By way of my husband I came across a really interesting job opening at a Bay Area independent school. Sadly, it isn’t one I would be applying for simply because we don’t live close enough to Walnut Creek. But it got me thinking about updating my resume and about working on some different projects. The title and description are:

Information and Digital Literacy Specialist

  • works with the Librarian, the PC Specialist, the Mac/iPad Specialist, and the Director of Technology as a member of the Information Media Team
  • the candidate must have
    • a knowledge of STEAM and Maker movements
    • experience working with the students and teachers on planning, implementing, and assessing authentic, integrated, hands-on projects in innovative work spaces
    • strong research and organizational skills
    • a knowledge of media/information literacy and integration of electronic resources
    • a proven ability to assist teachers and serve students in a variety of environments

It’s not technically a library or librarian position, but I think a lot of librarians, especially school librarians would be well suited for the job. I was particularly interested because I think at this point I want to stay (and am stuck) in school libraries. They’re also looking for some skills and interests that I’m interested in, particularly the Maker Movement and the project-based learning portion.

Just thought I would share. I haven’t done a lick of research on this, not even a simple Google search, but I am curious if anyone else has run across this type of job (maybe not with the same title) before?
