How can teachers form partnerships with their local public libraries?

Written by Jeff Gerlach on Friday, 20 June 2014.

Blended learning teachers are creating learning environments that utilize online tools to expand when and where students are able to learn. If the expectation is for students to participate in this expanded capacity, they will need to have adequate resources to serve these needs.

Community libraries can provide a safe environment, computers with internet access and other digital resources to support blended learning away from the classroom.

We visited with Erin Brzozowski of the Capital Area District library to discuss digital literacy support and how teachers can develop partnerships with their local librarians to support student learning. You can watch our conversation below.

How can we teach our students how to seek out community resources to support learning outside of school hours?
