Poly Library to Be a Digital Resource

Poly Library to Be a Digital Resource | How to teach online efectively? | Scoop.it
LAKELAND | Florida Polytechnic University will be non-traditional in many ways, but one of the most dramatic alternatives to a typical university setting will be seen in the library. Or, rather, not seen.
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

...We will be different in that our resources will be available primarily online," Miller said. "Our library space on campus will be a contemplative space, as well as a collaborative laboratory for learning. Our library space has been designed so that the space itself can learn and evolve as technology advances."

It's the way things are going in today's library environment, Miller said. "There are many almost all electronic libraries, in schools, colleges, universities, as well as public libraries," she said. "Digital collections have matured enough to provide most resources needed for STEM learning."

Fourteen years ago, when her daughter was four years old, Terry Sopotnick made a decision about her child’s education that wasn’t particularly popular.
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

The main difference between a home-schooled and a public- or private-schooled student is their transcript. While public and private-schooled students generally have uniform transcripts, home-schooled students’ transcripts can vary widely. Home-schooled families make customized transcripts to reflect their student’s academic experience, including detailed lists of textbooks, enrichment activities and course syllabi, Cutts said. Admission officers also like to see standardized test scores to assess how well students retain information.
