International Literacy Day

ILD15International Literacy Day, traditionally observed annually on September 8, focuses attention on worldwide literacy needs. According the the UN, “Education brings   sustainability to all the development goals, and literacy is the foundation of   all learning. It provides individuals with the skills to understand the world   and shape it, to participate in democratic processes and have a voice, and also   to strengthen their cultural identity.”

Twitter

Are you on Twitter yet?  It isn’t just celebrities telling us what they had for lunch, or friends telling us about their bodily functions. The educational possibilities for Twitter are tremendous. Just today we retweeted items related to language, games, photography, Vancouver history, iPads, teaching, Drop Everything and Read, The Hobbit, Martin Luther King Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement, comics, libraries, flags, school libraries, public libraries, authors, literacy, our writing contest, and more.  We share about what we are doing in the school library learning commons, we share about what is happening in the school, we share about the things our kids are learning in classes, and we share about all sorts of things.
