Valerie Hill's insight:

The acquisition of people as "resources" is a phenomenon that fascinates me as an information professional.  No longer is it always necessary to enter a physical library to gather information.  Now we interact with others through personal networks that we choose ourselves.  Choose wisely, digital citizens!

Minecraft’s education options are as vast as the game itself. Don’t worry if you feel limited by time or your own imagination. Thousands of others are imaging worlds, too—and are willing to share.

Libraries should create an environment for "collaboration and knowledge co-construction."

Tasia Thompson's curator insight, February 11, 11:20 PM

quote: Students and teachers no longer need a library simply for access. Instead, they require a place that encourages participatory learning and allows for co-construction of understanding from a variety of sources. In other words, instead of being an archive, libraries are becoming a learning commons.
