Seth Godin in his blog post on the future of the library states that: "What we need to spend the money on are leaders, sherpas and teachers who will push everyone from kids to seniors to get very aggressive in finding and using information and in connecting with and leading others."
This sounds to me very much like the teach them "at the point of need" method. Success rates rise significantly when people have a need and are ready to learn. In our schools Teacher Librarians often have the opportunity to fill this role for students and staff alike, but need to be given "time" to undertake this vital task.
What do you think?
