  • Volume 31 Issue 4 - Design thinking, social entrepreneurship and
           innovation at the forefront of Pimpama State Secondary College
    • Abstract: Allen, Tom; Jefford, Adam
      Those of us who were fortunate to have had the opportunity to attend school will probably remember a key 'aha' moment: perhaps a conversation with a specific teacher, maybe a classroom experience that led to a moment of clarity, or for a lucky few, an experience that shaped their life and personal journey.

  • Volume 31 Issue 4 - Inquiry-based learning: It matters for life
    • Abstract: Marks, Sue
      What approaches to learning most effectively prepare students for life beyond school' How might teachers design learning experiences that engage, enrich and equip students, so that they want to learn, both at school and for the rest of their lives' These are fundamental questions for educators, and the answers to them ought to shape their purposes, programming and pedagogy.

  • Volume 31 Issue 4 - Survey on extra duties
    • Abstract: Gray, Martin
      Teacher librarians (TLs) are in a job dissimilar to any other sta. in their school. Often no regular classes, or only seeing classes once a week, especially in high school. Often no one else in the same role or department. Sometimes there is a sentiment that TLs are not part of the teaching sta. or carrying their weight. At the same time, though, this dissimilarity lends the TL role to be better suited to filling certain jobs in a school, either because of their different time stresses or permanent physical location. These extracurricular duties often appear in the email signatures of TLs on the list serves. Distance education coordinators, year advisors, Premier's Reading Challenge managers. All these extracurricular roles would indeed suggest that TLs are deeply involved in the work of their schools, often in leading roles. I was interested to find out how common it was for TLs to do extra roles, and if there were certain roles which were taken up more than others.

    • Abstract: Hill, Ailsa
      In Tasmania, we are fortunate to have an active membership that offers monthly ASLA meetings for members and other interested professionals and paraprofessionals. During these meetings we have had some amazing sessions run by extremely talented locals, not all of whom are directly involved with school libraries.

  • Volume 31 Issue 4 - Meet your board
    • Abstract: Elliott, Claire
      I began my teaching career in the classroom and have worked in England, the UAE and Qatar. After five years of classroom teaching I was ready for another challenge so enrolled at Charles Sturt University (CSU) to get my Master of Education (Teacher Librarianship). After completing the degree, I worked as a teacher librarian at a large international school in Dubai. While there, I began my Master of Education (International Education), to find out more about the international education system and its rapid growth and success globally. My final project looked at the impact of globalisation on cultural identity and role of literature in fostering intercultural understanding and the significance of the teacher librarian to ensure the collection meets the needs of the community and the impact the collection can have on individuals within the school community. Working internationally has allowed me to meet teacher librarians from other countries and identify that many of the challenges facing Australian teacher librarians are also experienced in the States, Canada and Europe. It has also made me appreciate that in Australia we have a culture of literature and libraries, even though it is under threat; it is a better situation than in some countries.

  • Volume 31 Issue 4 - Fellow and Associate Fellow of the Australian School
           Library Association
    • Abstract: Williams, Isobel
      Members from all over Australia make vital contributions to ASLA in so many different ways at both the local and national levels. Without these contributions, the Association would find it much more diffcult to function and provide the range of benefits to its members. One way of recognising and celebrating these contributions is to formalise an award for long-standing members who contribute in such ways as: attending ASLA professional learning (webinars, conferences or workshops), helping to organise professional learning, writing articles for 'ACCESS', holding positions on project teams or the Board or making other contributions as outlined in the nomination form.

    • Abstract: Horvath, Jared Cooney

  • Volume 31 Issue 4 - School libraries as the third place
    • Abstract: Gray, Martin
      School libraries hold a unique position. They are neither really a classroom nor a playground. It is something else; a space which can be used both for relaxation like a playground, or for work, like a classroom. However, the relaxation is not physical or boisterous, as it would be outside, and the study is self-directed, study which can happen when the students want, with what they want, rather than when their timetable says so. The library also serves as a meeting place and safe haven, open to anyone in the school, for whatever need, provided they are respectful of others. A school library can act as a third place within a school.

  • Volume 31 Issue 4 - Wellbeing through picture books
    • Abstract: Tunks, Morag
      The recently released 'Second Australian Child and Adolescent Survey of Mental Health and Well-Being' (2015) highlighted the alarming statistics related to youth selfharm, suicide and depression rates. Given these worrying statistics, student wellbeing has become an increased focus for educational institutions. In a current analysis of national curriculum frameworks across 37 Organisation for Economic Development (OECD, 2015) countries, 72% of countries now consider student wellbeing as an important part of the learning curriculum.

