The need to address essential learning skills in the information age is paramount. Learning for the future Second edition builds on the processes and structure articulated in the first edition, and highlights the increasing role of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in the school's learning environment. Using the concepts of information and knowledge management, this book provides:

  • Guidelines and indicators for developing information and ICT literacy in the school
  • A matrix of information and ICT literacy
  • A planning structure for ICT implementation
  • An outline of staffing needs and expertise {See sample pages link}
  • Technical and practical recommendations for acquiring electronic resources

The 2001 edition is based on the practices of effective learning and the successful development, management and implementation of ICT in both primary and secondary schools.

Five interrelated domains (learners and learning; teachers and teaching; providing access to information; resourcing the curriculum; and, developing the physical environment) encompass the role of school libraries as a vibrant information environment.

This is a joint publication of the Australian School Library Association, Australian Library and Information Association (School Libraries Section).
