College Daze: A Snapshot of the Class of 2013 [INFOGRAPHIC] | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

SpareFoot.com, the largest online marketplace for self-storage, presents some figures that shed some light on what the future holds for the Class of 2013.

 

Taken from a number of different sources, this infographic should give recent graduates a good preview of what they can expect out there in the real world.

 

Key takeaways:
1.8 million students will earn Bachelor's degrees in 2013
13% graduates from 2013 will be hired than employers hired from class 2012

Why Data Is the Key to Successful Course Redesign - Edudemic

Why Data Is the Key to Successful Course Redesign - Edudemic | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

Course redesign can be a major undertaking, but utilizing the data derived from your existing course can inform your decisions on what areas need to be targeted. When you combine the four factors I mentioned and use them to form a holistic, summative picture of your course redesign project; you can be certain that what is currently working in your course remains, and what is not working is revised.

The internet isn't harming our love of 'deep reading', it's cultivating it

The internet isn't harming our love of 'deep reading', it's cultivating it | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

As it happens, I value deep reading – and so, perhaps, do you. And so, quite obviously, do all the youngish people I see everyday on London transport reading 700-page printed books such as the Game of Thrones series, 50 Shades of Grey or the new Donna Tartt. Stuart Jeffries has written persuasively about the popularity of such doorstops, as well as complex modern TV series. This might be a culture not of attention deficit but of "a wealth of attention focused more readily on the things that warrant it".

Os ebooks são um tipo de aplicação multimédia que se impôs nos últimos anos como uma séria alternativa à tecnologia analógica baseada em papel, fruto das muitas vantagens que o suporte digital proporciona para melhorar a experiência da leitura. O Epic Book Guide, descrito neste artigo, é interessante na medida em que ajuda a compreender que apps de leitura de ebooks existem, como as utilizar, para que servem e onde as obter; onde e como descarregar ebooks em vários formatos a partir de sites online; onde encontrar edições gratuitas de livros eletrónicos na Internet e como desenvolver edições de autor em que cada pessoa pode publicar e distribuir um ebook da sua autoria.

Why Kids Need Schools to Change | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it
The current structure of the school day is obsolete, most would agree. Created during the Industrial Age, the assembly line system we have in place now has little relevance to what we know kids actually need to thrive. Most of us know this, and yet making room for the huge shift in the system that's necessary has been difficult, if not impossible because of fear of the unknown.

36 Brain Breaks for Students - Infographic

36 Brain Breaks for Students - Infographic | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 12, 3:44 AM

Do you have a set of dice in your classroom? If not  you may want to locate a set. This infographic provides 36 brainbreaks for students, all based on rolling the dice. Although many of these activities may not be new to you the fact that the decision is made by rolling two dice is a great way to engage your students, and to teach them a lesson in probability. In fact, if you choose to do this over a period of time you might also record each activity and at some point discuss probability with them. You might also print a copy.This would allow one student each time to roll the dice, and the other to read out the brain break.

Please be aware that you will need to fill in a form to access the graph. If you find this version too difficult for your students you will find a simpler version of it at http://www.yourtherapysource.com/files/Roll_Some_Fun_Freebie2.pdf
