Information literacy and the integration of technology are key components of 21st century learning, in the U.S. and around the world. According to the U.S. Common Core State Standards Initiative, students who are college- and career-ready “use technology and digital media strategically and capably. Students employ technology thoughtfully to enhance their reading, writing, speaking, listening and language use. They tailor their searches online to acquire useful information efficiently, and they integrate what they learn using technology with what they learn offline.”

As key decision makers regarding educational technology in their schools or districts, school administrators are in a position to ensure the success of their students and teachers by offering the best information resources available. The graphic below illustrates how school administrators – including principals, superintendents, curriculum directors and department heads – can work with their school libraries to support both student research and classroom instruction.
