Technochalkie: Using the iPad as a Document Camera

Technochalkie: Using the iPad as a Document Camera | BLC Information Skills | Scoop.it

"The iPad can be a great tool to support kids learning, and it is also a great tool for enhancing your teaching. One way it can do this is through the use of the inbuilt camera to provide a close up view of what you are demonstrating, either in real time or recorded on video for students to view while you are working with others. One example of this might be modeling on a piece of paper how to complete a technique in the visual arts or an algorithm in Mathematics."

Non-Fiction Text Structures!

Non-Fiction Text Structures! | BLC Information Skills | Scoop.it
Understanding non-fiction text structures is critical for “Reading to Learn” (i.e., reading for information). Students should be familiar with the five most common text structures and should be able to identify each structure using signal words and key features. Understanding which text structure is used helps students monitor their understanding, while learning the specific content that is presented. These text structures need to be explicitly taught in the classroom.

Flip This Library: School Libraries Need a Revolution

Flip This Library: School Libraries Need a Revolution | BLC Information Skills | Scoop.it

What has to happen for school libraries to become relevant? If we want to connect with the latest generation of learners and teachers, we have to totally redesign the library from the vantage point of our users—our thinking has to do a 180-degree flip. In short, it’s time for school libraries to become a lot less like Microsoft and a lot more like Google. With this notion in mind, David Loertscher, collaborated with two colleagues, Carol Koechlin and Sandi Zwaan, Canadian educational consultants, to develop an idea called the school library learning commons.
