How Search Works - An Illustrated Explanation

How Search Works - An Illustrated Explanation | Library-related | Scoop.it
Google search is a part of our students' daily lives (most of them have never lived in world without Google), but often they don't know how the search results displayed before them got there. How Search Works is an animated graphic that reveals the basics of how websites are sorted, ranked, and presented to you in your search results.

School libraries can serve as personalized learning hotspots

"According to eSchool News, librarians can track student data to give educators more information about student needs, field student questions to guide future lessons and organize book displays and other work spaces to capitalize on student interests."

Educational Leadership:Literacy in Every Classroom:How Knowledge Powers Reading

Educational Leadership:Literacy in Every Classroom:How Knowledge Powers Reading | Library-related | Scoop.it
The brain's active processing capacity is finite, so unless knowledge is encoded in long-term memory, having to search for it actually crowds out other forms of cognition. Knowing things helps you think and read successfully.

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, February 3, 3:13 PM
This is a powerful article from Educational Leadership that provides research to back up the fact that prior knowledge is a key component to reading instruction. We tend to think that knowing something is less important nowadays because we can simply Google the answer. Not so, according to author Doug Lemov. This is my take-away: "The brain's active processing capacity is finite, so unless knowledge is encoded in long-term memory, having to search for it actually crowds out other forms of cognition. Knowing things helps you think and read successfully."
This has implications for libraries and how we support reading instruction. To me, it also solidifies the practice of allowing students to check out books that interest them as they emerge as readers and not pigeon-hole them into Lexile ranges. Those little nuggets of information could be just that piece of prior knowledge needed to "think and read successfully" in the future. Enjoy!

Embedded non-fiction when reading fiction with students helps with understanding not only of the fiction but how non-fiction is a useful tool for learning. Interesting read.

This is a nicely done article that explains why inquiry in the classroom is a good idea and then goes on to show how to get started complete with suggested instructional technology tools to help students withe the process. I love how the author makes the point about asking the "right question" as an indicator of understanding (formative assessment). Enjoy!

I love the opening line of this blog post that says (paraphrasing) PBL is easy but PBL done well is a lot more difficult. The author goes on to give examples of schools that ARE doing it well and how they're doing it. The list includes active links to the schools (or systems) so you can click through and see what's going on there. This is well worth a read!

K-12 experts weigh in on the hot topics for Ed Tech and there are some things that stand out for any school librarian looking for ways to be a more integral part of the instructional day. Maker spaces are in the list and libraries have been leaders in this regard. My own opinion: connect maker space activities to the next hot topic, Next Generation Science Standards, and you're well on your way! Open educational resources (OER), coding, and student privacy are also in the list. This is where school librarians live - how will YOU become essential with these Ed Tech trends?

If you are not sure what a Future Ready library is or what it looks like, this is an excellent article to get you started.

He also talks about OER (open educational resources) and how that fits into the school library ecosystem. Check this one out!
