University. School. Death of the textbook? So where sits the library?

University.  School. Death of the textbook? So where sits the library? | Digging on the Digital: Library and Learning Technology | Scoop.it
63% of college students and 69% of high school students believe that traditional textbooks will be phased out in the next five years.

Sue Osborne's insight:

The Library sits in the middle, assisting the student in acessing the digital content and teaching the critical thinking skills required to navigate such content. Also, in helping students group together content and resources in a coherent, relevant way. Libraries will do what they have always done - adapt. Books are books, regardless of format. Now is the time for libraries to take themselves to the students, rather than waiting for the students to come to them. The "right now" library service is the way of the future, but there is always a curation and dissemination role too if we put ourselves at the front line (instead of in the back room).

Should libraries continue to stock 'copies' of textbooks?  Guess it must be open-source, or whole site licence?

Anne Whisken's comment, July 7, 2013 6:27 PM
Great summary Sue. Where do you see the concept of 'reference desk' sitting in the future school library?

Do you have iPads in your classroom? Are you getting some this year? 

I have been doing a lot of traveling these past couple months. I attended
the ISTE conference and gave a couple poster sessions. I also
delivered professional development in my own district and a week long class
in Arizona. One topic that is getting left behind in all this technology is
coding. The Hour of Code has given a great boost to the awareness of
programming, but I just read that an article recently that stated 9

Nick Urban's curator insight, July 17, 2015 3:50 PM

I really love this article that discusses the use of iPads and coding in the classroom to not only gain knowledge in how to code, but also in learning the content of the course. Coding offers a great way for students to become dynamic and fluid in their learning and also being exposed to one of the largest growth industries in the world. As everything becomes more digital there becomes a greater need for coders and designers. Thus, this allows students to see the power of coding and creates a great interest field in a new way of life.

Les bonnes questions à se poser avant d'acquérir des tablettes.

Un IPAD ou toute autre technologie de ce type demande un certain investissement financier. Avant de décider du choix d'un appareil spécifique à destination des élèves, il est nécessaire de prendre en considération vos objectifs pédagogiques à long-terme. Il sera alors temps de vous poser des questions sur l'utilité de ces équipements et si l'achat vous semble pertinent , il conviendra de réfléchir en amont aux usages que vous pourrez en faire dans un cadre pédagogique.

I’VE just escaped the Apple institution. I’ve sent in my resignation, and fled down its bright white corridors curated by crass colourful pictures of iPhones past. I handed in my security pass and in return I was able to re-claim my creativity, individuality and free thinking from the secure Apple cloak room. For the first time in two years I feel light, creative and inspired.
