15 Lesson Plans For Making Students Better Online Researchers ~ Global Digital Citizen Foundation

15 Lesson Plans For Making Students Better Online Researchers ~ Global Digital Citizen Foundation | Libraries and eLearning | Scoop.it

"Google is usually one of the first places students turn to when tasked with an assignment. Whether it’s for research, real-time results, or just a little digital exploration … it’s important they know how to properly Google. Lucky for teachers (and students, of course), Google has a handy set of lesson plans that are just waiting to be unleashed upon the leaders of tomorrow.

 

"While I understand there’s a LOT more to research than just Googling, it’s important to note that this is where nearly all students start their research. Therefore, it’s a critical skill if they’re going to start down the right paths.

 

"Below are 15 lesson plans courtesy of Google designed to make students better online researchers. They’re organized by difficulty and meant to help students (and everyone) become better online searchers."

Excellent lessons. Must be used.

Deborah Fillman's curator insight, December 15, 2014 8:47 PM

This is a pet peeve of mine--schools are still not teaching kids how to do this properly, with disastrous results. Whether you homeschool or send a child to school, these lessons will help them use the Internet more effectively (and responsibly) for research projects.

Thirteen Ways of Looking at Libraries, Discovery, and the Catalog: Scale, Workflow, Attention (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Libraries and eLearning | Scoop.it

There is a renaissance of interest in the catalog and catalog data. Yet it comes at a time when the catalog itself is being reconfigured in ways which may result in its disappearance as an individually identifiable component of library service.1 It is being subsumed within larger library discovery environments and catalog data is flowing into other systems and services. This article discusses the position of the catalog and uses it to illustrate more general discovery and workflow directions.

The Texas Digital Library: A Model Collaboration (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Libraries and eLearning | Scoop.it

One such example is the Texas Digital Library (TDL), a shared-access infrastructure project launched in 2005 by a group of Texas research libraries.1 A though initially intended to support the needs of the state's PhD-granting institutions, the TDL has grown to become a significant collaborative solution to emerging challenges in digital curation and scholarship over the past decade. By pooling resources and expertise, the TDL has built a shared infrastructure that lets academic libraries offer access to digital scholarship and collections and facilitate emerging modes of academic publishing. The TDL is developing additional services — including preservation, storage, and data management — to meet the needs of a wider range of institutions.

Librarian in Training: The MOOC Library Degree

Librarian in Training: The MOOC Library Degree | Libraries and eLearning | Scoop.it

I'm a fan of continuing professional education (hence the title of this blog!) and I often look to courses to fill gaps in my knowledge or give me a taste of something new. MOOCs (Massive Online Open Courses) are one way to take courses that fit around my normal work schedule and in the past I've been something of a MOOC addict. Although they do have their downsides I think they also have many benefits if both the institution and the participant are prepared to put in the commitment needed.

Abtract from the talk:  "Sheila Webber will start by briefly outlining some general characteristics of MOOCs and her own experience with them. She will go on to identify types of MOOC and the implications for MOOC pedagogy. As part of this discussion she will note some findings from an investigation into the value of learning analytics for MOOC educators (undertaken by Naomi Colhoun at Sheffield University in summer 2014). In the final part of her presentation she will reflect on the various roles that have been, or could be, adopted by librarians."
