The Horizons Report and Horizons Report: K-12 Edition is, as they say, a must read for those of us in the field of education. These reports are research based, highly informative and confirm what we are seeing on a daily basis in our schools. They document what is imperative we do to prepare our student populations for being active, creative and contributing members of society.
All the other articles that speak to the trends in technology and 2.0 applications challenge librarians as educators to rethink how their physical space, "collections", and use of technology will be reflected in their lessons that are taught to their student populations, in collaboration with their staffs and in the planning and management of their facilities. The best way to "teach" is by example. That is my goal.
