Student Learning through School Libraries: | Information Literacy | Scoop.it
School libraries help students learn...

This is what I believe. And my research (and the research of many others!) supports this belief.

I use this blog to share new research and literature highlighting the many ways school libraries support teaching and learning in schools, with a particular focus on curating research findings on the impact of school libraries on student learning, and advocating for the teacher librarianship profession.

A Must Know Google Scholar Tip for Researchers and Educators ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Must Know Google Scholar Tip for Researchers and Educators ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Information Literacy | Scoop.it
Similar to Google Alerts I covered in an earlier post, Google Scholar also has an "alert" feature that allows users to keep updated about the topics, news, and authors that interest them. Google scholar Alert is particularly useful for student researchers who are doing research around a topic area and want to have access to the latest and recent output about it. Creating an alert on Google Scholar will enable you to receive emails with updates and new releases about your alert. For instance, let's say your research topic is game-based learning and that one of the established authors you want to make sure to read his newest updates in this area is James Paul Gee. You can go ahead and create two alerts using the following key phrases : game-based learning, and James Paul Gee. From the time you create these alerts, anything published on Google Scholar with these two phrases in it will come directly to your inbox.

Via John Evans
SLS Guernsey's insight:

Everyone who is studying should know about Google Alerts. A very useful tool to keep you very up to date.

Chatrooms and polling services provide good ways to hear from all of the students in a classroom. These kind of tools allow shy students to ask questions and share comments.
