Future Ready Librarians Update Framework; ISTE Creates Crosswalk

New framework connects to ISTE standards and a guide helps librarians work in a collaborative, practical way.

Future Ready Librarians (FRL) released a new framework at the group's Leadership Summit at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Annual Conference in Chicago.

Replacing the two-year-old original version, the new framework changes the center of the circle from "Personalized Student Learning" to "Learner Centered," a move meant to put the focus on all learners.

The second change has added "Literacy" in a circle around that center. Literacy, which was absent from the original framework, now touches every tenet: curriculum, instruction, and assessment; personalized professional learning; robust infrastructure, budget, and resources; community partnerships; data and privacy; collaborative leadership; and use of space and time.

 

 

Along with the reveal of FRL's new framework, ISTE released a crosswalk designed to help school librarians, "identify new ways to lead, teach, and support students and teachers" using the FRL framework and the ISTE Standards for Educators together.

"These two frameworks support and complement each other, each deepening the other because they share the same goal: dynamic, equitable digital age learning for all students," the free downloadable document reads. "Because the Future Ready framework takes a high level view, while the Educator Standards are more granular, the specific, related portions of the Future Ready indicators are highlighted to make the interconnects clearer. Use this framework to guide and deepen the work you do as a librarians or library media specialist or to rethink, redesign and grow the role in your school or district."
