School Library Thrives After Ditching Print Collection - The Digital Shift

School Library Thrives After Ditching Print Collection - The Digital Shift | In the Library and out in the world | Scoop.it
Mayra.Loves.Books's insight:

The only reason I post this is for the great comments included. The school in the article does not have a library, even though their administrator calls it that name. What it does have is a room where people go to use their digital devices, no different than a Starbucks or an airport terminal.

My Ten Most Used Apps to Become Fluent on the iPad | Technology & Learning

My Ten Most Used Apps to Become Fluent on the iPad | Technology & Learning | In the Library and out in the world | Scoop.it

By Silvia Rosenthal Tolisano

 

"Fluency on the iPad, like language fluency, does not necessarily come natural to most people. Unless you grow up in a language, as  your mother tongue,  and you acquire speaking this language unconsciously as a baby and child, it will require an effort (to various degrees) on your part to learn to become fluent in that language. Becoming fluent on the iPad requires a conscious effort and time as well."

Advocacy for Your School Library Helps All School Libraries | In the Library and out in the world | Scoop.it

A teacher librarian's story......I explain to him that it is vital that librarians shout about all the wonderful activities happening in their library. I do just that with this blog, the library website, twitter, email blasts, discussions with my principal, notices in the daily memo and articles in the school monthly newsletter. Since I became a librarian, I have used whatever media was available to advertise the library. I had to.

How To Use Evernote: The Missing Manual

Ken's Key Takeaway:

I knew about the OCR in photos.  I did not know about the OCR .pdf function.  Awesome!

Ken

 

 

Are you a digital packrat? Are you in need of a searchable repository for everything you want to recall later? Does the idea of automatic OCR (Optical Character Recognition) for all your scanned PDFs get you excited in a way only seriously organised people could ever understand? If so, Evernote is the tool you need right now – and we’ve got the perfect manual to get you started using it like a professional.

Empathy at All Ages and Stages

Empathy at All Ages and Stages | In the Library and out in the world | Scoop.it

Empathy is everywhere at Georgetown Day School, from the kindergarteners earnestly trading “peace roses” to resolve peer conflicts to the fifth graders spiritedly debating food access in impoverished DC communities. The school’s comprehensive social curriculum, which encompasses all 1000 of the pre-K to 12th grade students, proves that it is indeed possible to meaningfully teach empathy at any age.

Starting as young as four, GDS students practice mediating conflicts by focusing on their friends’ perspectives, learning to put themselves in others’ metaphorical Velcro sneakers.