  • Volume 31 Issue 3 - Creating a community of readers
    • Abstract: Laretive, Josephine
      Creating a community of readers highlights and explores aspects of the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) and the Australian School Library Association (ASLA) Standards of Professional Excellence for Teacher Librarians. The Standards comprise three facets: Professional Knowledge, Professional Practice and Professional Commitment. Within each of these, the focus and importance of reading is prevalent; although detailed separately, reading is interrelated. This article explores the importance of reading as promoted by the Standards, insight from research, and practical tips from engagement with reading and literature-based pedagogy in the F-6 context. Reference to the importance of reading for adolescents is also referred to. The Standards of Professional Excellence for Teacher Librarians aim to enrich teacher librarians' professional engagement and develop student learning outcomes. The Standards have been an essential companion to my experience and have assisted greatly with guidance and planning, promoting and strengthening the service of the library, and have provoked professional learning and connections.

    • Abstract: Hill, Ailsa
      This year the Australian School Library Association (ASLA) reinstated the Australian Teacher Librarian of the Year as a biennial award. After a hiatus of five years, the ASLA Awards' team updated the award and proceeded to call for nominations for the Australian Teacher Librarian of the Year, followed by an o.cial judging process, with three judges external to the Board. After a period of consultation, the judges make their recommendation to the Board, which is then tasked with ratifying the judges' decision.

    • Abstract: Jenkinson, Philip
      The importance of a social media presence may be well accepted, but many overlook a crucial element of successful engagement. With 20 per cent of the Australian population having some form of disability, and 5 per cent more with English as a second language, accessibility and inclusion is a crucial consideration when seeking to engage with sta , parents and students of all ages.

  • Volume 31 Issue 2 - Principal outlooks in STEM in some Australian primary
           schools: Views, concerns and possible solutions
    • Abstract: Hunter, Jane
      International concerns for advancing a school-level focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) have intensified in recent years and show few signs of abating. Ensuring there are full-time jobs for young people with these qualifications will be a future challenge. The call to action for teachers in schools to play their part in the STEM agenda has picked up across Australia where resources, industry and teacher education in universities are ensuring more young people are given opportunities to engage in interactive, experiential and 'hands-on learning' in the four STEM disciplines. Some schools prefer an emphasis on STEAM where the Arts and the critical role of communication and the humanities are foregrounded. The role of school libraries and librarians as expert information scientists is also crucial in the plan, as access to reliable information in the project-based learning (PBL) approaches used by students in real-world STEM tasks that span a whole school term are common.

      In this article, we look at how coding and humanoid robotics have become a mandatory inclusion in education and libraries through the STEM and STEAM curricula; as well as the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) and the Australian School Library Association (ASLA) through their statements of purpose. In doing so, we explore innovation, and how NAO, a humanoid robot, is helping children and adults learn coding and humanoid robotics in highly engaging and fun ways that are inspiring participation from all ages. We explore some case studies of NAO being utilised in a school, a public library and a children's hospital.

      I was a closet 'reluctant reader' when I was at school. Back in Year 10, at my crusty public school in Gippsland, that meant I quietly refused to read John Steinbeck's 'Of Mice and Men' for English. I got an A for the essay by listening to the discussions and collecting a few notes. I still haven't read it. Sometimes when I tell that story to students they smile and nod.

      When I was a kid, I loved to draw. I liked writing stories as well, but drawing was more magical, and it was also much cooler, in a nerdy kind of way. Writing was really schoolwork. Nobody wanted to be caught doing schoolwork in their free time. I sometimes wrote little stories in secret, but in school I'd write the kind of thing I thought the teacher wanted, and it would come back with corrections and marks and comments. Drawing was different. It was always just for fun. Drawings never got handed in and corrected. Drawings could be funny, clever, subversive, scratched into the margins of maths books, or passed secretly around the classroom.

To fight that fight, I am committed to using every tool in the toolbox, and I have found that having humour in our classrooms and having funny books on our shelves are some of the most powerful tools available.

      So, what's so funny about the imagination' If we give students the chance, they'll show us that there are many answers to that question. They'll probably also make us laugh a lot along the way.

    • Abstract: Doyle, Elaine
      Persuasive writing plays a big part in the English curriculum. Throughout their school life, students write many persuasive pieces. Persuasive writing (and narrative writing) are such important skills. There is no point in writing a collection of garbled words with no structure or purpose. At the other end of the scale the lifeless personality of a 'shopping list'-style piece that skims across the top of many points is equally ineffective. Persuasive writing can motivate, inspire, sell an idea or product; it can move the reader into thoughts beyond their realm of experience. Students are measured and schools compared in persuasive writing through NAPLAN.

