Libraries Are Not a "Netflix" for Books - BOOK RIOT

Libraries Are Not a "Netflix" for Books - BOOK RIOT | Future of Libraries: Beyond Gutenberg | Scoop.it
If there’s one phrase I dislike more than the latest company touting itself as the “Netflix for books,” it’s when the retort is that such a thing already exists and it’s called the library. The library is not a Netflix for books.

Valerie Hill's insight:

Take a look at the analysis closing each episode,  Actually reading a literary work is an experience and we must consider that we now live in an age of "disposable media".  Maybe these short clips get student to contemplate the importance of literature in culture.

5 Tools To Help Create A Paperless Book Club - Edudemic

5 Tools To Help Create A Paperless Book Club - Edudemic | Future of Libraries: Beyond Gutenberg | Scoop.it

"A class set of novels, binders, poster boards, and enough post-it notes to wallpaper a school…. all supplies associated with a traditional middle school book club model. With the addition of iPads, Google Apps, and other educational technology, the age of the “traditional” book club requires a change.

 

Digital book clubs allow for connected, flexible, and customized literacy instruction that engages all learners. From reading digital novels, to participating in online discussions, and annotating text with categorical tags to expressing ideas through transliteracy (multi-media tools), students will interact with the text, the teacher, and each other while receiving nearly instant, trackable feedback on their work. You can use technology to reinforce effective comprehension strategies while upgrading the literary climate of your classroom by following these 5 steps to revolutionize your classroom book clubs."
