How our schools are robbing students of the joy of reading

Books should be a pleasure in themselves, not merely a prompt for study.

SCIS's curator insight, December 12, 2012 7:26 PM

'By mining and scouring books for issues and focusing on matters of suitability rather than substance, we in fact fail to teach young people how to read and what reading is for and the ways literature can enlighten, inspire and above all give pleasure.'

Raising Young Critical Thinkers in the Digital Age

Raising Young Critical Thinkers in the Digital Age | Informed Teacher Librarianship | Scoop.it
Teaching kids how to curate information and discern what's trustworthy from what's bogus is a really important lesson for parents nowadays.

Karen Bonanno's curator insight, December 14, 2012 7:06 PM

This parent states, "So in this age of information at out fingertips, parents have one more important skill to teach their kids: how to be discerning".

 

My insight is that not all parents would be in a position to be able to teach their child this skill. Having access to a teacher librarian certainly would help to support the parents in this worthy endeavour.

Elizabeth Hutchinson's curator insight, December 15, 2012 4:06 AM
Elizabeth Hutchinson's comment, Today, 9:03 AMI agree but do parents or teachers realise that school librarians have these skills and are able to teach them? I wish more people understood our skills!  
BookChook's curator insight, December 15, 2012 3:26 PM

Visual literacy is an important component of digital literacy - and teaching kids to be discerning about what they do online is one of the most important skills of all.

Karin Gitchel's curator insight, January 22, 2013 9:42 PM

I've always been a huge promoter of putting what you want out there, and being aware of what your footprint.  Similar presenation given to #etmooc yesterday, but powerful enough to share again.

 

My favorite image is the image of the 80's guy with all the tech surounding him to the simplicity of a cell phone containing it all. "We've come a long way..." and for that I am grateful.

NaNoWriMo: what to do next [in your library] | Library as Incubator Project | Informed Teacher Librarianship | Scoop.it

Can you believe we’re nearing the finish of National Novel Writing Month?! As Wrimos scramble to reach their 50,000 word goal, we’ve been talking about the myriad ways that writers (and really, artists of all kinds) can use their libraries (local and digital) to inspire and inform their projects.

Our NaNoWriMo series touches on a lot of topics, from inspiration to research to tips for using your library to stave off or conquer writer’s block. So it seemed only appropriate that our final two posts in the series should touch on ways for Wrimos to make excellent use of their libraries after the writing logs are updated for the last time.
