A Media Specialist's Guide to the Internet: Amazing! 74 Infographics for Teacher-Librarians (L.A. Teachers Too!)

A Media Specialist's Guide to the Internet: Amazing! 74 Infographics for Teacher-Librarians (L.A. Teachers Too!) | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

When your budget is low on dollars, you need to become creative when it comes to everything in your school library. Since we have a computer lab in our library-media center, (and lots of wall space...) I have decorated the lab with posters and infographics. You might have seen some of my original work, including 7 Things to Know About EBSCO, and the READ poster. There are also many posters which help students format their research paper, search for Google images, and understanding search results. When I began this search I never expected to find so many infographics for school librarians! If you are a language arts teacher, you will also find many related to grammar and reading below.

The why in Education

The why in Education | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

Registration of my TED talk at TEDxAmsterdamED on March 26th 2015. The talk is a short (8 minute) version of the story below: Did you ever ask yourself if the decisions you make are driven by what you know or feel is good – or are these decisions simply driven by your habits, by what you’re used to? 

Each and every single one of us is a decision maker when it comes to education. As a parent, you decide on which school you pick for your young child and how you support and stimulate your children during their school years. When you grow up, you decide which school or university you pick yourself. As a teacher, you decide on the way you set up your classes. As a school director, you decide on the way you shape your school and facilitate your team. As a politician, you decide on how the money is spent.

But based on what? What drives your decision making?

Joran Le Cren's curator insight, March 30, 10:03 AM

A good analysis of the skills required for the 21st century but... we may miss the 21st century because of this:

"Delivering on the potential of technology to address skills gaps will ultimately require effective collaboration among a complex and interconnected group of policymakers, educators, education technology providers, and funders." (sic)


Anything planned for the 22nd century ? or is there any disruptor in the place ?

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, April 6, 9:22 AM

Business consulting groups are paying close attention to education technology and its impact and influence on learning, and its ultimate impact on the work place. That seems significant.

All humans are citizens of the world, and teaching that fact to children in school can make them more sensitive to global issues and inspire them to look outside their own walls. A globalized classroom helps students to see the local significance of international events. How can you help your pupils adopt such a broad point of view? The following resources will inspire you to plan lessons that foster global awareness.

7 things every kid should master - The Boston Globe

7 things every kid should master - The Boston Globe | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

A noted Williams College psychologist argues standardized tests are useful, if they measure the abilities students really need. 

1. Reading

2. Inquiry

3. Flexible thinking and the use of evidence

4. Conversation

5. Collaborations

6. Engagement

7. Well-being

Trudy Raymakers's insight:

Susan Engel reviewed more than 300 studies of K–12 academic tests. What she discovered is that most tests used to evaluate students, teachers, and school districts predict almost nothing except the likelihood of achieving similar scores on subsequent tests. The 7 to measure qualities seem very useful to 'capture' a child's educational progress.

The School Librarian as Learning Alchemist | American Libraries Magazine

The School Librarian as Learning Alchemist | American Libraries Magazine | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

The landscape of learning is changing. Children and young adults learn not only in school but fluidly across home, school, peer culture, and community. This transformation in learning and the school environment has prompted educators to ask challenging questions about how to de­velop learning spaces to meet these needs within the some­times competing economic, social, and political realities.

At the same time, school librarians continue to serve their communities by linking children, young adults, and teachers with both the information they need and the skills to use it. We’ve identified three trends that we see as most affecting the role of the school librarian in the near future.

One vision of tomorrow’s college: Cheap, tailored to you, and you get a real education, not a degree

One vision of tomorrow’s college: Cheap, tailored to you, and you get a real education, not a degree | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

Higher education — increasingly unaffordable and unattainable — is on the verge of a transformation that not only could remedy that, but could change the role college plays in our society. Can you imagine the benefits of colleges having little bricks-and-mortar overhead, of each student being taught in ways scientifically tailored to their individual needs, of educators, students and researchers being able to capi­tal­ize on global intelligence?It’s cheap, you study with people around the world, and you get a real education, not a degree.