  • Volume 30 Issue 4 - I am not Plato ... but Plato's not here right now
    • Abstract: Monteath, Andrea
      I flatter myself but, as a middle-aged woman, I like to think that I have a few things in common with Plato. Specifically, we share a love of loose clothing, open-toed sandals, and the desire to nudge socio-political ideologies in the direction that we think is best. You see, Plato tinkered with the idea that, just because we have a system that works well enough, doesn't mean we should stop striving towards a model that works even better. Around 350BCE, he wrote The Republic, a sort of essay tucked inside a story, about his idea of the perfect society. To me, it resembles a modern, sci-phi dystopia - bleak and unforgiving. Essentially, his model implies that, as a citizen, you should, 'Stay in your designated lane, and do your job'. Plato's vision left little wiggle-room for artists or - more personally disturbing - for writers. Left-leaning centrists need not apply. I'm certain I would sink straight to the bottom of a society like that and, yet, I sense a need for change. Perhaps not Plato's kind, but definitely some kind. So, like every personal crusade I imagine from the safety of my study, I begin by taking stock of what we have. I go for a walk and observe the world. I read a little, watch a few videos, Google a bit, and this is what I see. It's my snapshot of the challenges ahead. Not all of them, of course (I'm not that conscientious), but a few of the bigger ones. I label these findings 'challenges' - these heroically elephantine tasks our children, and grandchildren, will have to conquer - because I'm an optimist.

      School libraries have always been at the forefront of educational technology use within Australia.

When interactive whiteboards or iPad pools start- ed to appear, they were often first placed in libraries, just as photocopiers or micro- fiche viewers had been decades before. The image of the school library as only full of books is not just out of date, it was probably never accurate at all.

    • Abstract: Alderman, Belle; Milne, Trish
      The National Centre for Australian Children's Literature is the nation's most comprehensive collection of material relating to Australian children's literature. Begun as the inspiration of one woman, Lu Rees, in 1974, the collection is now valued at over nine million dollars. It has a firm reputation among researchers, academics, teachers, students, bibliographers, librarians and the general public and forms a significant part of the nation's cultural heritage.

      The Centre's mission is not just to collect, document and preserve the collection. Our aim is to share it with as many people as possible through our outreach activities. Most importantly, we seek to share it with teachers and teacher librarians whose task it is to inspire new generations of children.

      This article introduces readers to the collection and to our activities and events. We invite readers to share our vision for the future and join with us in achieving a national centre of Australian children's literature for posterity.

    • Abstract: Cohen, William
      The role of fiction in the school library collection is generally limited to reading for pleasure or the use of a narrow range of texts for English. This article argues that the steampunk genre - a fusion of Victorian social mores with period science fiction - is ideal for inclusion in teaching subject- specific content, cross-curriculum priorities and examining gender roles in modern and historical society. A range of written, visual and digital texts is offered as examples, and the role of the teacher librarian is considered as a promoter of such genres and advocate for involving the school community.

In Australia, the annual Inky Awards, and the new Inky Awards Ambassador Program, offer teachers and students a way to bring this innovation into their English classrooms.

      Bullying is an unfortunate reality in most schools, and with the rise of social media, it doesn't stop in the schoolyard. There is a way schools can bring awareness and demonstrate intolerance to bullying with a new free technology, reword, that has recently launched in Australia. reword can help schools educate students on more effective and positive ways to communicate with each other online. We don't want to think of any of our students as bullies. But we can't control everything they do or say online, and often they don't even realise that what they're typing could be hurtful.

  • Volume 30 Issue 1 - Two cheers for STEM; three cheers for creativity
    • Abstract: McWilliam, Erica; Taylor, Peter G
      Productivity means Innovation means STEM. That premise is looking increasingly irrefutable when it comes to building this nation's future and the employability skills of the next generation. In other words, more investment in, and engagement with, science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education in schools and universities will deliver both career opportunities for individuals and a secure economic future for the nation.

  • Volume 30 Issue 1 - Crossing literacy and informed learning boundaries
           with Manga
    • Abstract: Smeaton, Kathleen; Maybee, Clarence; Bruce, Christine; Hughes, Hilary
      This research investigated high school students' experiences of informed learning in a literacy development workshop. It was conducted in the library of an Australian high school with a low socio-economic population. Building upon students' fascination with Manga fiction and artwork, the workshop was part of a larger university - community engagement project, Crossing Boundaries with Reading, which aimed to address widespread literacy challenges at the school.

      The paper first provides a brief literature review that introduces the concept of informed learning, or the experience of using information to learn. In practice, informed learning fosters simultaneous learning about using information and learning about a topic. Thus, information is a transformative force that extends beyond functional information literacy skills. Then the paper outlines the phenomenographic methodology used in this study, the workshop context and the research participants. The findings reveal three different ways that students experienced the workshop: as an art lesson; as a life lesson; and as an informed learning lesson. The discussion highlights the power of informed learning as a holistic approach to information literacy education.

      The study's findings are significant as students from low socio-economic backgrounds are often at risk of experiencing disadvantage throughout their lives if they do not develop a range of literacies including the ability to use information effectively. Responding to this problem, the paper provides an empirically based example of informed learning to support further research and develop professional practice. While the research context is limited to one high school library, the findings are of potential value for teacher librarians, educators and information professionals elsewhere.

      We're all familiar with the old adage that reminds us that with books - as with many other things in life - appearances aren't everything and it is what's on the inside that counts.
