21st Century Information Fluency: Teacher's Guide: Ethical Use GameKit | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

This guide provides instructions and ideas for using the Action Zone activities that are bundled in this Ethical Use Kit. The Sorting Hat Challenge requires searchers to dig for information within a site to find its author. Four new MicroModule Companions test skills in finding information about Copyright, Citation and Plagiarism (2 sets). In addition to serving as tutorial resources, each one may be used to assess the extent to which students are able to demonstrate skills in secondary searching and citing resources properly.

We have a perception problem. ALA’s current president, Maureen Sullivan, agrees. “I am concerned that school administrators may not fully understand the critical role school libraries and their librarians play in fostering academic achievement and student success in a technology-driven world,” she wrote recently on Huffington Post.

Using The Power Of The Pair To Enhance Active Learning - Edudemic

Using The Power Of The Pair To Enhance Active Learning - Edudemic | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

Colleen Lee: 


I remember when I first figured out the “power of the pair”. I had walked onto our school library and the noise was way above what I would expect. I asked our librarian how it could be like that and she told me it wasn’t ‘noise’ – that if I listened closely it was ‘learning’. As I looked around the room it was evident. Students were working together to help each other in learn. For me the ‘pair’ is now one of my most powerful tools. I use it in all my foreign language classes and see it increasingly used in other disciplines. Here’s a few reasons why:

Bestaat de digital native? | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

Als betrokken vader van een schoolgaande dochter (basisschool, groep 5) heb ik een aantal jaar deel uitgemaakt van de ouderraad. Hierbinnen fascineerden vooral de uiteenlopende beelden over mediagebruik mij mateloos. Terwijl sommige ouders al volop aan het twitteren waren, hoorde ik in 2011 op school nog de legendarische opmerking dat “mailen het helemaal ging worden”. Ondertussen liepen de kinderen nog altijd op het schoolplein met papieren brieven over een kamp of 10-minutengesprek.
