Free Technology for Teachers: Video - How To Create Infographics | Library Detective | Scoop.it

"Infographics are everywhere these days. I've shared a bunch of them on here over the last couple of years. When they are designed well they can provide a good way to interpret and talk about data. Creating an infographic can be a good way to get students to think about they data that they have collected or found in research. In the fifteen minute video below Linda Braun explains how to create an infographic and some of the nuances of the better infographics."

Plague Helped Bring Down Roman Empire, Graveyard Suggests | LiveScience.com

Plague Helped Bring Down Roman Empire, Graveyard Suggests | LiveScience.com | Library Detective | Scoop.it

 

Plague may have helped finish off the Roman Empire, researchers now reveal.

 

Plague is a fatal disease so infamous that it has become synonymous with any dangerous, widespread contagion. It was linked to one of the first known examples of biological warfare, when Mongols catapulted plague victims into cities.

 

The bacterium that causes plague, Yersinia pestis, has been linked with at least two of the most devastating pandemics in recorded history. One, the Great Plague, which lasted from the 14th to 17th centuries, included the infamous epidemic known as the Black Death, which may have killed nearly two-thirds of Europe in the mid-1300s. Another, the Modern Plague, struck around the world in the 19th and 20th centuries, beginning in China in the mid-1800s and spreading to Africa, the Americas, Australia, Europe and other parts of Asia.

this is a cool bit about the downfall of rome

Nicole Balashov's curator insight, December 23, 2014 2:12 AM

The main idea of this article is to tell us possible reason to decline of Roman Empire, and this reason is epidemic of plague, that according to scientists, killed around 100 million people, so by hipothesis this epidemic was one of the reasons that helped finish off the Roman Empire.

Do I Really Have to Leave the Role of School Librarian To Do the Work of a School Librarian?

Do I Really Have to Leave the Role of School Librarian To Do the Work of a School Librarian? | Library Detective | Scoop.it

The new issue of School Library Journal features a cover story called, “Next Year’s Model: Sarah Ludwig left the library, became a tech coordinator, and forged a path to the future."In that story, author Linda Braun wonders if school librarians have to leave the library and take on a completely different job title to do the work of a modern school librarian. The thesis seems to be that school librarians taking on job titles other than school librarian, like “technology coordinator”, might be the future of the profession.

 

Here's a response to the story that challenges school librarians to change the perceptions about what modern school librarianship is all about, and what is essential to the future of the profession:  http://theunquietlibrarian.wordpress.com/2012/04/02/do-i-really-have-to-leave-the-school-library-to-do-the-work-of-a-school-librarian/
