The view from here - another MOOC | Future of Libraries: Beyond Gutenberg | Scoop.it

Being a terrifically slow learner, I’ve signed up for another MOOC. In my defense, I enrolled a while back and forgot, and now it’s come around just as I’ve been forced to admit that there are only so many chocolates you can eat or stuff down your cleavage before it all falls over.

15 Lesson Plans For Making Students Better Online Researchers ~ Global Digital Citizen Foundation

15 Lesson Plans For Making Students Better Online Researchers ~ Global Digital Citizen Foundation | Future of Libraries: Beyond Gutenberg | Scoop.it

"Google is usually one of the first places students turn to when tasked with an assignment. Whether it’s for research, real-time results, or just a little digital exploration … it’s important they know how to properly Google. Lucky for teachers (and students, of course), Google has a handy set of lesson plans that are just waiting to be unleashed upon the leaders of tomorrow.

 

"While I understand there’s a LOT more to research than just Googling, it’s important to note that this is where nearly all students start their research. Therefore, it’s a critical skill if they’re going to start down the right paths.

 

"Below are 15 lesson plans courtesy of Google designed to make students better online researchers. They’re organized by difficulty and meant to help students (and everyone) become better online searchers."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 9, 5:20 PM

It is about finding a way to integrating various reading into our lives. Statistically, male and females read differently. It is in diversity and blending, we will find that book, e-books, the Internet, etc. come to life.

Millions of historic images posted to Flickr | BBC News

Millions of historic images posted to Flickr | BBC News | Future of Libraries: Beyond Gutenberg | Scoop.it
An American academic is creating a searchable database of 12 million historic copyright-free images.Kalev Leetaru has already uploaded 2.6 million pictures to Flickr, which are searchable thanks to tags that have been automatically added.The photos and drawings are sourced from more than 600 million library book pages scanned in by the Internet Archive organisation.The images have been difficult to access until now.Mr Leetaru said digitisation projects had so far focused on words and ignored pictures."For all these years all the libraries have been digitising their books, but they have been putting them up as PDFs or text searchable works," he told the BBC."They have been focusing on the books as a collection of words. This inverts that."Stretching half a millennia, it's amazing to see the total range of images and how the portrayals of things have changed over time.Click headline to read more--
