School libraries hit hard by budget cuts

School libraries hit hard by budget cuts | 21st Century School Libraries | Scoop.it
No data on school library closures are kept, but a steep drop in the number of certified teacher librarians employed by school districts shows students across the state aren't getting the library services they once had.

Mobile iEducator | reviewing the best apps for education | 21st Century School Libraries | Scoop.it

These are my favorite apps for demonstration projects and presentations. Click on the icon or the link to connect to the iTunes Store. HINT: I use many of these apps with screenshots taken from what we are studying. To take a screenshot on an Apple device, hit the home button and the on/off button at the same time and the device will automatically capture whatever is showing on your app’s screen. Need a photo of Abe Lincoln? Google it, zoom and frame it so it fits the entire screen, then take your screenshot. You can now import it as a photo into most of the apps below.

Five technology skills every student should learn

Five technology skills every student should learn | 21st Century School Libraries | Scoop.it

What are the most critical technology skills for students to learn? eSchool News recently asked readers this question. From having the courage to experiment with different technologies to possessing online literacy, readers said being a tech-savvy student in the 21st century is about much more than learning how to use a certain software program or device—it’s about being able to adapt to what’s constantly changing.
