Buffer I came across a good post from JuastAdandAk the other day. it covers many of the the things we talk about on the blog and podcast. What I really liked though is their break down of the five core steps of curation (also the graphic is great as well) 1. Find : Track other digital curators to emulate / learn from. I had a call the other day with someone asking if we had a what I consider a listening platform in our tool. We don’t and we haven’t built on for 2 simple reasons. It’s easy (beyond easy) …

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 29, 10:15 PM

The summer reading slump...as teachers we know that learners will lose skills if they do not use them during the summer. This article (which includes a lengthy infographic) shares statistics about what may happen over one summer (and also shares long- term consequences).

Did you know that a learner at the end of Grade 6 whom has experienced summer learning loss over the years may be 2 years behind their peers?

Or that 2.6 months of math skills are lost over the summer?

Many schools are starting to prepare summer packets with the hope that learners will complete them over the summer. You may find that information in this infographic is worth sharing with parents. They may not be aware of the consequences of how much summer learning loss may impact their child.

Instead of chasing online learning K12 should concentrate on blended learning.

Via EDTC@UTB
Dr. Laura Sheneman's insight:

Librarians, you can think of using a blended model for some of the professional development you offer.  Possibly you begin a workshop with some face to face time.  Then move online to continue your conversation through Edmodo, a blog, a Facebook page, etc.  Later, you can consider meeting again face to face to showcase the learning.

Good Professional Development Mirrors Good Teaching

Good Professional Development Mirrors Good Teaching | Information Powerhouses | Scoop.it
“I went to a workshop on active learning, and we just sat and listened all day!”

“I attended a ‘differentiated instruction’ seminar, and we all did the same thing at the same time!”

“Why can’t we ever get professional development days that actually use good instructional practices?”

These kinds of comments, all too commonly voiced by teachers, underscore one of the greatest frustrations teachers have with professional development. Often, professional development that claims to be all about great teaching and learning doesn’t employ the very strategies it claims to promote. This can have some significant negative impacts. Teachers may question the value of the strategies being taught, feel devalued themselves, and quickly shut down. It doesn’t take long in a PD setting like this before teachers display all of the typical characteristics of disengaged learners: texting, playing games on their phones, having side conversations, and even being actively disruptive.

So, perhaps you’re a teacher leader or administrator who will be leading professional development for colleagues. Or, perhaps you are looking to hire a consultant to lead adult learning in your school or district. What are some key elements of effective professional development? Not surprisingly, they are the same kinds of qualities we hope to see employed in classrooms with students. If you are leading professional development yourself, consider how these elements might strengthen your work. If you are bringing in an outside consultant, you might ask questions about these elements.

Via Miloš Bajčetić
Dr. Laura Sheneman's insight:

Librarians, be sure to remember you are modeling "good teaching" whenever you lead professional development on campus.  Think about your adult learners' needs.
