I watched my husband very successfully flip his classroom as an instructor.  As for me?  Suggestions for librarians were just what I needed.

Elizabeth Hutchinson's comment, November 15, 2013 2:38 AM
Maybe it is about time we librarians workout how to do this. If anyone wants to talk about how let me know. Not that I have any idea but talking about it may help point us in the right direction.

Hundreds of exhibitors promoted their wares on the floor at Educause 2013, giving attendees a look at the latest and greatest education technology solutions. If you couldn't make it, believe us when we say that there was a lot to take in—so much, in fact, that even those who did make it probably didn't see everything. 

 

From SPOCs and MOOCs to big data and personalization, and in no particular order, we put together the following list of 10 things to note at this year's event.

The Most Important Lesson Schools Can Teach Kids About Reading: It's Fun

Yes, strong literacy skills help students get good grades and, eventually, good jobs. But schools shouldn't forget to emphasize the joy of getting lost in a book.

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, November 12, 2013 2:23 PM

While I wholeheartedly agree with this blog post about instilling a LOVE for reading as an absolute essential, I have issue with Arne Duncan's mandate to public schools to "greatly accelerate the rate of progress" and the "urgent moral and economic imperative that our schools do a better job..." 

As articles I've scooped earlier this month point out, POVERTY is behind the achievement gap. We have a majority of impoverished children in public schools for the first time. I believe in allowing students to "get lost in a book" but I also understand that I am sometimes fighting a very difficult battle if those students are worried about their next meal, if they're going to be evicted, or living on their own because the parent(s) are working. That's just something I will keep in my back pocket as I work to implement this "most important" lesson.

Motivated by a shared inquiry question, a team of librarians at Deerfield High School (Illinois) gathered data to support a push to integrate information literacy skills into the curriculum, and developed a fruitful collaboration with other departments resulting in a co-taught Medieval narrative project. Among other important outcomes: a change in student perceptions about the role of school librarians.

Six Reasons Why Kids Should Know How to Blog | Integrating Technology and Curriculum | Scoop.it

In the digital age, kids need to have an understanding of what it means to be a responsible digital citizen. They need to learn the technical how-to’s, as well as a more global comprehension of how to navigate the online world. To that end, Melbourne educator Jenny Luca made a commitment to help her students start blogging and to create ePortfolios. Here are six reasons why, at her school, these skills are now a high priority.
