Global e-literacy: leading the reinvention
of learning: a conference for teacher-librarians and
school leaders

Presented by the
School Library Association of Victoria

Friday, 27 July 2012

8.45 am to 3.15

MCG Dining Room,




This conference
will build on the inspiration offered by Joyce Valenza and the Department of
Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD) FUSE projects and showcase
how teacher-librarians are using emerging technologies to enhance student
learning. The program will concentrate on links to the Australian curriculum,
learning and evidence-based practice with practical applications to empower
teacher librarians to make the most of their roles and highlight the value of
their e-literacy skills and knowledge to the entire school community.


The morning will
commence with a keynote presentation from Judy O’Connell, a recognised expert
in using Web 2.0 technology in school libraries. Judy will examine curation and
information options for schools and school libraries, providing insight into
the potential role of teacher-librarians in developing e-literacy skills. Jenny
Luca will follow and explore the changing learning environment from a student’s
point of view. This will include; looking at the choices students have in
individual learning outcomes; new ways of learning and opportunities for us to
integrate into our teaching practice.


The afternoon
panel will showcase the impact that new technologies can have on our roles and
libraries. Our panellists will highlight how using Web 2.0 tools can change
what and how we operate and the impact this has on students’ learning right
here in Victoria. “Explore and expand your own e-learning” session
before lunch is an exciting opportunity for hands-on experience. It is designed
to allow participants to explore the use of a specific online resource or
application through demonstration and discussion with peers. Follow personal
interests and venture into new learning on your own device while at the conference.


Cecilie Murray
will conclude the day, reflecting on and bringing together the ideas, concepts
and perspectives of how libraries and teacher-librarians can energise learners
through using “anytime anywhere” resources. She will summarise the day’s
learnings and predictions in view of the reinvention of learning beyond 2013
and the introduction of the national curriculum.
