District Resource Centres are well positioned to promote and facilitate the implementation of the effective use of learning resources. As the variety and format of learning resources continue to expand, there will be an increasing need to support the integration of these resources and their associated technologies with good teaching practice. Teachers will be faced with acquiring the skills needed to use a wider variety of learning resources in order to successfully integrate them into new and changing curriculums. A District Resource Centre should play an integral role in supporting student learning by providing the essential link between curriculum, school library resource centres and learning resources.
A District Resource Centre should provide the ongoing continuity needed to successfully implement new programs.
As well it plays an invaluable role in linking the curriculum to learning resource components required for effective instruction. Implementation will require the successful integration of information technology with curriculum learning outcomes and effective teaching strategies. A District Resource Centre can provide a teacher-friendly, resource-rich, environment. Given adequate budget and personnel, a District Resource Centre can support the educational programs and goals of colleges.
