An online academic social networking project launched by Kendriya Vidyalaya Pattom has won the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan’s National Innovations and Experimentation Award 2010.

Named ‘Library Junction: Where Minds meet and Ideas pop up!’, the project was launched earlier this year with the aim of creating an easily accessible and user friendly online teaching and learning platform connecting the library, students and teachers.

Library Junction (libraryjunction.net) utilises the popular social networking concept as a platform to reach out to the new generation library users and kindles their love towards books and reading. It facilitates collaborative learning, knowledge sharing and critical thinking. Developing information and media literacy skills among students and helping them to find, evaluate and use accurate and trustworthy information on the internet is also an objective of the project.

According to school librarian S.L.Faisal, project coordinator, there are more than 750 members on this moderated online social network including students, teachers and professionals from all over the world. The NCERT has also selected this project for implementation under the All India Competition on Innovative Practices and Experiments in Education For Schools and Teacher Education Institutions 2010-’11.

Mr.Faisal will receive the award from Minister for Human Resources Kapil Sibal on December 13 .
