Standards from AASL and ISTE with added Survey Benefit
I had an excellent idea for ALL Georgia School Library Media Specialists to become familiar with the current national standards. Please forward this to ALL Georgia School Library Media Specialists that are in your contact list.
Step One: Take the following survey:
This survey lists the AASL Standards and asks you to think about your level of endorsement and implementation.
The AASL Standards for the 21st Century Learner (2007) are found at the following link:
http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/aasl/guidelinesandstandards/learningstandards/standards.cfm (if you have taken the survey—you have read through them once)
Step Two: Read the National Educational Technology Standards for Students (2007) and Teachers (2008):
Step Three: Check out the GLMA Website for the Information Literacy Checklists. Yes, they are outdated, but look at Step Four.
Step Four: Participate in the GLMA Summer Institute, read the GLMA Blog, stay involved as our profession adapts to a new learning landscape.

Cawood Cornelius, Principal Investigator from the University of Alabama, is conducting a research study called Survey of School Library Media Specialists’ Perceptions of the AASL Standards for the 21st Century Learner. He wishes to find out how the AASL Standards for the 21st Century Learner (2007) is perceived by school level library media specialists including their level of endorsement and level of implementation.
Taking part in this research study is completely voluntary. Taking part in this research study involves completing a web survey that will take about 30 minutes. This survey contains questions about the level of endorsement and implementation of the beliefs and standards contained AASL Standards for the 21st Century Learner (2007).
