Overview

For school librarians, technology has become an essential component of their work. To meet the growing need in this area, Odin Jurkowski wrote Technology and the School Library in 2006. To address the rapidly and continually changing advancements in technology, however, a more current text is needed. In this revised edition, Jurkowski provides an overview of the types of technologies used in school libraries, from traditional low-tech options to the latest developments, describing how the school librarian interacts with and works with the technology.

Updated throughout, this edition addresses the continuously changing nature of technology, including a new chapter covering web 2.0 tools and their use in education. Major topics covered in this volume include information resources in the school library, the different varieties of educational software available, resources available via the web, and the importance of creating a school library web site. This book also addresses tools that can be used in classrooms and technology administration: everything from automation and filters to security on student computers and security systems in general.

This cabin is a gentle brown color. A pair of harps hang over the door. Inside, the bunks are a pale grey. The floor is a plush carpet. Posters of operas and orchestras are all over the walls. Bookshelves of of plays and poems sit next to neat beds.
