In the Digital Age, What Becomes of the Library? | MindShift

In the Digital Age, What Becomes of the Library? | MindShift | ELT Digest | Scoop.it

In a related Pew study on libraries and the Internet, one librarian told researchers, “I believe public libraries should move away from being ‘houses of knowledge’ and move more towards being ‘houses of access.’ This is what the public is asking for and we are here to serve them.” Beyond the use of technology, many librarians think in terms of access and information being closely linked, and believe that libraries still have a responsibility to both.

Access to culturally and linguistically appropriate books is the largest barrier to world literacy. Libraries and Digital Resources can solve this if we Unite for Literacy!

Why Schools Must Move Beyond One-to-One Computing

Why Schools Must Move Beyond One-to-One Computing | ELT Digest | Scoop.it

As many schools and districts are now rushing to buy every student a digital device, I’m concerned that most one-to-one implementation strategies are based on the new tool as the focus of the program. Unless we break out of this limited vision that one-to-one computing is about the device, we are doomed to waste our resources.

Nik Peachey's curator insight, May 28, 2013 6:53 AM

Many of the points being made in this article really apply across most application of technology in learning. It's far too often about the hardware rather than the functionality.

Darren Smith's curator insight, May 28, 2013 6:31 PM

A challenging point of view considering SAPSS rush into technology at the moment.

Larry Davies's curator insight, June 3, 2013 8:03 AM

Pedagogy before technology. Always.
