School libraries and school librarians must move beyond the ... rhetoric...

It is important to ground this advocacy on strong research evidence, as well as evidence born in and derived from professional action.. that demonstrates this in tangible and meaningful ways.

... evidence-based practice ....is an approach to articulating the basis of our beliefs and the claims we can make about the value and role of libraries.

I see it is a move from a rhetorical warrant to an evidential warrant for school libraries; from a tell me framework to a show me framework, from a persuasive or advocacy framework to a declarative framework.

Exploring the flipped classroom model : What if Professor Plum is no longer in the library?

If there’s one thing I’m sure of, it is that guided tours of databases and lessons on navigating Dewey do not an experiential activity make. Do we need to climb off the soapbox, and acknowledge that for students these resources and lessons are a total yawn until they really need them?

Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where To Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map

Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where To Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map | Libraries and Learning | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Everytime I see a new post or article claiming to list the best content curation tools I know I am in for some disappointment.

 

Most of these lists just pick up names from other lists without even bothering to check, test or verify what these tools actually do, whether they are still available. Unfortunately the rush to put out "curated" list of tools and services has created more misinformation than useful lists. 

 

But if you, like me, are on the lookout for new and effective tools to curate your own content or the one of your customers, I have created a comprehensive map of all the curation tools available online and I keep it fresh and updated almost on a daily basis.

 

The map presently lists over 250 content curation tools which you can navigate much more easily than it was possible on my earlier versions of this map.

 

On the right side of the map you will find all of the news and content curation tools available online today. On the left side, you can find bookmarking, link lists builders, clippers and lots of tools to operate with RSS feeds (which are still at the heart of a curator's job).

Full map: http://bit.ly/ContentCurationUniverse  

Share it.

"We are seeing more and more publishers jumping into the digital textbook market but so far the digital editions are mere pdf versions of the hardcover versions. Moreover, these e-textbooks are still very expensive."

"Here are some guiding questions for creating your digital textbook: How are the learners going to use the information?How will they demonstrate their learning? Are they completing a document, creating an outline or answering a set of questions? What are the assessments associated with the material?"

Let’s keep this rolling for all the ubiquitous librarians out there. I want to post more but the tradeoff is that I need to write less. You know, only so much time in the day/night…

I mentioned back in January that Char Booth and I were working on a project together. That’s finally wrapped up and we packaged it all together:

Education Recovery Plan (draft) for CHCH - Derek's Blog »

Education Recovery Plan (draft) for CHCH - Derek's Blog » | Libraries and Learning | Scoop.it

The destruction caused by the earthquakes has created an "opportunity is taken to 'think afresh' about how a 'city-wide' provision of education services that extends beyond each individual school thinking just of its own needs and services".

How will we provision library services to schools/students  in Christchurch in the future?  Read the draft plan, and make you submisions.  It is a great opportunity to think expansively and differently about how we can serve students, teachers, learning communities better than ever before.
