omri kagan's curator insight, December 13, 2013 11:13 AM

This amazing site provides electonic tutoring in several subject areas. It is a free service that is both visual and auditory.  This site is rare in that it teaches topics that range from elementary through post-secondary level material.  

Daniel Thurmond's curator insight, April 13, 8:21 AM

This tool is great for both reinforcement of topics or even for primary student learning. It is a resource where a huge number of concepts are taught by an instructor voicing over the video. The instruction is sound and easy to understand. It could be used to solidify a concept or be the students first encounter with the topic. It can be used at the infusion level but mostly will be used at the adoption or adaption level. 

omri kagan's curator insight, July 16, 10:41 AM

 

Do you earn better from videos?  Did you have a bad day in class and couldn't pay attention?  Did you not understand the content the way that I presented it?  

 

Visit the Khan Academy and you will find an extensive collection of excellent video tutorials about geometry as well as several other topics.  The service is free!  

 

* Please communicate with one another about the ways that you are able to use this resource effectively.  Let this learning community know about any specific uses that worked very well in your classroom so that we can all share our best ideas as we improve teaching practices and student outcomes.  *

Serendipitous, #informal learning through some ages / Inge de Waard

Serendipitous, #informal learning through some ages / Inge de Waard | Information Specialist Training | Scoop.it

Informal learning has been an important self-constructing force throughout the ages. At present it gains interest with the increase of online learning options (eg. MOOCs in all forms and formats), and it also becomes more visible through the concept of learner-centered learning, personal learning environment... So I picked up a mail from years ago, and revisited it with some of which I learned now. For I wonder how much of informal learning is actually new, in the face of technology I mean.

Free Photos That Don't Suck · Pexels | Information Specialist Training | Scoop.it

Pexels · Free Photo Search with over 800 Photos And that's really its main disadvantage; a very small number of images. Having said that, they are exceptionally good quality, with an emphasis on computers and sports. It's worth a look, just to see what's out there, but you'll be lucky to find exactly what you're after. [from Phil Bradley's weblog: http://bit.ly/1oJK9mo]

LIBRARIAN AS FUTURIST: Changing the Way Libraries Think About the Future - The Ubiquitous Librarian - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Information Specialist Training | Scoop.it

Brian Mathews recently published an essay in portal. It explores the mindset (and toolkit) of futurists and attempts to connect that to libraries. I blogged about it earlier with the idea of “change literacy” which is a fascinating concept.

FEATURE - Makerbot Replicator 2: 3D Printing Tips From an Early Adopter

FEATURE - Makerbot Replicator 2: 3D Printing Tips From an Early Adopter | Information Specialist Training | Scoop.it

3D printers are all the rage in public libraries, but they are just starting to creep into the academic sphere. At Penfield Library, which is at the State University of New York (SUNY)–Oswego, we have set up a successful 3D printing program using a MakerBot Replicator 2. SUNY–Oswego is a comprehensive 4-year college on the shore of Lake Ontario. Most of our students are undergraduates, but we offer a few master’s programs. Our engineering program is just getting started, and it currently only has courses in software and electrical engineering. We have a robust technology program, which is part of the university’s School of Education. Both the engineering and technology programs have their own 3D printers; however, students must be a part of those programs to use them. The 3D printer at Penfield Library is open to all.

Capira Integrates StackMap into Mobile App - The Digital Shift

Capira Integrates StackMap into Mobile App - The Digital Shift | Information Specialist Training | Scoop.it

Library software and mobile app developer Capira Technologies this week announced an integration with StackMap, a bookshelf visualization platform that helps guide patrons directly to the location of books and other materials in the library. Using the app, patrons will be able to search for and discover items in a library’s catalog, and with one click, view a detailed map of their library’s floor plan that highlights the shelf location of their selected item. The integration is currently being tested by Hampton Library in Bridgehampton, NY, and is expected to be widely available as a Capira service option for Apple iOS devices by July 1, and for Android devices by July 30.

Deutsche Neuerscheinungen mit Bibsonomy und DNB verwalten / Eric Steinhauer | Information Specialist Training | Scoop.it

Wer in seinem Fachgebiet auf dem Laufenden bleiben möchte, kommt nicht umhin, die laufenden Neuerscheinungen zu sichten. Dabei ist es nicht nur mühsam, sich durch Verlagsprospekte zu arbeiten. Viel lästiger ist die Dokumentation und Sicherung der Funde. Ausdrucke? Kopien? Seiten aus Prospekten reißen? Das Material im Aktenordner aufbewahren?

Hier gibt es einen einfachen und effektiven Weg, um Neuerscheinungen zu sichten und zu dokumentieren.

Jus Swissbib Rechtsdatenbank

Jus Swissbib Rechtsdatenbank | Information Specialist Training | Scoop.it

Jusbib ist ein Metakatalog von Datensätzen aus Schweizer Rechtsbibliotheken und weiteren relevanten Beständen der juristischen Literatur. Das Interface und die Suchfunktionalitäten von Jusbib entsprechen jenen von Swissbib.

Zusätzlich können die Datensätze mittels einer einheitlichen Rechtsklassifikation abgefragt werden; es handelt sich um die mehrsprachige systematische Klassifikation des Schweizerischen Instituts für Rechtsvergleichung.

Das Projekt Jusbib wurde von der Vereinigung der juristischen Bibliotheken der Schweiz gestartet und in enger Zusammenarbeit mit dem Team von Swissbib durchgeführt. Es erhält eine finanzielle Unterstützung des Bundesamtes für Justiz und des Vereins eJustice.CH.

Semantic web technologies for the Dresden university library catalogue

Semantic web technologies for the Dresden university library catalogue | Information Specialist Training | Scoop.it

An der Sächsischen Landesbibliothek – Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Dresden (SLUB) wurde mit semantischer Technologie eine neuartig komfortable Katalogsuche entwickelt.

Unsere Suche ist mehrsprachig. Wenn Sie zum Beispiel „Automatikgetriebe“ eingeben, erhalten Sie auch Treffer auf Englisch oder Polnisch. Außerdem übersetzt SLUBsemantics von der Alltagssprache in die Fachsprache und umgekehrt. Sie suchen „Gammelfleisch“ und erhalten alles zum Thema Lebensmittelsicherheit. Oder Sie geben „Adipositas“ ein und bekommen Treffer zu Übergewicht und Fettsucht. Das funktioniert bei der eindimensionalen String-Suche im normalen Katalog nicht.
Und: SLUBsemantics löst sprachliche Mehrdeutigkeiten auf. Wenn Sie „Python“ eingeben, können Sie ja die Schlange, die Programmiersprache oder die Komikergruppe Monty Python meinen. Normale Kataloge liefern alle Treffer durcheinander, bei uns werden die Treffer sortiert – in die Bereiche Biologie, Informatik und Film.

Digital Inclusion Survey | American Library Association (ALA)

Digital Inclusion Survey | American Library Association (ALA) | Information Specialist Training | Scoop.it

The American Library Association (ALA) released the “Digital Inclusion Survey,” a study created in partnership with its Office for Research and Statistics (ORS) and the Information Policy & Access Center (iPAC)at the University of Maryland. It was funded by IMLS (Institute of Museum and Library Services).

The study found that almost 100% of U.S. public libraries provide workforce development training programs, online resources for finding jobs, aid in completing government forms, and training on technology skills. Almost all libraries also offer free public access to Wi-Fi and online homework help to students. Now 90% of libraries lend ebooks, up from 76% in the previous survey.

Although progress in technology offerings has been made, rural libraries are adapting at a slower pace. For example, less than two-thirds of rural libraries have access to IT staff.
