I AM A {SOCIAL} LIBRARIAN infographic - Free download!

I AM A {SOCIAL} LIBRARIAN infographic - Free download! | 21st Century Library | Scoop.it
Download, embed and share The Social Librarian infographic. The social librarian is enmeshed in the fabric of the Internet of Things as curator, educator, filter and beacon.

 

"Social today means so much more than sending a tweet or posting to Facebook. The social librarian is enmeshed in the fabric of the Internet of Things as curator, educator, filter and beacon. In this complex, dynamic and demanding environment, librarians are extending themselves and empowering library users.

In recognition of this, Elsevier's Library Connect Newsletter (@library_connect) and Joe Murphy (@libraryfuture), Librarian & Technology Analyst/Trend Spotter, offer up a visual portrait of The Social Librarian, and invite you to download and post, share on your social streams, and discuss with your library stakeholders.

Libraries have the potential to significantly enhance the development of life-long learners through excellent provision of expertise, resources and spaces.  There are some great NZ examples referred to in this post.

pru's curator insight, June 7, 2013 9:06 PM

There are challenges for school libraries in balancing these spaces, particularly collection space. Once the overriding priority, have we gone too far in rationalising physical collection space and thus risked devaluing what is part of a library's unique value? Of course making virtual collections visible in our space is also important.

The Future of Education: BYOD in the Classroom | Innovation Insights | Wired.com

The Future of Education: BYOD in the Classroom | Innovation Insights | Wired.com | 21st Century Library | Scoop.it

"As children across the nation return to school, many are going armed with their own computational tools. From laptops to tablets and smartphones, schools and universities across the globe are testing out a more dynamic learning environment, where students bring and use their choice of technologically assistive devices in the classroom. Despite the obvious benefits, the influx of mobile technology in educational systems has also provoked backlash from parents and teachers alike, similar to the BYOD backlash witnessed within enterprise IT departments in the past few years.

 

Educational institutions are ultimately presented two options: adopt a BYOD program, embracing the technology trend, encouraging student participation, and expanding curriculum to include BYOD-driven topics, or to impose of a BYOD policy, setting rules to govern the presence and practice of these potentially disruptive devices."

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 24, 2013 5:44 PM

Interesting that some Silicon Valley inventors of Apple I-pad  choose to send their children to Waldorf Schools that do not embrace computers. Why? The outcomes of hours spent in front of computer screens for developing brains has not been identified clearly in terms of long term effects. I believe that a good teacher who empowers her students to learn can do so without technology, I am speaking here of elementary schools where most students are gaining literacy that can be applied in any medium a little later. Let's restrict their use in kindergartens and primary schools to be on the safe side.
