Certainly a different way to encourage our kids to read, but the dogs are there to listen - no growling, no barking allowed!

Creating a Knowledge Management Strategy to Carry Your Organisation Forward (pdf)

David Grifiiths examines some of the challenges for organisations looking to progress knowledge management initiatives. He argues that people are the active protagonists in the knowledge process, not IT, and one of the key problems for organisations is that the strategic
conditions for the deployment of KM have not been fully considered, particularly needing greater collaboration between those people in an organisation's KM and HR teams.

lyn_hay's curator insight, January 2, 2013 9:59 PM

This School Librarian Evaluation Rubric by the New York State Department of Education (SED) through submissions from Section of School Librarians (SSL) of NYLA and the  NYS School Library Systems Association (SLSA) is an excellent tool for TLs to evaluate their school library programs and their professional practice.

Carey Leahy's curator insight, January 2, 2013 10:49 PM

Though this rubric is not being implimented in Australia, it is excellent for self-evaluation and goal-setting.

Alysse Martin's curator insight, March 6, 2013 10:16 PM

In my experience, kids love using iPads! During my prac I downloaded some free apps for the preps to use as part of morning rotations, in order to practice their literacy and numeracy skills. They were super keen to use the apps and, as they had to share 2 iPads between 4-5 kids, it was great to see them working collaboratively, helping each other out and learning from each other at the same time. I used the following apps:

ABC Magic 3, 123 NUMBER MAGIC Line Matching, Lola's Math Train Lite and Lola's Alphabet Train Lite

Learning activities such as these that include the use of digital technologies align with the new ACARA technology curriculum...

2.4 Identify, explore, and use digital systems (hardware and software components) for personal and classroom needs.
