About Media Specialist
Who are media specialists and why do we need them?
Information is everywhere..........in the books in our library, in our reference section, and on the computer through online databases and websites.
A media specialist helps students develop the skills they need to locate information, decide whether it is useful, and use it in a meaningful way.
These are life skills and they will become more and more important as our children mature.
Media Specialists are also librarians and we love books! We introduce the children to various genres of literature, such as realistic fiction, fantasy, historical fiction or mystery. We help them to locate information books and begin to develop an understanding of the Dewey organizational system of our libraries.
A media specialist is in a school to help children open the door to knowledge, understanding, and success.
