teacher Data / Etc PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1154

55  Does it (I.C.T.) Add Value to the key Processes and Outcomes We Have Selected As Important for The Success Of The School?  Linked To:-  A Transparent Democracy is creating a requirement to identify the key processes and use, report and defend them in acceptable ways PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1155

56 SOME SCHOOL BASED PARTNERSHIPS AND ALLIANCES-1  HIGH SCHOOL –FEEDER PRIMARY PARTNERSHIPS ON ISSUES SUCH AS:- ◦ DEVELOPING LITERACY AND NUMERACY ◦ PROMOTING WELLNESS ◦ REDUCING OBESITY ◦ ATTITUDES TO LEARNING ◦ ETC (THESE ARE ANALOGOUS TO SUPPLY CHAIN PARTNERSHIPS IN INDUSTRY) PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1156

57  WITH DIGITAL NATIVES EG YOUNGER PARENTS TEACHERS STUDENTS ◦ Hough Pdf Chapters give many illustrations about specific approaches being recommended and used  WITH PARENTS ◦ EG LEARNING CONTRACTS  WITH STUDENTS ◦ SEE ADVICE FOLLOWING  WITH TECHNOLOGY ◦ TO REDUCE DRUDGERY ◦ TO RELEASE PEOPLE FOR HIGH LEVEL VALUE ADDING RELATIONSHIPS AND EXPERIENCES PROFE SSOR MICHA EL HOUG H.SEP 11 57

58  LIBRARIAN PARTNERING WITH SCHOOL EXECUTIVE TO LEAD ON I.C.T. BASED OPTIONS AND USAGES  LIBRARY AS iCENTRE PARTNERING WITH:- ◦ STAFF TO SUPPORT AND PROMOTE I.C.T. BASED LEARNING ◦ STUDENTS ◦ PARENTS PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1158

59  WITH EXTERNAL ORGANISATIONS ◦ EG REAL ESTATE AGENTS  WITH INDUSTRY TO PROVIDE DEDICATED SPECIALISED FEED RE SKILL DEMANDS  WITH PROFESSIONAL GROUPS TO PROVIDE DEDICATED LEARNERS  WITH UNIVERSITIES AND COLLEGES  WITH NOT FOR PROFIT COMMUNITY ORGANISATIONS (SCOUTS, GUIDES, HOBBY GROUPS) PROFE SSOR MICHA EL HOUG H.SEP 11 59

60  VIRTUAL ALLIANCES ◦ SCHOOL INTRANET BASED  DIGITAL PORTFOLIOS  LEARNER BASED LEARNING SYSTEMS ◦ WWW BASED  OPEN RELATIONSHIPS EG SISTER SCHOOLS  CLOSED RELATIONSHIPS EG CLASSROOM LEVEL LEARNING ◦ 3 RD PARTY SOFTWARE BASED e.g. Cloud Computing  2 ND LIFE  WIKIS PROFE SSOR MICHA EL HOUG H.SEP 11 60

61  Kids As Active Learners Needing Educational Passports  Teachers As Knowledge Navigators  Teachers As Mentors  Schools As ‘Tribalising’ Places PROFE SSOR MICHA EL HOUG H.SEP 11 61

62 PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 11 62 SOME SUGGESTED FEATURES OF KIDS AS LEARNING PARTNERS  CHANGE IS FROM ‘JOB TAKER’ TO ‘JOB MAKER’  3 ‘PASSPORTS’ REQUIRED:- ◦ ACADEMIC PASSPORTS ◦ VOCATIONAL PASSPORT ◦ ENTERPRISE PASSPORT (ELLYARD 1998)  HOUGH (20110:- ◦ CYBER PASSPORT  CO-WORKERS IN I.C.T.SUPPORT

63 PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1163 SOME CONCLUDING COMMENTS AND ADVICE

64 PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1164 “TRANSPARENT DEMOCRACY” ISSUES  WE MUST ASSUME:- MUCH GREATER SCRUTINY OF SCHOOLS/ TEACHING AND EDUCATION:- PROACTIVE:-  What Data / Information will be selected and promoted By YOU / By your LIBRARY/SCHOOL/SYSTEM/ PROFESSIONAL GROUP? REACTIVE:-  What Are Plans For Reacting To Others’ Use of Data and Information?  i.e. How YOUR SCHOOL LIBRARY promote / defend its professional and members’ interests through electronically accessible capabilities and strategies?

65 PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1165  What are the Important Processes and Outcomes That Contribute / Add Value To Our School? (See next slide)  What Are The Key Measures That Can Be Made Of These Important Ones?  How Can We Make them Useful To Us?  How Will We Select, Measure and Report? Some Action Focus Points

66 School Leaders should act to ensure that:-  Schools Make Much Greater Use of the Community Based I.C.T. Resources and develop networks of Networked Learning Communities that are based on active partnerships between the I.C.T. capabilities of the home and those of the school.  Focus on Developing STAFF Capabilities  School Librarians and School iCentres need to become central agencies in the staff development upgrades of staff, students and parents as the networked learning community emerges ◦ iCentres should promote adaptive staff development which must be developed using “targeting” techniques such as risk management applied to staff development choices, if the wide range of challenges and needs is to be met in upgrading teachers and leaders in our schools ◦ Librarians need to exert a leadership role in the ICT support of teachers and leaders by developing into the Chief Information Officer (CIO) Role- a role which will require them to remain current in the developing technologies and recommended options, to provide effective leadership in selecting wisely from I.C.T. options and usages, and be available to ‘project manage’ and ‘house’ the actual approaches developed  In a Transparent Democracy Environment :- SPEAK WITH DATA PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1166

67 PROFESSOR MICHAEL HOUGH.SEP 1167  MH Selected “Process” Indicators:- ◦ “ A school of choice” with waiting lists ◦ Closure would be strongly resisted by its community ◦ Graduates are sought after and prized ◦ Graduates support their strong alma mater ◦ Strong networks of influence ◦ Advice sought and taken by business, community ◦ Exemplar for the profession especially in use of iCentres ADDING VALUE
