Great explanations of the icons used on Creative Commons documents, and some good advice on proper attribution. Just because it's free doesn't mean we use without acknowledging origins! rescooped via Karen Bonanno.

There is a new digital divide on the horizon. It is not based around who has devices and who does not, but instead the new digital divide will be based around students who know how to effectively find and curate information and those who do not.

The importance of instilling a need to read

The importance of instilling a need to read | JFK High School Library | Scoop.it

Reading for pleasure at the age of 15 is a strong factor in determining future social mobility. Indeed, it has been revealed as the most important indicator of the future success of the child.

 

That was the startling finding of research carried out by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development on education and reading, and their role in promoting social mobility. It highlights why getting teenagers to read for pleasure is more than a sepia-tinted ambition for frustrated parents. It is a fundamental social issue.


Via Karen Bonanno
Lucinda Scott-Kellermeier's insight:

This article addresses UK reading issues, but the message relates to reading curriculum in any country. We need to anchor classic reading choices with contemporary literature reflecting 21st c. teen experiences and concerns.

Lucinda Scott-Kellermeier's insight:

This needs to be shared with our IEP team and Guidance. The Library has the iPads, but they are not used as frequently as originally hoped!

This is an argument for assigning tablets to dyslexic students for the whole quarter or semester.

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, November 4, 2015 8:03 AM

This is well worth your time to read. As librarians, we are tasked with instilling a love of reading which is exceedingly difficult to do for the child with dyslexia. Knowing about these tools and how they help transform the written world for these students is vitally important.
