Has the school library a future in the digital age? | Flying Off the Shelf | Scoop.it

"It is my belief that the library has the capacity to enjoy its own renaissance. Because of the digital revolution it is no longer just about the printed book. As a space, it is about inspiring young people."

Some Thoughts on Interest-based Pathways to Learning | DMLcentral | Flying Off the Shelf | Scoop.it
I have a confession to make. It’s a shameful, dark secret that I fear may be common to many adults around the world. And, when I was teaching, it was certainly one that I saw shared by many students I came into contact with.

Teaching Students to Become Curators of Ideas: The Curation Project

Teaching Students to Become Curators of Ideas: The Curation Project | Flying Off the Shelf | Scoop.it

Dr Corrine Weisgerber (@corrinew) teaches a Social Media Class at St Edward's University in Austin, Texas. On this site she shares details of her Transformational Digital Learning Designs in which her students are actively engaged in a Personal Learning Project, Blogging Project, Curation Assignment, Conversation Engagement, Live-Blogging/Live-Tweeting Project and Participation Assessment. The details of these assignment briefs to students can be found here: http://myweb.stedwards.edu/corinnew/comm4352/COMM3309SP12.pdf

 

Corrine shares some of the best examples of her students' work too - check out the blog roll which takes you to a selection of her students' blogs and some delightful curation projects where students used Scoop.It! and Storiful as the choice of digital media to present their work and demonstrate their learning.

 

One of her most rewarding learning designs was The Curation Project.

A MUST read here: http://academic.stedwards.edu/socialmedia/blog/2012/04/16/teaching-students-to-become-curators-of-ideas-the-curation-project-3/

The History of English in Ten Minutes

The History of English in Ten Minutes | Flying Off the Shelf | Scoop.it
Where did the phrase 'a wolf in sheep's clothing' come from? And when did scientists finally get round to naming sexual body parts? Voiced by Clive Anderson, this entertaining romp through 'The History of English' squeezes 1600 years of history into 10 one-minute bites, uncovering the sources of English words and phrases from Shakespeare and the King James Bible to America and the Internet. Bursting with fascinating facts, the series looks at how English grew from a small tongue into a major global language before reflecting on the future of English in the 21st century.

Building Good Search Skills: What Students Need to Know | MindShift

Building Good Search Skills: What Students Need to Know | MindShift | Flying Off the Shelf | Scoop.it

"Search competency is a form of literacy, like learning a language or subject. Like any literacy, it requires having discrete skills as well as accumulating experience in how and when to use them. But this kind of intuition can’t be taught in a day or even in a unit – it has to be built up through exercise and with the guidance of instructors while students take on researching challenges."

Heather Hersey's insight:

Terrific breakdown of the "hallmarks of a good online search education."

I love this analogy for a bookstore:  "It’s liberating to see a book cover that draws you to it like a piece of art on a gallery wall. Bookshops are like miniature art galleries after all — to me, anyway!" - Coralie Bickford-Smith (selected "The Yellow World" cover).
