Teacher Librarians are important

Brilliant post from Judy O'Connell about the importance of teacher librarians.
"The importance of the teacher librarian is intrinsically linked to effective and responsive information curation and dissemination in distributed environments within and beyond the school. Use of Web 2.0 tools has become embedded in good practice, and information curation has extended beyond the library catalogue to library and school information management systems for bibliographic and media resources, and various organizational tools that reside beyond the school in web environments, such as Libguides, Diigo, Live Binders, wiki, Delicious, Google tools, RSS, media tools, netvibes, iGoogle, and many more."

Having a good teacher or professor these days is tough. Teachers are also a problem in most education system where there is a great need for teachers in the community. The best way to at least solve this problem is the existence of today's online training courses and professional education that is brought online via interactive education slide shows and presentation that is accredited by education authorities.
