March Madness in the Library

March Madness in the Library | inquiryinlibrarysetting | Scoop.it

Someone on LM_NET asked about doing a March Madness activity in the library. Here's how we do ours:

 

Each year has a theme. We've done:

 

Favorite seriesBest book into movieFavorite literary hero or villain

 

We start with a Sweet 16 round. We post the brackets in our large windows that face out onto the campus. Be sure to post the entire bracket since some students won't be familiar with the process! We just put placeholders in for the upcoming brackets: Elite 8, Final 4 and Championship round.

 

Now for the voting! We use Google Forms, and you should, too! It's so easy to create them. We leave each voting bracket open for a week, and each day we print the graphs created by the Forms that show which book is leading. We do allow students to vote more than once since some students are so excited about "their" book.  

 

We promote March Madness with the help of our student TV channel.  The news crew records in front of the display, or we just send them daily updates that they read. We usually see an uptick in voting immediately after the news airs during homeroom.

 

Here is a link to a folder with more photos of our windows and some of the forms.  This is by far one of our students' favorite activities and generates a lot of book discussion on campus. It does take a bit of time to create the initial display, as we have to find cover images for all the books. Once you have those, it should be an easy job for a student aide or volunteer to update the brackets. Google Forms could not be easier, so if you're not using it now, go spend a few minutes playing with it! 

 

Please let me know in the comments if you have any questions.

Library Eye Candy from Joyce Valenza!

Library Eye Candy from Joyce Valenza! | inquiryinlibrarysetting | Scoop.it

Joyce Valenza writes: "There’s redecorating and there’s just plain old decorating.

When it comes time for a bit of library refreshing, in the form of posters and bulletin boards, there are so many wonderful shared options. In the spirit of fall refreshing, I thought I’d refresh on of my posts, Fall decorating: a round-up of smart (and free) posters, from a few years back.

As I mentioned back then, every year, as we move back into our libraries and classrooms, we search for meaningful, inspiring, attractive visuals to fill our display cases, to grace our bulletin boards, to embed on our websites and most importantly, to engage and inspire those who visit."

7 characteristics of a digital mindset

7 characteristics of a digital mindset | inquiryinlibrarysetting | Scoop.it
An individual with a digital mindset understands the power of technology to democratize scale and speed up every form of interaction and action

 

Growth Mindset

Carol Dweck, in her research, differentiated between Fixed Mindset and Growth Mindset, and how these linked to people’s perception of their own abilities. Those with a fixed mindset believe that intelligence is static, and this can become an obstacle to change in behavior. This in turn makes it difficult for them to be learning agile or to adjust to a rapidly changing and ambiguous world. On the other hand, people with a growth mindset are likely to take every opportunity to pull the resources they need to perform better. They are usually the ones to volunteer information, ask questions and try out new ways of doing things. It cannot be argued that the digital world calls for constant exploration, experimentation and learning. And individuals with a growth mindset are more likely to put in extra effort to learn new things, take charge of their own learning, and possess a resilience that helps them to overcome challenges.

Agile Approach

Being agile is more than just adapting to change. In the age of disruptive tech, we must be able to foresee and change before the need to change arises. Agility in this context encompasses the skill of being able to scan the landscape of one's domain of work and organizational ecosystem, and keeping pace with what is happening at the edges to remain relevant. In the digital era, this would mean being comfortable with technology, seeing change as an opportunity, and accepting the new ways of working without feeling threatened.

This article articulates something I have felt for a long, long time. That drill-and-practice reading, emphasis on close-reading, and leveled libraries (and the restrictive practice of limiting a child's reading choice) is doing way more harm than good - and we have the reading scores to prove it. THIS IS WHY LIBRARIANS ARE SO IMPORTANT, folks. We have always focused on the "value of the text," of leading the reader to a book in which they show interest, the value of the story to transform thinking. This is a must read.

Role Of Teachers | Key Findings | www.wise-qatar.org | Coaching | Learning To Learn | ICT | eSkills | inquiryinlibrarysetting | Scoop.it

The numbers reported in the “School in 2030” survey appear to tell a dominant story, one that involves drastic change and a forward-looking perspective regarding the future form that the educational system will take. While innovation is a prevailing theme in the discussion about the future of school, it is important not to confuse the need for innovation with the need for change.

 

As Noam Chomsky posits, “what we’re in need of is reversing the process of undermining what is positive about the educational system. We want to resist that and at the same time develop approaches which will improve on it as a tool, a commitment”. While there are many merits to forward evolution in education, it is important to also consider the lessons that can also be learned from looking back.

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.

How to solve a difficult problem: Work on it as long and as hard as you can. When you run into an issue that you can not figure out, walk away and do something completely different. Get a good nights rest.

After waking up or upon working on something different, you will unexpectedly get that aha moment where the answer or possible answers come to you.

 

Do not waste time struggling with an issue, let your subconscious kick in and help you figure it out.

Sylvianne Parent's curator insight, September 6, 2015 1:09 PM

Lorsque les élèves éprouvent de grandes difficultés à l'école, il est primordial de leur enseigner à développer un esprit de croissance personnelle axé sur les efforts et les défis personnels. Le concept de growth mindset est vraiment intéressant pour illustrer aux enfants que l'intelligence et le succès n'est pas fixe mais relié aux efforts aux tentatives et aux réajustements. Voir Carole DWECK l'auteure de ce concept.

Why tablets are failing miserably in higher education

Why tablets are failing miserably in higher education | inquiryinlibrarysetting | Scoop.it

Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge
