What Good Teaching Looks Like: Digital Research | Creating Lifelong Learners

What Good Teaching Looks Like: Digital Research | Creating Lifelong Learners | Creating Library Learning Commons | Scoop.it

As per the Common Core State Standards students must incorporate digital research in their work.  I interpret this to mean that students need a twenty-first century version of book sense.  

 

We used to teach students how to find books in a library, how to determine who the author and illustrator is, and where to find copyright information.  We now need to teach them how to determine keywords, know how to search, be able to determine who created a particular web page and evaluate a page for bias and reliability.

Totally progressive! The British Library is a wonderful mix of old and new. The quiet reading rooms are full of historical wood panelling creating a reflective ambience. The display spaces are generous and allow for contemporary literature / media exhibitions all designed to take one's interest. I'm sure the Czech design has learning areas that can aspire to that same

Last week, Apple has decided to do the same with older versions of the Adobe Flash Player plug-in.

I believe libraries are more important than ever--both for helping students learn to find and evaluate resources online as well as for helping to narrow the digital divide. Having said that, I do agree that libraries are--and need to be--in a state of great change. Exciting times!
