 The New Media Consortium’s Horizon Report: 2017 Library Edition indicates technology will expand the role of the library. 


Some big-name libraries have gone digital with their resources. Recently, the New York Public Library went live with more than 187,000 digitized items in very high resolution.

“The web has become a vibrant cultural commons, and I think that we’ve seen that —whether they’re legacy cultural institutions like libraries and museums and archives or more internet-native public institutions like Wikipedia, Wikimedia and the Internet Archive — more are offering unrestricted open content into the web,” says Ben Vershbow, the former director of NYPL Labs, a digital innovation team at the library.

Creating an Authentic Maker Education Rubric

Creating an Authentic Maker Education Rubric | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
While many teachers are excited about the maker movement and may even be creating projects for their classrooms, assessment can be puzzling even to veteran classroom teachers. How can teachers prove that deep, rich learning is occurring through making? How do we justify a grade to students and parents alike, especially to the student who "just isn’t good at art"? By crafting a three-part rubric that assesses process, understanding, and product, teachers can rest assured that they are covering all the bases.

Learning analytics: a better way to measure student satisfaction

Learning analytics: a better way to measure student satisfaction | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it

Dragan Gasevic looks at how learning analytics can be used to support the student experience as a tool for learning gain.


Understanding what satisfaction means in the context of learning is also key. Happiness is not necessarily an indicator of “good” learning. I refer to the concept “desirable difficulties”, which is well established in educational psychology, including spaced practice or self-testing. It relates to the effective approaches to learning that can be promoted by in-course expectations. Learning analytics can offer a way to understand the complex interplay between learning gains, effective study and teaching practices, and student satisfaction.


However academics and students choose to use the data that are increasingly available on their student journey, context is key. You can’t separate the data from the organisational culture, national and regional differences, pedagogical differences between courses, and the political context. Rather than applying the same data rules across all providers and courses to reach a neat set of answers, we must look at the context in which we’re operating.


Even within an institution, one size absolutely does not fit all. The approach we’ve taken with our science and technology students would not work with, say, English or history students, although we’re following with interest the development of writing analytics that some of our global partners are working on, where analytics are being used to gather evidence of, for example, the coherence and summary of an argument.

Out of High School, Into Real Life :: NY Times

Out of High School, Into Real Life :: NY Times | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it

"Some 30 percent of this year’s three million graduating seniors will not go straight to college, a number that is ticking up as an improving economy draws more graduates directly to work. They go to Walmarts and to welding shops, restaurants, salons, hospitals and construction sites, to start careers on the tougher side of the vast economic and cultural divide that is demarcated by a college degree.

"Some — mostly boys, researchers say — will land high-paying jobs as welders, electricians, plumbers or air-conditioning technicians. But the number of higher-skilled jobs attainable with a high school diploma is eroding over the long term, replaced by low-skilled work, despite President Trump’s promises to champion blue-collar workers.

"This graduation season, The New York Times visited schools in rural Idaho, an industrial city in Indiana and California’s suburban Inland Empire to talk with seniors and their parents about their plans, hopes and dreams — and their decisions not to continue their education."
