 The notion of sharing and collaborating in a “networked classroom” empowers the whole learning environment.  The BYOD provides a creative solution to create a participative model of teaching and learning.  Teachers and students are side-by side in the learning process. BYOD programs promote student achievement and advance teachers’ technology skills.

As Researchers Turn to Google, Libraries Navigate the Messy World of Discovery Tools

Sharrock's curator insight, April 29, 2014 10:23 AM

from the article: "Ms. Morse belongs to a group, the Open Discovery Initiative, which unites various players to promote transparency and best practices for discovery tools. In the emerging conversations around this topic, one buzz phrase is "content neutrality." The idea resembles "net neutrality," the notion that network operators shouldn’t block or favor certain content. Proponents of content neutrality argue that discovery providers should have equal access to the information needed to surface content in the search tools’ results. That information includes things like the full text of journal articles and the "metadata" that describe the articles, such as the author, subject, journal title and publication date."

nickcarman's curator insight, May 1, 2014 12:21 AM

The School Libraries section of the 2014 State of America's Libraries Report provides an overview of the top school library trends of the past year.
School libraries are at a critical point: Budget and testing pressures have led to decisions to eliminate or deprofessionalize school libraries, but the increased emphasis on college and career readiness and the integration of technology makes them more critical than ever. School librarians’ collaboration with other educators is key to literacy and imlementation of Common Core State Standards. The American Library Association (ALA) is undertaking an advocacy campaign for school libraries that sets goals in five critical areas.

Teams are still top-down structures. Community is messier and more complex, but can involve many more people. When we open up community, we will hear dissenting voices. So forget guiding coalitions and teams and go for messy and complex.
