Soon, millions of children will be preparing to start first grade. They come to the classroom having been exposed to tablets, e-readers and smart phones, websites and video games, TV and YouTube and Vine. Today’s first graders inhabit a world that’s very different from what their parents knew at that age. Yet, these kids walk...

The Challenges of Digital Leadership

The Challenges of Digital Leadership | library life | Scoop.it
By far the most prevalent issue I see in schools struggling with their technology integration and implementation is the lack of a collective vision for how digital learning tools will be used to enhance learning. Schools often purchase software, computer devices, and technology-based learning systems because they are effective marketing tools for recruitment, or because they want to keep pace with the digital investments of rival institutions, or simply because they fear appearing outdated. None of these have to do with learning, of course, and inevitably are insufficient to smooth over the challenges that arise as digital tools enter classroom spaces.

The basic cognitive skills needed by previous generations are no longer enough. Students in the conceptual age must also master the higher levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy and Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, including creation, metacognition and self-actualization.

“It will require an upgrade to our curriculum, new instructional methods and materials, a new profile of a global graduate and an open mind,” say Smith, Chavez and Seaman.

For ideas about how to re-create your classroom for the conceptual age, including potential classroom setups, blended learning models to mix and match, and a curriculum design process, take a look at the infographic

October 14, 2014

 

Michigan State Board of Education Passes Resolution Supporting School Libraries


The Michigan State Board of Education passed a resolution in support of school libraries at the October 14th Board meeting. The resolution states that strong school libraries staffed by certified school librarians are critical to student success.
Studies in over 20 states including Michigan show that school libraries with full-time teaching school librarians have a high impact on increasing student achievement regardless of socio-economic or educational levels of the community. Currently, Michigan ranks 46th nationally in ratio of students per school librarian. In addition, Michigan is one of only six states that has suffered a loss in reading achievement between 2003 and 2013 based on 4th grade National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP) scores. Thus, it is critical that Michigan increases support for libraries staffed by certified school librarians in our schools.

 

RESOLUTION
The Michigan State Board of Education recognizes that school library media centers provide Michigan's students and staff equitable access to print and digital resources critical to supporting 21st century teaching and learning.
The Board further recognizes that certified library media specialists serve a critical role in increasing student achievement by supporting, collaborating, and co-teaching with classroom teachers in reading development, in integrating information and technology literacy skills into the content curriculum, and in meeting the expectations for student research set forth in the Common Core State Standards.
The Library of Michigan, an office of the Michigan Department of Education, has developed the "SL21 Measurement Benchmarks for Michigan School Libraries for 21st Century Schools" and calls for school administrators and school librarians to use the SL21 measures to assess the quality of school library programs in individual buildings.
The Board supports these efforts and supports a call for all elementary and secondary students to have ready access to a library in their school with appropriate resources, programming and certified staff.

That's why a group of great teacher-authors has decided to put together a FREE French eBook of tips and links to freebies for the back-to-school season or should I say "pour la rentrée"? Laudalina from Profs et Soeurs is the mastermind of this amazing initiative and Ms. Joanne has been so generous to host the eBook

The report describes findings from the NMC Horizon Project, an ongoing research project designed to identify and describe emerging technologies likely to have an impact on teaching, learning, and creative inquiry. Six key trends, six significant challenges, and six emerging technologies are identified across three adoption horizons over the next one to five years, giving library leaders and staff a valuable guide for strategic technology planning. The format of the report was designed to provide these leaders with more in-depth insight into how the trends and challenges are accelerating and impeding the adoption of technology, along with their implications for policy, leadership, and practice.

Genrefication of your school’s fiction collection | library life | Scoop.it

Do you use the Dewey Decimal Classification at your school? Can your kids figure out what "142.780973" means? Would they know where to find the "Sports" books? Using this logic, many schools are wondering if they and their students might be better served using a book-store model, or genres, when it comes to their fiction collection…. but where to begin?
