A new Follett-sponsored initiative aims to raise awareness of how important school librarians are to the success of digital learning.


School librarians are critical to the success of digital learning initiatives, and they deserve a place at the table in discussions about digital learning: That’s the message behind a new awareness campaign that targets K-12 superintendents and other senior school district leaders.

In 2013 I learned about Maker Projects and Student-created information. Wonder what will emerge in 2014?

Doug Johnson’s Little List of Library and Technology Laws

Doug Johnson’s Little List of Library and Technology Laws | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Doug Johnson's Take On Libraries & Tech


Here's a long list of "Laws" that will have you smiling and nodding in recognition! ~ Dennis


---------------------------


As far as I can tell, cynicism, pessimism, or hypocrisy have never served any teacher or student well. But a little clear-eyed honesty well-stated certainly can.


Harry Truman said it best: “I don’t give them hell; I just tell them the truth and they think it’s hell.”

Well, it’s not really my intention to give anyone hell, but here are a few “truths” that may seem a bit curmudgeonly. I believe these are my own, but if anyone recognizes the same sentiment stated in a similar fashion by someone else, I’d like to know about it.


I am sure that the genome project will soon discover a curmudgeon gene, but having worked in libraries and with technology for over 30 years, I believe I have earned my right to be a bit cranky without the benefit of genetic predisposition.


Agree or disagree. Add to the list if you’d like using the comment section below. Share your law!

Interview: Joyce Valenza, Edublog Lifetime Achievement Award

Interview: Joyce Valenza, Edublog Lifetime Achievement Award | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Superstar teacher librarian Joyce Valenza is this year's winner of the Edublog Lifetime Achievement Award for her tremendous contribution to the world of ed tech.


There were 40 nominees for the Edublog Lifetime Achievement Award, and a librarian won. What does that say about how others view the profession?


It's about time—not for me—but for the school library profession. I think it says two things. One, that our teacher librarian colleagues have a real voice in the ed tech field—one that's loud enough to be heard outside the libraryverse. It says that we are connecting, not only with partners in our buildings, but with partners in the other communities of practice—classroom teachers across disciplines and grade levels, administrators, academics, librarians in other library situations, across geography. We now mingle effectively face-to-face and online. Our ideas cross-pollinate. We are a force at ISTE [International Society for Technology in Education conference] and BLC [Building Learning Communities conference] and at edcamps and at unconferences, at webinars, and on Twitter and through our blogs. Two, within our own profession, we are now an effective tribe. We have leadership. We have forums. We share with each other, we mentor each other. We can mobilize for action quickly. To be completely honest, I know I had some very kind teacher librarian colleagues advocating for me on Twitter and on their blogs.
