Leading the Learning Revolution

Educators are increasingly using new media and digital technologies to teach and engage their 21st century students. Reading, writing, gaming, trans-media, immersive worlds, augmented reality, and Web 3.0 are all part of the new digital frontiers. Whether it’s science or science fiction, Alice in Wonderland or Angry Birds, the dynamics of this new information ecology are transforming learning experiences in our schools. We can lead this learning revolution by ensuring that our library and the learning ecology we create can harness these new environments. How we do this, will determine our success and the future relevance and importance of our school libraries.

In many cases, it means immersing players in simulated worlds or environments where their virtual decisions are the basis for game play.” Will Richardson
