TED TALKS

  • TED: Pico Iyer: The art of stillness - Pico Iyer (2014)

    11/26/2014 11:00 AM

    The place that travel writer Pico Iyer would most like to go? Nowhere. In a counterintuitive and lyrical meditation, Iyer takes a look at the incredible insight that comes with taking time for stillness. In our world of constant movement and distraction, he teases out strategies we all can use to take back a few minutes out of every day, or a few days out of every season. It’s the talk for anyone who feels overwhelmed by the demands for our world.

  • TED: Emily Balcetis: Why some people find exercise harder than others - Emily Balcetis (2014)

    11/25/2014 11:06 AM

    Why do some people struggle more than others to keep off the pounds? Social psychologist Emily Balcetis shows research that addresses one of the many factors: Vision. In an informative talk, she shows how when it comes to fitness, some people quite literally see the world differently from others -- and offers a surprisingly simple solution to overcome these differences.

  • TED: Mark Plotkin: What the people of the Amazon know that you don’t - Mark Plotkin (2014)

    11/24/2014 10:50 AM

    "The greatest and most endangered species in the Amazon rainforest is not the jaguar or the harpy eagle," says Mark Plotkin, "It's the isolated and uncontacted tribes." In an energetic and sobering talk, the ethnobotanist brings us into the world of the forest's indigenous tribes and the incredible medicinal plants that their shamans use to heal. He outlines the challenges and perils that are endangering them — and their wisdom — and urges us to protect this irreplaceable repository of knowledge.

There have been more than 70 studies on the impact of school library programs on academic achievement. The findings have been consistent. An excellent library program correlates with a 10 to 20 percent increase in standardized test scores when compared to schools without this strong educational component.

  • Quality print, digital, and technology resources support and enrich the curriculum.
  • Carefully selected  collections help students to become lifelong readers for information and enjoyment.
  • State of the art technology is incorporated into the learning/teaching process. CSG works with area libraries: Columbus Metropolitan Library, Bexley Library, Ohioana Library.
  • The professionally trained and credentialed librarians plan and team teach with faculty at all division levels. The librarians teach information literacy skills and provide individual assistance to students.
  • Dedicated support staff enables the professional librarians to collaborate with teachers, and to participate in school-wide committee meetings and projects.
  • Technology is an essential part of a successful library program. Information resources, including licensed databases, are available throughout the school via networked computers and wireless access points. Going beyond the walls of the physical library, all digital resources can be accessed wherever there is an Internet connection, on and off campus.
  • The librarians provide professional development and in-service training for teachers on integrating information literacy into the curriculum, and getting the most out of technology.
