This article may open your eyes to the power of time-shifting your writing conferences using technology.  I regularly use screencasting to provide in context feedback on student portfolios.

“close-reading is the product of a dynamic and deeply personal interaction between the reader and a text. It is an active process characterized by questioning, adjusting reading rate, judgment thinking, and dozens of other “strategies” readers use to make sense of what they’re reading.”

The challenge facing libraries in an era of fake news

The challenge facing libraries in an era of fake news | Resources for Teachers | Scoop.it

Donald Barclay writes: "Thirty or 40 years ago, a student writing a research paper on the topic of acid rain might have needed to decide whether an article from a scientific journal like Nature was a more appropriate source than an article from a popular magazine like Time.

 

Today’s students, however, must know how to distinguish between articles published by genuine scholarly journals and those churned out by look-alike predatory and fake journals that falsely claim to be scholarly and peer-reviewed."

Mary Reilley Clark's curator insight, January 8, 12:18 PM

There's a link in this article to the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education from the Association of College and Research Libraries. Barclay notes that, "This new approach asks students to put in the time and effort required to determine the credibility and appropriateness of each information source for the use to which they intend to put it." If we in the primary and secondary libraries haven't educated students on how to do this, I don't think they'll have the mental stamina to do it in college! This makes me even more excited about the workshop our local state university is offering to get secondary library staff to understand what info literacy skills college students need, and to design collaborative lessons to help our students strengthen (or build) those skills.
