Libraries Supporting Teacher Collaboration, Student Voice and School Design

This two-day statewide library conference is sponsored by the Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE), Office of Curriculum and Instructional Design, School Library Services, in partnership with the Pacific Literacy Consortium.

The purpose of the conference is to equip HIDOE school library staff with tools, strategies and resources that focus on the three high impact strategies of teacher collaboration, student voice and school design to transform school library programs.

Professional development, training and program planning opportunities that grow school library staff knowledge and skills that best support information literacy, pre-k literacy skills, early literacy skills, brain-based learning, and computer science will be provided. Library professional development is aligned to the American Association for School Librarians (AASL) 2017 National School Library Standards and Future Ready Librarians Framework.

For the last 5 years Bess Press has been developing an online learning platform for Hawaiian and Pacific Island Studies. The purpose of this platform is to be utilized as a resource connecting foundational learning concepts with culturally relevant inquiry and experiences. This platform enables educators to access all core curriculum materials in one place and connect to other media resources such as primary source documents, films, journal/news blogs, dictionaries, and archival content. Materials are categorized on theme/subject such as ancient Hawaiʻi, Hawaiian monarchy, modern Hawaiʻi, Polynesia, Micronesia, etc. This presentation will also include platform content editors and provide a demonstration on access and use.
