The PYP librarian roles in PYP is nurturing internationally-minded, lifelong learners and readers. Those roles are expanded more than either collection maintenance and development or circulation & reference service.
Cikal Baca-Baca is how we called our library. The transformation of library function has challenged to the librarians because there were paradigm shift to move up from a conventional library to 21st Century Library.
Our library programs have been developing progressively by collaborating to Unit of Inquiry and integrated to some subjects. Those programs are happened as a valid result of working together with cross level teachers to support any teaching and learning process at school. There are two activities students could learn and explore ; Library and computer visits for learning library and research skills . Those visits are the students gain skills about how to get information from any platform of paperback or online. The students hopefully could differentiate which information is credible, relevant, reliable and current or if it is phony and bias. Those skills are fundamentals for independent learners anywhere they are whether it is for learning or pleasure.
The spread of powerful mobile devices has put the World Wide Web at our fingertips. So, what changes of the horizon for…LIBRARY OF THE FUTURE. Students explore how the internet could give them amazing ways to collaborate with other people and subjects. However they do not realize about how much important of internet safety is as a lead to be digital citizenship. Being a good digital citizen is more than knowing their way around the web. It is about connecting and collaborating in ways they did not even know were possible and also give credits any information by citing sources.
The library of 21st provides a welcoming space to collaborate, creative, explore, innovate among students, teachers and community by bringing physical and digital learning.
