Any Questions


Iti s great to see a New Zealand site Any Questions which is for children to have access to expert librarians between 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. (NZ time) during term times. This site is for New Zealand children and provides high quality research resources.
"AnyQuestions.co.nz is a free online reference service for New Zealand school
students.
Designed for both primary and secondary students, AnyQuestions puts
them in touch with a skilled and friendly online librarian. Using interactive
software and an agreed information literacy approach these librarians are able
to help school students identify the information they need then guide them to
quality online resources.
AnyQuestions.co.nz focuses on supporting the New
Zealand curriculum. It is accessible from any internet connected computer
anywhere; school, library or home.
The service is an additional resource, to
work alongside and complement, (but not replace) existing school and public
library services - a ‘guide on the side’ at the point and time of need.
The
key benefits of the service lie in its safety and the help it provides for
students in finding quality assured information that’s right for their need and
level."

Sir Ken




This is a video of a talk by Sir Ken Robinson. Although it is quite long it is well worth watching as there are great thought-provoking ideas in it.
