Colorado's Highly Effective School Library Program (HESLP) Rubric

Colorado's Highly Effective School Library Program (HESLP) Rubric | Infobits | Scoop.it

The new HESLP rubric is designed to foster partnerships and collaborations based on mutual support and ongoing dialogue between teacher-librarians and their administrators.
This revised rubric highlights student-centered learning, emphasized in the Colorado Academic and Common Core Standards. Teacher-librarians can use the rubric to identify where they can have a greater impact on student learning.
This 2016 rubric represents a change in thinking about how teacher-librarians and library programs are viewed and valued. This rubric emphasizes teacher leadership and values collaboration among administrators, staff, students and the community—shifting the view from that of a support role to that of a guide for staff and students to transform learning practice. Most importantly, it also opens the conversation for how teachers and teacher-librarians are designing student-centric learning opportunities and collecting evidence of their impact on student learning.


Via lyn_hay, Lourense Das
Sharon Gullett's insight:

This rubric uses the performance scale of Basic - Partially Proficient - Proficient - Accomplished - Exemplary, with descriptors of each level. I think this can be used to assist teacher librarians in developing their role statement and informing their professional learning plan for the year. It is certainly a powerful document to help inform a conversation between a TL and their principal, particularly with regard to their role as a teacher.

"5 Trends that Bend: Tech trajectories that will change everything" - Jason Ohler

"5 Trends that Bend: Tech trajectories that will change everything" - Jason Ohler | Infobits | Scoop.it

Jason Ohler comments on an article by Pamela DeLoatch in Edudemic :

 

"I just finished my next book, 4 Lectures for the Future. One "lecture" is "5 Trends that Bend- Tech trajectories that will change everything." I was going after foundational shifts, rather than specific technologies. The five I focus on (and there are more certainly, but time and space didn't allow me to address them) are: Big Data, Immersive Realty (and combining RL with the second home on the other end our smart devices), The Semantic Web (Webs 3 and 4, aka, the web of data and the web of things), xTreme BYOD (all the wearable, portable stuff that is emerging), and Transmedia Storytelling (a phenomenon that is infused in the commercial world, but not in education). I would be curious to know what others would put in their top 5. If I had time for a 6th and 7th, they would have been neuro-enhancing technology (there are "mat hats" that improve the math scores of those who wear them) and singularity, the blending of carbon (people) and silicon (a metaphor for digital technology) to the point where they become symbiotic and, ultimately, indistinguishable.

BTW- one of my favorite activities to do with students is called, "You're In Charge." I put them in charge of developing policy for existing and emerging tech. I pitch them the math hat, and ask, "Should we allow them in school? Under what conditions?" The conversations that ensue are fabulous."

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, January 24, 2015 3:23 AM

It's interesting to see that content curation is evolving from an opportunity to a necessity as communication shifts from traditional methods (PR, advertising, old-style SEO...) to new ones (content marketing, inbound marketing, social media...). In this new world of communication many things have changed and professionals or companies who want to get heard need to consider this question:


Do people listen to you because they have to or because they want to?


As my friend Steve Rosenbaum, author of Curation Nation, puts it in his latest book, Curate This, we can't rely anymore on captive audiences. Consumers filter out spammy messages which is why, to be heard, we have to curate or die.

6th Grade Speed Dating Genres

6th Grade Speed Dating Genres | Infobits | Scoop.it

We're speed dating this week. Several 6th grade teachers want their students to explore different fiction genres. I decided to make some personal ads (pictured above) for different genres or subgenres. I already had resources lists in Destiny for these genres, so it made it easy. We have eleven tables, which we'll load with books and an ad. Students will have to rotate through at least 4 tables. They'll be discussing genres in class, but I made an exit ticket so I can track which are the most popular (I still have one more book order to place.) If you're interested, here's a link to the ads, and a link to the exit ticket. The ads document has the titles listed separately at the end, to make it easier for my aides to cut them out! :)

DIY Toolkit: How To Make An Infographic :: Soraya Shockley, Teresa Chin | Infobits | Scoop.it
SHOW, DON’T TELL.  That’s the general idea of infographics, which use visuals to make numbers/stats/processes easier to understand. While it’s easy to enjoy a well crafted infographic, creating one can be challenging. What type of visual fits your data? How should you style your graphic? What tools can you use to create infographics without starting from scratch?

Making an infographic is a multistep process, so we’ll break this tutorial into two parts. In this lesson, we’ll walk you through the basics of making your own infographic, depending on the data at hand.

In an ICT integrated society, it is important that people are information literate. That means being able to search for and analyse information for their benefits. As websites on the Internet become more popular teachers need to teach their students the right skills and knowledge so that their students are able to become information literate. Any guide therefore, that will assist teachers in doing so is worth using as a resource as reference for both teachers and students to use.
