Why tablets are failing miserably in higher education

Why tablets are failing miserably in higher education | inquiryinlibrarysetting | Scoop.it
While Apple and Google are fighting a FUD war for the hearts and minds of K-12 campuses, there's one area of education that neither has been able to penetrate with success: higher ed. Specifically, I'm referring to the conglomerate of colleges and universities across the US (and likely abroad).

Definitely somethings for high schools to consider before making large scale purchases.

Five lessons, each is differentiated as Beginner / Intermediate / Advanced. Mapped to three sets of national standards. Excellent way to get started teaching search skills. (I know there's no room in your curriculum to do this. Perhaps that's what's wrong with your curriculum?)Seize the opportunity to help your students develop real 21st Century Skills.

I like that it includes AASL Standards.  We must start teaching technology standards in every class.

lyn_hay's curator insight, May 12, 4:06 AM

This is such a powerful 5 minute video on the impact of the school library on students' reading ability and their motivation and interest in reading. It also demonstrates the power of having a school principal with a teacher librarianship background. The claims made by these school community members is backed up by school-based data and the improvement in students' behaviour as readers and literary learners.

School Libraries | State of America's Libraries Report 2014

School Libraries | State of America's Libraries Report 2014 | inquiryinlibrarysetting | Scoop.it
The School Libraries section of the 2014 State of America's Libraries Report provides an overview of the top school library trends of the past year.
School libraries are at a critical point: Budget and testing pressures have led to decisions to eliminate or deprofessionalize school libraries, but the increased emphasis on college and career readiness and the integration of technology makes them more critical than ever. School librarians’ collaboration with other educators is key to literacy and imlementation of Common Core State Standards. The American Library Association (ALA) is undertaking an advocacy campaign for school libraries that sets goals in five critical areas.

lyn_hay's curator insight, March 2, 1:01 AM

Provides an insight into the expectations of college/university lecturers when designing inquiry-based assignments for students. An analysis of the elements of these assignments revealed that academics design assignments for 1st year university students with the expectation that these students bring with them an existing set of understandings, skills and dispositions with regard to 'researching assignments'. The study identifies a number of ways teacher librarians could be targeting student skill development. A lot of these findings support the research evidence published by Kuhlthau re students' information seeking and knowledge building experiences, and the range of instructional interventions she suggests while students undertake inquiry projects.
