David Feighan, the Director, Libraries and Learning Resources at Bialik College has kindly shared the following information:
I can confirm that the podcasts of the Bialik Learning Futures Forum, which we promised to share with the wider school library community, are now available.
The Learning Futures / Learning Spaces Forum focused on the changes to the physical and online learning spaces in Australian schools. The forum considered:
- How the new school libraries being built in Australia work within current and emerging education pedagogues.
- How the physical library and online library and learning spaces work together to best meet the needs of schools.
- The rise of learning / information commons in universities and schools, and
- The rise of social media platforms in education settings.
