LAUSD's students need better libraries, not iPads

LAUSD's students need better libraries, not iPads | Future of Libraries: Beyond Gutenberg | Scoop.it
Like Supt. John Deasy and others in the Los Angeles Unified School District , I am concerned about the educational civil rights of the district's students. While the iPad -for-every-student controversy has gotten much media coverage lately, a long-term problem has gotten very little attention: the lack of equal access to a quality school library. A 19-month investigation by the U.S. Department of Education 's Office for Civil Rights concluded in 2011 that thousands of LAUSD students were be

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.

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."

Excellent lessons. Must be used.

Deborah Fillman's curator insight, December 15, 8:47 PM

This is a pet peeve of mine--schools are still not teaching kids how to do this properly, with disastrous results. Whether you homeschool or send a child to school, these lessons will help them use the Internet more effectively (and responsibly) for research projects.
