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.

"Students spend many hours at school so making their learning meaningful and worthwhile supports their overall wellbeing and sense of belonging. How does your library program encourage students to give their opinions, participate in the decision making process, and design their own learning experiences?

In this session, participants will learn about the importance of student voice and how to nurture it. Hear examples from Aina Haina Elementary School on how to design activities for students to provide feedback, make decisions, and take action.

*Note: This was a breakout session at the HASL 2019 Spring Conference."
