Lou Salza's curator insight, June 1, 2013 5:02 PM

I started using Evernote for storing notes from meetings so I could retrieve them on any device at any location.  It is searchable and does way more than keep notes stored and accessible. This site will lead you to excellent explanations of Evernote and its functionality. It can be particularly useful  for teachers and their students !--Lou

Kirsty Watts's curator insight, June 2, 2013 6:23 PM

I absolute agree Evernote is so versatile enabling any student or teacher with any device to work in the same way.

Vicki Butler's curator insight, June 7, 2013 2:30 PM

I need explore the power of Evernote.  The power to use this as a 'notebook' for learners intrigues me.

The Innovative Educator: Parents & Teachers Tell Pearson What They Think About Their Attempt to Demystify Testing | Librarian in Higher Ed | Scoop.it

Upset by what they claimed was misinformation and misperceptions permeated by media coverage, Pearson made a botched attempt to launch a social media campaign (see the internal memo) to “demystify testing for parents.” Pearson employees spent the day censoring comments but as the 9 - 5ers left the office, parents and teachers came on duty to send a loud and clear message to Pearson: “We’re not mystified. We don’t want your tests.”

From elementary to graduate school to continuing education, online tools are creating new horizons in distance learning and new tools to supplement in-person learning. But what does this mean for libraries? How can we enhance traditional library instruction with online tools? How do we create standards in the face of technology that is constantly changing?
