Learn About URL Structure in Under 3 Minutes | Library and Information Science | Scoop.it

Understanding the structure of a URL helps students understand how information is stored and accessed online—it is one of the basic skills at the foundation of information and digital literacy. Teaching the ins and outs of servers and subdomains can be challenging, which is why we’ve been hard at work creating simple and engaging video tutorials to help you teach these imperative skills to students.

Excuse my politics for showing, but SERIOUSLY? Do y'all realize he bought over 60,000 copies of this book himself and then donated them to schools? Maybe I should write a fact-impaired children's book full of revisionist history and questionable stereotypes and then buy 100,000 copies of my own book so I can be Author of the Year? This makes me ill.

PROMISING PRACTICES IN INSTRUCTIO OF DISCOVERY TOOLS

Libraries are continually changing to meet the needs of users; this includes implementing discovery tools, also referred to as web-scale discovery tools, to make searching library resources easier. Because these tools are so new, it is difficult to establish definitive best practices for teaching these tools; however, promising practices are emerging. A promising practice is “a program, activity, or strategy” that shows early promise for being effective in the long term and generalizable across institutions (Dare Mighty Things, n.d.).

6 Days and 78 Resources for Digital Literacy Internet Safety

6 Days and 78 Resources for Digital Literacy Internet Safety | Library and Information Science | Scoop.it

"Internet Safety and Digital Citizenship are important topics ... it is so integral to what our kids do while they are at school.  Whether or not you have a 1:1 program, these are topics that shouldn’t be overlooked!  Don’t assume that because your students are fairly savvy when it comes to learning technology, that they will automatically pick up on digital literacy...it is essential that parents learn about digital literacy so that they can echo and enforce good technology use at home"


Via Beth Dichter, Fishtree Education, Bonnie Bracey Sutton, Jim Lerman

This is also important in a school library environment.

Motherloade of information. sometimes sites like these also serve us well as sub plans too.

Kat Zimmermann's curator insight, July 23, 7:20 AM

This is an entire lesson plan for a school community that has BYOD.  It would be useful (and slightly overwhelming) for educators and parents to look through to have a better grasp on how to support their students.

David Cook's curator insight, August 7, 7:26 PM

Looks better for K - 8 teachers than high school (myself).  I do like the week plan of 5 days of focus on digital literacy!

The Future of Librarianship: A Blended Perspective Apr. 10 Webinar | Blended Librarian

The Future of Librarianship: A Blended Perspective Apr. 10 Webinar | Blended Librarian | Library and Information Science | Scoop.it

Thursday, April 10, 2014 from 3:00-4:00pm Eastern 


The library profession is in the midst of a paradigm shift, thanks to technology and its impact on literacy and learning. With it have come new leadership roles for librarians, roles that require knowledge and skills not traditionally taught in library school programs. Blended librarianship is one way to embrace these new roles. Join Amanda Hovious as she discusses her journey toward becoming blended, and her perspective on what librarianship will look like in the (not too distant) future.
