Product description


"This should be added to everyone’s professional bookshelf and their library collections for others to access. More than one would be preferable in a school library so that those keen staff members who have been inspired by their teachers can take it, digest it and use it." - Access "...well laid out and clearly written...a valuable resource...I would recommend this book to librarians, teachers and school managers who want to ensure their students have the information skills they will need in today's society." (New Library World)

"Each well-structured chapter follows the same format stating clearly its scope, with individual introductions followed by helpful headings, and completed with conclusions re-emphasising the coverage, supported by lists of references. There is of course a comprehensive index, and the chapter references are compiled together to form the bibliography, which in itself makes for an interesting is a book that should be passed around the staffroom to various members whether they are practitioners and teachers or those deciding on the curriculum content." (eLucidate)

"Herring teaches the teacher and the librarian about the continuing importance of strengthening the information literacy skills of all students whilst continuing to strengthen their own. He includes useful suggestions for in-service training, does not expect teachers to implement changes all at once, but encourages and persuades, lending a helping hand with plenty of excellent references, resources and ideas. This book will soon become an indispensable tool for teachers, teacher librarians and librarians alike. Web proficiency and information literacy are skills that we cannot afford to ignore, both as a society and as those responsible for the teaching of young people. Herring provides a much needed guide to ensuring that we continue to do our very best to remain web and technology savvy amid the process of strengthening the education of young people."
(Library Review)

"This book is packed with brief but enlightening case studies; the perfect learning tool for any busy teacher or teacher librarian. It is visually attractive with plenty of screen shots enabling the reader to see at a glance the layout or appearance of a lesson plan, a web page and other useful materials. Herring outlines for the librarian and the teacher the continuing importance of strengthening the information literacy skills of students whilst at the same time strengthening their own. He includes useful suggestions for in-service training but does not expect teachers to implement changes all at once. He encourages and persuades, providing help via plenty of excellent references, resources and ideas. Herring’s book is an ideal resource for teachers and teacher librarians, a useful and accessible tool, a quick guide to the best use of emerging technologies in a school environment."
(Journal of Information Literacy)
