I’m Michael and I’m a learning resource coordinator (fancy word for a librarian!) at the Halley Academy, Blackheath. I’ve only been in the post since January 2020 but am very much looking forward to experimenting with the Fosil framework to help improve information literacy in the school. We are running an IB programme so I’m positive teachers will be open-minded to the framework!
Looking forward to having discussions on how best to work with teachers in class on some interesting subjects/using tech!
Great to see you introduce yourself on our forum. I feel that this is going to be the beginning of a very interesting and fulfilling journey for you. Please feel free to ask any questions you have and encourage your teachers to join in the conversation too.
Hello, I am Vittoria, and I started a new job as a Library Assistant (Assistant Librarian on my school ID) in a secondary school in London in January 2020. Prior to this I was a TA in a primary school where I created the school library “from the ground up”. I wanted to concentrate on working in the library and was lucky to secure my current role.
I also work as a casual, zero hour library assistant in the Wandsworth public libraries at the week ends; until isolation I was working every Saturday and Sunday and rarely had a day off…
I am interested in bringing information literacy into the school and I used the last few days since isolation to research this; it has been a steep learning curve. I think I can do with all the help I can get…
Thanks for introducing yourself. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have on the forum. Remember that no question is a silly one and we often find that others are wanting to ask the same thing but don’t. Be brave and we can all learn and support each other here. As a starting point make sure you check out and get familiar with the Fosil Cycle. If you can explain this to others – this is a good starting point. Good luck with your journey and I look forward to chatting with you along the way…
I’m Michelle and I’m a secondary school librarian (solo) working in an Essex school, for the last 15 years. (Previously, I worked as a Library Assistant in a public library.) I support the EPQ and am looking forward to discussions in school, on how the FOSIL framework can be incorporated into current teaching.
I want to develop on the existing programme we have, particularly for Year 7, and the need for this to be ongoing throughout all year groups.
Hi, I’m Kimberley, a secondary school librarian based in Cumbria. I am currently working on Chartership. I am loving learning about digital and critical literacy and am exploring opportunities to bring the FOSIL framework into school.
