Supporting a seamless learning environment

Supporting a seamless learning environment | Information Science | Scoop.it
This week, the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) released new data showing that the most powerful demographic predictor of library card ownership is poverty—more than 60 percent of children living below the poverty level did not have a public library card. Impoverished children often fall behind in school as they face challenges obtaining reading materials, accessing high-speed Internet and finding reliable information online.

toraki's curator insight, Today, 6:46 AM

Ας προσέξουμε αυτό:

 

"The internet offers a route to a mass of random and often inaccurate information. The filter of expertise, whether of a librarian or professional publisher, is absent. Even when mediated by a library portal, internet searching is a solitary experience, and to assume that actual libraries can be supplanted by virtual ones is premature. Both local historians and academic researchers rely on paper and print. Perhaps even more important, libraries offer human contact and personal support that the internet has not yet managed to replicate."

 

Αλλά και αυτό που αφορά τις εκλογές όπου κι αν γίνονται:

 

"Finally – isn’t this election about democracy? Libraries are a natural home for local pressure groups and community forums, while the internet can be a place of trending hashtags and the zeitgeist as bully. Let’s hope that these unsung havens of study and self-actualisation don’t suffer yet again at the hands of our political leaders."
