Engaging your patrons

Re-thinking educational resources

This presentation at TED by PennState’s –  Ali Carr-Chellman - provides excellent insight for engaging potential patrons by rethinking the dynamics of education and information delivery. Highly recommended viewing for any children’s / young adult / reference librarians and library administrators seeking ways of making their collections and resources more viable.

How can this idea of engaging an alienated population be implemented in libraries? 

What methods that mirror these concepts are currently being employed?

  1. i’ve read recently a lot of info advocating all boy and all girl classrooms based on the fact that boys learn differently than girls in the 1st through 6th grades. there is also a ton of evidence through research that boys and girls brains develop at different rates and in different ways.
    i remember those boys who couldn’t sit still in grade school and got in trouble. they were dropped out by high school.
