Turnitin - What's Wrong with Wikipedia?

Turnitin - What's Wrong with Wikipedia? | DEZALibrary | Scoop.it

Educators are well aware of the shortcomings of relying on crowd-sourced content for authoritative information, yet the fact that Wikipedia continues to reign supreme as a top match in Turnitin suggests that students don't see things the same way. In short, what constitutes "research" for students today has come to mean "Googling."

Latest Study: A full-time school librarian makes a critical difference in boosting student achievement | School Library Journal | DEZALibrary | Scoop.it

Simply put, students suffer when they don’t have adequate resources—and, in particular, we’ve found that student achievement suffers when schools lack libraries that are staffed by full-time librarians. “Nearly every public school in Bucks, Delaware, and Montgomery Counties has a library with certified staff, which has been proven to increase student reading and comprehension,” notes Kintisch. “In contrast, most public schools in Philadelphia do not employ a certified librarian, and more than 140 do not have a library.”

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, March 12, 2013 11:01 AM

Kieth Curry Lance's decade long research studies established (beyond any doubt) that a professionally staffed library is essential for student achievement. It never hurts to be shown the obvious truth (over and over again).


When will the decision makers stop the lip service and pay attention to the research? School Libraries and Librarians WORK!

Six Steps for Planning a Successful Project

David Grant, who guides the school's technology integration and curriculum development, has put together a six-step rubric for designing a project. He says Fading Footprints, which became a model for King and Expeditionary Learning Schools, doesn't take an entire school, or even a team of twelve, to plan and carry out; one or two teachers can tailor this one to fit their time and resources.

I think I'll try this with books that cover the last grading period content. Research is the big push in our curriculum the last 6 weeks and there isn't enough of the library/librarian to go around. Perhaps some of the teachers will choose to use the books from the library in their classrooms instead of going to the computer labs. (There aren't enough of them to go around either.)

'Essential questions' are all too often lower order. And not that essential.

 

When we're working with schools on our Design Thinking School programme, one of the easiest ways to explain what we're looking for in the way a project is set, is whether the statement or questions being asked can be Googled easily: is this a Googleable or Not Googleable topic?

The Neuroscience of Your Brain on Fiction: Stories stimulate the brain. NY Times

The Neuroscience of Your Brain on Fiction: Stories stimulate the brain. NY Times | DEZALibrary | Scoop.it

Stories stimulate the brain. Metaphors like “He had leathery hands” rouse the sensory cortex.

 

Brain scans are revealing what happens in our heads when we read a detailed description, an evocative metaphor or an emotional exchange between characters. Stories, this research is showing, stimulate the brain and even change how we act in life.

 

Researchers have long known that the “classical” language regions, like Broca’s area and Wernicke’s area, are involved in how the brain interprets written words. What scientists have come to realize in the last few years is that narratives activate many other parts of our brains as well, suggesting why the experience of reading can feel so alive. Words like “lavender,” “cinnamon” and “soap,” for example, elicit a response not only from the language-processing areas of our brains, but also those devoted to dealing with smells.
