Fact vs Fake: Resources to Help Librarians Navigate Digital Literacy - ALSC Blog

Fact vs Fake: Resources to Help Librarians Navigate Digital Literacy - ALSC Blog | Future Ready School Libraries | Scoop.it
One can’t help but to be publicly aware of so many things these days. And if you are a walking, talking, breathing, adult, anywhere in the world, you are certainly aware of the current intense interest in the power and persuasiveness of social media. The role of librarians when it comes to helping their patrons negotiate and assess the information that comes from those sources varies greatly depending upon your community, your library, your job. That role, to provide media and digital literacy in a constantly changing world, demands more than ever that we share what we learn and our own expertise. Towards that end, ALSC’s Intellectual Freedom Committee partnered with AASL to host a joint Community Forum on Digital Literacy/Digital Citizenship.  If you missed the forum you can access the transcript here or focus your attention on the media literacy section of the ALSC Post-Election Resource.   Here ar

Combining Inquiry and PBL: 3 Guidelines for Success

Combining Inquiry and PBL: 3 Guidelines for Success | Future Ready School Libraries | Scoop.it

Engaging in inquiry does not mean logging hours in the library or on the computer searching for information. Especially with elementary students, inquiry happens in a variety of settings and experiences. As John Larmer, Editor in Chief of the Buck Institute, points out: “Students can find answers to their questions from many sources, including readings, but also experts, experiments, and field work.”

Anxiety Is Taking A Toll On Teens, Their Families And Schools - MindShift

Anxiety Is Taking A Toll On Teens, Their Families And Schools - MindShift | Future Ready School Libraries | Scoop.it
Anxiety is increasingly becoming a serious issue for American teens. Sixty-two percent of incoming freshman surveyed by the American College Health Association said they’d experienced overwhelming anxiety the year before, up from 50-percent in 2011. High school counselors and parents are increasingly aware of the problem, especially when teens are so anxious they don’t want to go to school.

Technology (tech + logos) is wisdom and conversation about, with, and through tools. As Abraham Maslow stated, if the only tool we have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. Good craftspeople are wise and converse with and through their tools as they choose them and use them.

Hannah Arendt said to leave children to their own devices (an interesting word) is unethical.
