School libraries changing with move to digital resources | eSchool News | Education and Libraries | Scoop.it

As schools across the nation move from printed textbooks to digital materials and digital learning environments, school libraries are adapting to keep pace—and new advancements are changing the very definition of school libraries and library media specialists.

 

Many of today’s students do not know what a card catalog is, and challenges lie not in locating information about various topics, but in narrowing it down and determining whether resources are trustworthy or not.

29 Apps For Teachers: The Educator's Essential iPad Toolkit

29 Apps For Teachers: The Educator's Essential iPad Toolkit | Education and Libraries | Scoop.it

"

At TeachThought, we often provide lists of digital resources, and many of them are apps.

 

Apps for struggling readers. http://www.teachthought.com/apps-2/50-popular-ipad-apps-for-struggling-readers-writers/

 

Apps for struggling writers. http://www.teachthought.com/apps-2/41-resources-tools-and-apps-to-improve-writing-skills/

 

Apps for project-based learning. http://www.teachthought.com/apps-2/10-apps-for-more-organized-project-based-learning/

 

Any while many of these apps are for students, the following list of apps from Sam Gliksman can be considered for both teachers and students, and an excellent foundation slew of apps for any 21st century teacher. From GoodReader and Slide Shark to Printopia and Air Display, all fill different niches of 21st century learning, and the many possibilities the iPad affords."

Seek and Reflect - ETL505 Bibliographic Standards – The Change from AACR2 to RDA

Seek and Reflect - ETL505 Bibliographic Standards – The Change from AACR2 to RDA | Education and Libraries | Scoop.it

In 2013 a new cataloguing standard for describing and accessing resources will be available for use. Resource Description and Access (RDA) (Joint Steering Committee for Development of RDA, 2010) will replace the Anglo American Cataloguing Rules 2 (AACR2) (The Joint Steering Committee for the Revision of AACR, 2005). Merely revising AACR2 was deemed inefficient and ineffective in keeping pace with the changing formats and technologies of the 21st century. Hider (2008, p34) says that updating, rather than reinventing standards, is too slow a mechanism to keep pace with the speed of technological advances, therefore it seems a paradigm shift was required.
