Transcript of AASL Standards for the 21st Century Learner

Introduction to AASL
Standards for the 21st Century Learner References What are they? to the... Why are they important? Are you satisfied with your students' work?
Do your students seem to plagiarize a lot?
What elements are missing?
Do students seem stuck?
Is the problem class-wide, or do some specific students have difficulties?
What have you tried to address these issues? What happened?
(Farmer, 2002) How can they help your students? Learners will use skills, resources, and tools to:
inquire, think critically, and gain knowledge.
draw conclusions, make informed decisions, apply knowledge to new situations, and create new knowledge.
share knowledge and participate ethically and productive as members of our democratic society.
pursue personal and aesthetic growth.
(AASL, 2007) American Association of School Librarians (AASL). (2007) Standards for the 21st-Century Learner. Retrieved from http://www.ala.org/aasl/sites/ala.org.aasl/files/content/guidelinesandstandards/learningstandards/AASL_LearningStandards.pdf Each standard also includes a list of skills, dispositions in action, responsibilities and self-assessments that are necessary for students to demonstrate mastery. "they prepare students to be inquisitive learners who can use their wits to gain knowledge from whatever resource or emerging technology they encounter" (Franklin & Stephens, 2009) "Information literacy is not a simple list of competencies. It reflects a profound, sometimes "messy" set of skills, knowledge and attitude that permeates the entire curriculum and operations of educational institutions." (Farmer, 2002) Because we have moved from the industrial age information age Workers in the 21st century will need to be innovative thinkers with strong problem-solving and communication skills. They will need to work cooperatively, adapt quickly, use information creatively and ethically, and be capable of self-assessment. (Stephens & Franklin, 2009) "The nature of instruction changes when teachers and library media specialists collaborate to include information literacy skills in lesson plans and activities.
The skills-oriented lessons can be replaced by more integrated and problem-based activities...students are more engaged" (Wolf, 2004) Industrial Age - http://www.flickr.com/photos/jasonholmberg/3641773767/sizes/s/ Information Age - http://www.flickr.com/photos/simplicissimus/3956516515/sizes/s/ Franklin P, Stephens C.
