When you donate through Collectibles with Causes, we make sure the entire process is fast, easy & that the tax deduction is financially beneficial. Most of our comic donors donate comic books & art they have had on their walls for years, while others donate multiple pieces that have been carefully tucked away in their attic. http://www.collectibleswithcauses.org/

A recent experience in class left me a bit rattled, and made me wonder if I’ve long been trying to teach an impossible skill. It confronted me with a fundamental question: What’s teachable, and what do students simply have to figure out on their own with the passage of time?

Libraries reinvent themselves for the 21st century

Libraries reinvent themselves for the 21st century | Faculty Development and Support for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
For centuries, the defining role of the library has been as a repository of books.

 

Now, in the 21st century, the library faces perhaps its most momentous challenge.

 

Library leaders are adapting to a paradigm shift by reimagining the library as an engaged community center. The role of librarians is being re-branded to reflect their expertise as content curators and trusted navigators in an ever-expanding ocean of information — in whatever format it may exist.

 

Libraries are abuzz with services that go beyond traditional fare to offer more active programming for patrons, including an after-school program to aid students with homework. In the summer, more meeting rooms for patrons to use for business appointments,  more computer labs where patrons learn tech skills, or enroll in massive open online courses, or MOOCs, and other services.

More Disappearance of the Campus Edge: This Community College’s Newest Building Is On the UC Davis Campus

More Disappearance of the Campus Edge: This Community College’s Newest Building Is On the UC Davis Campus | Faculty Development and Support for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

That’s the lead in last Friday’s “Buildings & Grounds” post by Lawrence Biemiller at The Chronicle of Higher Education. 

 

"Sacramento City College has opened a $7.4-million complex on the U. of California at Davis’s new West Campus. The 20,000-square-foot facility, intended for 2,000 students, offers general-education courses at a much lower cost than students would pay to take courses through the university. For a small fee, students can also take advantage of the university’s library and recreation facilities."

'School libraries play a huge part in pupils' education'

'School libraries play a huge part in pupils' education' | Faculty Development and Support for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

In a society where one in three homes has no books owned by the children in them, it is essential that youngsters can find them elsewhere.

 

Recent research emphasises this importance. A study by the Institute of Education (2013) found reading for pleasure ‘to be more important for children's cognitive development between ages 10 and 16 than their parents' level of education.’

Infographic: Why aren’t your students participating on the Discussion Board?

 

Trying to engage students in your online courses can be a hassle sometimes, with problems arising from the way the course is designed and up to the way you connect with them on a daily basis. Discussion boards, however challenging they might be, offer a good opportunity to extend the learning space beyond the general class contact hours.

This post discusses how big data is impacting education. In the discussion on big data the following question is raised: "How can we make our students (especially those online students) more successful? (In other words, retention, retention, retention.)" As she learned more about big data she wondered what happened to the human side of the equation, "the caring."

Although this article looks at online learning the words of the Dalai Lama ring true for all of us as educators. Read through them and see what you think. All words used in the image above were said by the Dalai Lama. My thanks to her for putting together some of his words and bringing them to our attention.

8 Steps To Flipped Teacher Professional Development - Te@chThought

8 Steps To Flipped Teacher Professional Development - Te@chThought | Faculty Development and Support for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"The idea here isn’t simply that educators can improve by connected through social networks–they already are doing that. Rather, that schools can decentralize the teacher training effort by cutting them loose and supporting their self-directed efforts through an array of resources. The purpose of this post, beyond clarifying some how social media-driven and self-directed teacher professional development might work, is to offer some (mostly) concrete ideas for actually getting started designing such a program in your school or district. We would love to hear any suggestions in the comments because, well, that’d be social of you."

iPads + project based learning = limitless possibilities - Daily Genius

iPads + project based learning = limitless possibilities - Daily Genius | Faculty Development and Support for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Though more than two years into my school’s implementation of project based learning, yesterday, I found myself excited all over again. I was helping a second grade teacher enhance her landforms PBL by using Padlet as part of the KWL process and suddenly realized that this approach to student-centered learning has truly become a part of who we are as a school.

My adventures in combining PBLs and iPads began with a gift of two carts. I had just started taking the PBLU online courses when the head of our independent pre-k through eighth grade school challenged each grade-level team to teach one unit using the PBL approach while finding authentic ways to draw in iPads. As the lower school technology integration person, I immediately went on a quest to find a guinea pig willing to plan and co-teach a PBL unit incorporating iPads. This is the story of that first experience. . .
