Alignment to Standards

Element Ib: Instructional technology facilitators lead an instructional technology program that supports 21st Century teaching and learning.
Vision for School Library Media Coordinators: School library media coordinators help make the content engaging and meaningful to students’ lives as they support teachers and facilitate the integration of curriculum and related projects across disciplines. In the school and the media center, school library media coordinators facilitate instruction, encouraging all students to use 21st Century skills to discover how to learn, innovate, collaborate, and communicate their ideas. They serve as facilitators of information skills development through the provision of professional development, coaching, mentoring, and co-teaching activities. Their work includes supporting the development of authentic and structured assessment strategies to assure that students demonstrate understanding of the content taught and ability to apply the skills they have learned. School library media coordinators demonstrate the value of lifelong learning and instill a love of reading and learning in the students with whom they come into contact.
