I Want YOU! Free, Virtually, & Global | The Daring Librarian | Informed Teacher Librarianship | Scoop.it
No expert is going to visit your school and tell you how to be a TL in the future. So, don't wait till the big expert comes to town with the most convenient workshop. Fierce librarians cannot wait for the annual conference.

Campaign to convince us to abandon our ebook readers...Gruen Planet ABC TV | Informed Teacher Librarianship | Scoop.it

If you are a watcher of ABC's Gruen Planet you'll be familiar with the segment called 'The Brief' where advertising agencies are asked to prepare a pitch to sell an unsellable topic. Last week they featured a campaign to convince us to abandon our e-book readers and only read books made of paper.

I love the Gruen Transfer and Gruen Planet, wish they had it on US television. Have to have friends from Australia send me the DVDs when they come out. They are brilliant.

Re-engaging Adolescent Readers and Writers with Meaningful Texts | Random House for High School Teachers

Re-engaging Adolescent Readers and Writers with Meaningful Texts | Random House for High School Teachers | Informed Teacher Librarianship | Scoop.it

When teens considered reluctant readers get hooked into an early morning writing class then someone is doing something very right.

"What disrupted the conventional wisdom about adolescents and their lack of enthusiasm for school in general and for writing in particular? We believe an important element was our use of the texts of popular culture—graphic novels, anime, internet sources, and music—as tools to motivate and inspire creativity (Frey and Fisher, 2004). Although our class was focused on writing, our students engaged every day with nontraditional texts selected to spark interest and to serve as mentor texts for their writing. We debated content and then analyzed the ways in which artists and writers conveyed their points of view in powerful ways."

Getting kids to really focus on what exactly they are searching for, and then be able to further distill idea into a few key specific search terms is a skill that we must teach students, and we have to do it over and over again.

The Semantic Web: Data linked to data = New insights | Informed Teacher Librarianship | Scoop.it

"Jim Hendler takes us on a journey into this semantic web, unpacking related terms such as Web 3.0, and exploring its potential for government.

 

He emphasises the importance of linked open government data, and points to some useful tools and demos of how linked data can be used to create new insights.

 

The excitement of the data web is better understanding of the world we live in through what’s being collected about it in the information space".

What distinguishes a truly vibrant school library program from one that is mediocre at best? | Informed Teacher Librarianship | Scoop.it

Deep and meaningful learning is tremendously difficult. The landscape of true inquiry is littered with false starts, uncertainty, blind alleys, and cognitive dissonance. We show the very best of care for our students when we openly acknowledge this fact and help them through the uncertainty.

What Popular Culture is Telling Us About Libraries and Why We Should Listen | Backtalk

What Popular Culture is Telling Us About Libraries and Why We Should Listen | Backtalk | Informed Teacher Librarianship | Scoop.it

Libraries and librarians are a regular occurrence in popular culture. From the occasional commercial to television and film, libraries pop up pretty frequently in any format you can imagine. Comics are dedicated to them, superheroes are evolved from them, songs are sung in them, and hellmouths are located underneath them. Libraries are a ubiquitous part of our culture, but are we listening to our audience? We need to look at how the public and culture at large are portraying libraries, listen to how they really perceive the library, and latch on to those ideas to further our place in society...
