Joyce Valenza is the teacher librarian at Springfield Township High School in Philadelphia. She says;
This is the best time in history to be a teacher librarian. Major shifts in our information and communication landscapes present new opportunities for librarians to teach and lead in areas that were always considered part of their role, helping learners of all ages effectively use, manage, evaluate, organize and communicate information, and to love reading in its glorious new variety.
Dr Valenza’s innovative and practical advice to guide learners in new and emerging information and communications landscapes has received global attention and acclaim across the international education community.
