27 tools for diverse learners | Future of Libraries: Beyond Gutenberg | Scoop.it
According to neuroscience and the Universal Design for Learning theory, there is no one right way to learn. Fortunately, the latest crop of tech tools offers a variety of ways for students of all learning styles and preferences to engage, receive information and express their learning.
Valerie Hill's insight:

Wish I was attending ISTE2015 but glad I can learn virtually anywhere.

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!
