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

University.  School. Death of the textbook? So where sits the library? | iThink, therefore iPad | 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.

Via Anne Whisken
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 3:27 PM
Great summary Sue. Where do you see the concept of 'reference desk' sitting in the future school library?

Why Digital Learning Is Here To Stay

Why Digital Learning Is Here To Stay | iThink, therefore iPad | Scoop.it
Digital learning is coming whether people like it or not. The new standards call for it. Twenty-first century readiness requires it. Future jobs rely on it. There is no doubt that educational technology has the power to motivate kids, so why not harness that passion in the K-12 classroom? There are many reasons why digital learning has arrived and is here to stay.

Sue Osborne's insight:

Definitely should be part of learning, but not ALL the learning. Digital skills are like all other skills - tools. The CONTENT is what is really important! Too much focus is often on the tools being used, rather than what they are supposed to be teaching.....
