Speak Up Reports - Personalizing the Classroom Experience

Speak Up Reports - Personalizing the Classroom Experience | Advocating for School Libraries | Scoop.it

Personalizing the Classroom Experience – Teachers, Librarians and Administrators Connects the Dots with Digital Learning is the second in a two part series to document the key national findings from Speak Up 2011. This report focuses on how today’s educators are personalizing the learning process for students. The ways that educators are personalizing learning centers around their own experiences with online learning, socially-based media and digital content - much like the students in their own classrooms are already doing!

The Promise of Libraries Tranforming Communities | Renee Hobbs | Advocating for School Libraries | Scoop.it

"As a 2012 Technology Fellow for the ALA's Office of Information Technology Policy (OITP), I've had a chance to work with academic librarians, school librarians and public librarians on an emerging definition of digital literacy. Although digital literacy may take different forms depending on the individual, it’s a constellation of life skills that include basic foundational literacies, like reading comprehension and computer skills, as well as transformational literacies, that include the ability to access and evaluate information, create and critique messages, and use reflective thinking and civic action to make a difference in the world."
