As education technology has evolved, so, too, have the kinds of digital tools that school librarians use with their students. More than 750 school librarians responded to SLJ’s survey, representing K–12 public and private schools across the country.

Deborah Rinio's curator insight, December 12, 2013 1:14 PM

In the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District, library staff are often the front-line response for technical troubleshooting. Librarians also introduce teachers to new educational technology tools and strategies, help instruct students in those tools, and offer training to help both teachers and student improve their technology skills and know-how. 

Anita Vance's curator insight, January 28, 6:19 PM

That just makes sense - as information is shared through new media, librarians have learned to share it - we have the best job in the world !!!

The Future of Search May Not Be About Google: It's You In The End Who Will Decide

The Future of Search May Not Be About Google: It's You In The End Who Will Decide | Creating Library Learning Commons | Scoop.it
There is a evil side of Google which revealed itself in the Filter Bubble, invasion of privacy, the lack of transparency, in the monopoly induction of behavior and especially in what is happening in the search environment.

Lucy Beaton's insight:

This is alarming.  We, as Teacher Librarians, need to be aware of the ramifications of this.

Claude Terosier's curator insight, January 13, 2:44 AM

"we should worry about search engines becoming the arbiters of truth." De l'importance de comprendre comment on accède à l'information et de reprendre la main.

Stephen Dale's curator insight, January 13, 5:58 AM

People who use Google are given the impression that they are interacting with the data out there, but they are actually interacting with Google and its view of the world.

 

"They are prediction engines that constantly refine a theory about who you are and what you are going to do or want next. Together, they create an universe of data for each one of us."

"In a 2010 paper published in the Scientific American journal, Tim Berners-Lee warned about companies developing ever more “closed” products and “data islands”.

"Morville, in his book Search Patterns, says that the first and second results receive 80% of attention. The vertical approach suggests to the user the idea of a single result that fully answers the question, enclosing possibilities and preventing alternative realization."


Or in other words, is our acceptance of what we see in search results eroding our ability (or willingness) to consider alternatives and employ critical thinking?

Mrs. Dilling's curator insight, February 13, 11:52 AM

My favorite statement, "we must always be aware and well informed about the intentions of companies, and never stop having multiple options for any service."

 

This article was an eye opener for me. I had never questioned Google before.
