The iPad in Education – How the iPad Suits All Learning Styles | MediaCAST Blog

The iPad in Education – How the iPad Suits All Learning Styles | MediaCAST Blog | Library learning centre builds lifelong learners. | Scoop.it

"When the gift-giving season for 2011 came around, the dreaded word ‘iPad’ appeared on the wishlist of nearly half the children in America. Parents across the country feared that the expensive handheld would become just another video game console tossed in the toybox. Now, while the flashy graphics and wide array of entertainment apps can paint that sort of picture, many app designers are actually tending toward interactive learning tools for their younger users. Was this portable PC really designed with education in mind?"

Five-Minute Film Festival: Learn to Use Web 2.0 Tools

Five-Minute Film Festival: Learn to Use Web 2.0 Tools | Library learning centre builds lifelong learners. | Scoop.it

While many of you may be heading for the beach this week, it won't be long before you're ready to start exploring some new tools to help your students be better creators and collaborators when you go back to school in the fall. This week we published a new video on Nicole Dalesio, a fifth-grade teacher who uses all kinds of free technology tools in her class to keep her kids engaged, and it inspired me to go hunt down the best tutorials for all these great, free Web 2.0 tools. Did I mention most of them are free?

Common Core Thrusts Librarians Into Leadership Role

Common Core Thrusts Librarians Into Leadership Role | Library learning centre builds lifelong learners. | Scoop.it
Already equipped with inquiry-based skills, librarians are helping teachers acquire the instructional methods they need to adopt.

 

With the common standards on her doorstep, Ms. Hearne has a lot to do. Her library at Wren Middle School in Piedmont, S.C., is a nerve center in her school's work to arm both teachers and students for a focus on new kinds of study. She's working to build not only students' skills in writing, reading, research, and analysis, but also teachers' skills in teaching them. She and other librarians say they view the common core, with its emphasis on explanation, complex text, and cross-disciplinary synthesis, as an unprecedented opportunity for them to really strut their stuff.
