The Early Literacy Shift: New Words, New Media, New Friends

The Early Literacy Shift: New Words, New Media, New Friends | Readnlearn | Scoop.it

And when I had to explain why iPod didn’t start with an upper case letter the way proper nouns usually did, well, I decided all of the rules were up for grabs. The changes I have mentioned are rather superficial, but they are indicators of a large shift that has been taking place in the way that I teach literacy.

Sabrina Faulkner's curator insight, September 19, 2013 9:35 PM

Having students use technology in many different ways is a great idea. My children enjoy being able to video chat and skype with their daddy because he is overseas, and they study different words or lessons that they are going over to not only keep him involved but also so they can have the experience of having their daddy help them with school work as well.

Now available: IFLA Statement on Libraries and Development

Now available: IFLA Statement on Libraries and Development | Readnlearn | Scoop.it

IFLA is pleased to announce the publication of a Statement on Libraries and Development. The IFLA Governing Board approved the Statement on the 16th of August 2013. The UN is currently reviewing both the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS), which includes the Internet Governance Forum (IGF). In the past decade IFLA has engaged with both processes in a variety of ways, from shaping documents and policies to reporting on implementation progress through public workshops and consultations. Reports on the MDGs and WSIS are due to be delivered to the UN Secretary General in 2015 and will influence the composition of any new UN development framework. IFLA is already joined the discussion about what a framework should look like, and will continue to engage in the process as it matures. The new statement sets out a clear vision of how libraries contribute to development, and urges policymakers and development practitioners to leverage libraries.
