At SEK-Qatar Library we aim to prepare our Learners to be successful users of information, become lifelong readers, natural inquirers and build Academic Integrity.
the past years, Libraries have transformed. What used to be a place
focused on reading, is now a place to Research, CODE, Make, build Art
Appreciation from Illustrators, a place where we learn how to be great
Digital Citizens, a place to learn about respecting other's Intellectual
Property, learning about our roles as Creators and using technology
tools in our learning.
Transliterate readers can have the ability to read, write and interact across a range of platforms, tools, media including social networks.
Building Digital Citizenship!
Digital Citizens demonstrate responsible use of technology: computers, the Internet, and digital devices when engaging with society on any level, as well as keeping themselves and their information secure. Digital Citizenship is crucial for our 21st Century Learners.
Researchers & Academic Honesty!
Being Academically Honest, helps us respect others intellectual property and give credit where credit is due. This is an important part of Exhibition, Personal Project, Extended and Essay and other academic assignments. From 4th grade to 12th grade we will be working on citing by having lessons with the little ones to workshops with the DP students. Students can also request meetings and contact me via email or Teams for Citing and research needs.
Library centers: During Blended Learning this will be ?Library Choice
Board?. A choice board provides learners with different activities to
expand their learning based on their interest. We will participate in
coding, art (to appreciate the illustrator?s role), use technology to
expand and present our learning. Library centers allow for our learners
to have agency in their learning. It looks like playing because they
are, and they are learning as well.
Our younger readers will play, enjoy the magic of read-Alouds and learn
all about book care. They will understand that some books share
information while others are just to enjoy.
MYP and DP
students will dive deeper into Academic Honesty and Research.
Identifying Primary Sources and Secondary sources of information, with
Servicing our students?
PYP Learners have Library lessons, or Story time once a week. For the MYP and DP program I collaborate with Teachers and will visit classroom to provide workshops for our learners. We will also be looking at books in order to increase reading for pleasure in the upper grades.
The library is a place for books and more.
Stay tuned and enjoy the new learning experiences our readers will have at the SEK Library.
