Teachers Have Sensory Needs Too Being an Avoider does not stop at childhood. These sensory processing patterns tend to stay with us throughout life. Hopefully the more we understand our sensory selves, the more we can develop strategies to help us navigate through life. Having grown up in a large family, I am used to a significant amount of auditory chaos. I can generally tolerate a noisy working environment. This suits me in my current job as I work with students in a variety of natural environments: classrooms, loud cafeterias, boisterous playgrounds and gyms with poor acoustics.

Naturally, it got me thinking about my own library's web presence. I'm one of those nerdy people who actually really loves tinkering with web design. Don't get me wrong, I'm no code writer, but given a little time and a few tools, I can make, if nothing else, a huge mess good effort. Additionally, I probably spend more time than I should poking around other school library websites too - just trolling for inspiration and such.

Your library online: web presence Your school library's presence in the school’s online learning environment is vital. It should be as welcoming, engaging and informative as the physical library.

ideas about information Edit: Despite my clarifications, people are still misinterpreting my original post as a proposed ‘solution’ to the problem of the Library degree, so I’ve rewritten this to stop that happening. To embark upon a Library Masters in 2014 is a huge undertaking. Assuming you do it part-time, whilst working to support yourself, you’ll spend between ten and eighteen thousand pounds over two years, along with, at a conservative estimate, 1500 hours of your time.[1] The question is, does the Library degree really represent the best use of this investment? What if you were to spend the same amount of time and money on a self-structured curriculum of study, events, conferences, training, and building an online portfolio, whilst continuing to work in an information role. Would you not emerge as a more rounded, knowledgeable, and relevant information professional?
