Subject: [aaslaffils] "School Libraries Count!"
AASL has just launched our third year of the longitudinal study "School
Libraries Count!" All K-12 schools, public and private, are invited to
participate on a voluntary basis. Past participant's continued involvement
is crucial when examining trends over time, as well as new participants so
that an accurate reflection of the US educational demographics are
Additional questions were added to last years study that focused on the use
of social networking in the classroom. Findings showed that the majority of
public and private schools were incorporating social networking tools into
the classroom to aid in collaborative learning. This year's study will
include additional questions regarding English Language Learners (ELLs) and
resources made available to them through school library media programs.
The number of participants between years one and two of the survey almost
doubled, in large part due to the collective efforts of AASL volunteers
getting the word out, and we hope to double again in 2009.
Please spread the word now! Post to your website, listservs and blogs! The
survey may be accessed directly at http://www.aaslsurvey.org
<http://www.aaslsurvey.org/> . The last day to complete the survey is March
Thank you for your support.
