60% of students say they wouldn’t attend a school without free WiFi | 21st Century Librarian | Scoop.it

Surprisingly, according to research by Educause, only 78% of students feel that wifi is extremely valuable for their academic success, while 60% of students said they wouldn’t attend a college all if it didn’t offer free wifi. The study also finds that 47% of students believe technology makes professors better at their jobs, yet over 30% of students found their instructors to be incapable of getting technology working without student aid.

School Library Builds 'The Cave' to Attract Boy Readers

School Library Builds 'The Cave' to Attract Boy Readers | 21st Century Librarian | Scoop.it

So Haynes, who has a son herself, went to the school's media specialist, Angela Rosheim, and proposed they build a small reading area for boys—aka "The Cave"—stocked with books that were more to young guys' liking. Haynes researched how to design such a space, and studied the "Guys Read" website, launched by author and former U.S. kids' book ambassador Jon Scieszka. It includes tips on how to create guy-friendly reading areas, or what Scieszka calls, a "field office."
