Trasformar euna presentazione in una storia da raccontare: lo sforzo più complesso!

Nathan Schultz's curator insight, November 25, 2015 4:22 PM

This presentations clearly explains what makes a good story - you need to devise conflict, develop characters and add efficient details.  I enjoy this presentation because it explains the details of storywriting with a variety of interesting visuals, which makes it more entertaining to read.

The Librarian in the Middle: Sip and See Our New Books

The Librarian in the Middle: Sip and See Our New Books | Information for Librarians | Scoop.it

Via Mary Reilley Clark
Sandra Carswell's insight:

I think I'll try this with books that cover the last grading period content. Research is the big push in our curriculum the last 6 weeks and there isn't enough of the library/librarian to go around. Perhaps some of the teachers will choose to use the books from the library in their classrooms instead of going to the computer labs. (There aren't enough of them to go around either.)

Plagiarism and the link: How the web makes attribution easier -- and more complicated

Plagiarism and the link: How the web makes attribution easier -- and more complicated | Information for Librarians | Scoop.it
The controversy over writer Nate Thayer’s failure to credit his sources, which some alleged amounted to plagiarism, is just part of an ongoing debate over how we use — and give credit for — information in a digital age.

 

The problem is that while adding hyperlinks is a great way of avoiding a charge of plagiarism — something that might have helped Fox News opinion writer Juan Williams and other alleged plagiarists — there is no accepted protocol for how or where to add those links, or how much content someone can cut and paste into their story or blog post without crossing the line from borrowing into plagiarism or copyright infringement.


Via Dennis T OConnor
Sandra Carswell's insight:

This is also an important topic for librarians to address. We teach our students to cite sources and give attribution to the creators of materials they use in their projects. Is a link enough? And yes, just how much can you quote without losing your own voice?

Paige Jaeger 's comment, April 11, 2013 8:31 AM
As a hyperlink embedder, this is a timely post for introspection! Everyone should stop, read, and contemplate whether they are remaining true to the source. I'd like to think I have been, but it's time to reflect and inspect!

You've arrived at the tip of the iceberg. There's a tremendous amount of free content, helpful resources and ideas on this site for improving the array of 21st Century Skills we call information fluency (others call it information literacy).

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, April 5, 2013 3:36 PM

It may be ironic that it takes significant search skills to find the wealth of information about informaiton fluency packed into the 21CIF website. To open doors to content, this page will introduce you to hyperlinked content that will help you to teach students how to locate, evaluate, and ethically use digital information. 


Curious?  Give it a click!
