AWESOME + a tip from Linda:

" Definite share with teachers for finding primary source documents.  Also, don't forget the Google LIFE magazine images. 

 

"Search tip

Add "source:life" to any Google image search and search only the LIFE photo archive. For example: computer source:life "

Charli Wiggill's curator insight, September 9, 2013 4:30 AM

If you frequently refer to primary sources in your coursework - this may be really useful to you.

Lauren McBride writes: "These are just some tools for your global awareness toolbox. By providing our students with opportunities to help combat the global issue of unequal access to education for girls, our students will in turn create authentic, global learning experiences and develop the skills of informed, productive citizens, who can think critically, draw conclusions and take action in a productive, meaningful way. We can change the world, one library at a time."

Five Essentials To Create Connected Students (EdSurge News)

Five Essentials To Create Connected Students (EdSurge News) | School Libraries and Librarians | Scoop.it
"But being connected isn’t just for socializing; it’s a life skill. When untrained students get online, they treat academic writing online as if it were social media. They write sloppily and don't think of hyperlinking. If they do, it is often a long pasted link instead of a contextual link. In this connected world, there are invisibly disconnected kids, disconnected from the knowledge they need to be successful."

School libraries and teacher-librarians: evidence of their contribution to student literacy and learning

School libraries and teacher-librarians: evidence of their contribution to student literacy and learning | School Libraries and Librarians | Scoop.it
School libraries have the potential to be a vibrant hub for learning, information, reading promotion, creativity, student leadership and social interaction within their school community. From an equity perspective, the school library is one of few places in a school open to all students, teachers and parents. In addition to providing a congenial learning environment and ‘safe haven’, the school library often offers a venue for extra-curricular activities, as well as school community events and meetings.
