Awesome Visual on The Importance of Reading Aloud to Kids ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Awesome Visual on The Importance of Reading Aloud to Kids ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Library Science | Scoop.it

"Below is a graphic I come across while wading through my feeds today. The visual emphasizes the importance of read-alouds  in early literacy learning. It also features a set of interesting facts on how reading aloud helps in kids' literacy development. Reading aloud to kids is not only beneficial to young learners linguistic abilities but is also connected to their social and cognitive development. And the most important of them all is that only 15 minutes of read-aloud is enough to make a difference"

L R Everitt's insight:

Research I've read says the best thing for boosting reading comprehension is ... more reading.  Just the physical act of having the brain become exposed to the written word will allow a process to occur that is akin to learning to speak: the brain struggles to decode the message and improves its ability to decode in the future. Therefore, when one reads aloud, it would be even better if the listener can see the words while hearing them pronounced by the reader.

This  graphic has a place in every library and classroom, but also in every home (just so we don't lose sight of the huge importance of reading aloud).

Out in the Open: The Tiny Box That Lets You Take Your Data Back From Google | Enterprise | WIRED | Library Science | Scoop.it

For open source developer Johannes Ernst, what the world really needs is a simple device that anyone can use to take their data back from the wilds of the internet.


So he designed the Indie Box, a personal web server preloaded with open source software that lets you run your own web services from your home network–and run them with relative ease.


You can’t buy an Indie Box yet, but you can pre-order one through the crowdfunding site Indie GoGo.


The first Indie Box will run off an Intel Atom processor, 2GB of RAM, and two 1TB hard drives that mirror each other to help protect your data.


Software will include ownCloud, which offers a calendar, address book, and Dropbox-style file sharing; the photo album apps mediagoblin and Trovebox; and the e-mail client Mailpile.

We are finally seeing the de-centralized internet coming together.

Lots of people are working on this, both on software and hardware (like this computer/personal server) to make it a reality.

Do You have the Personality To Be an Inquiry-Based Teacher?

Do You have the Personality To Be an Inquiry-Based Teacher? | Library Science | Scoop.it
If an inquiry-based system is to succeed, we’ll need really good human beings in the classroom who know their field, but who also radiate the kind of positive, non-judgmental love that helps students open their minds and hearts.

Via Gust MEES
L R Everitt's insight:

I absolutely agree with this premise: students need to feel the classroom is a safe place to take risks and even make mistakes, all in the interest of learning.  That sense of security comes from agreeing build a positive learning environment, which is a loving place to be.  Students, as well as teachers, have a lot of power to make or break such an agreement, so modeling this behavior and teaching students how to build mutual trust and respect is worth a small loss in academic instruction time at the beginning of the course.

It's important to know if you have what it takes and to know what you might need to work on to become a better inquiry based teacher. A MUST read!!

Interactive book apps are cool: In this one "the reading experience is amplified by seamless interactivity and nonlinear storytelling.
As Little Red journeys through the woods, readers can choose from multiple routes to get her to Grandma’s house. Each path contains an interactive activity that requires readers to assist the girl as she gathers items that ultimately help her send the wolf on his way. Game play is wonderfully immersive; viewers can blow into the iPad’s microphone to disperse dandelions or tilt the screen to move a spider along."

5 Tools To Help Create A Paperless Book Club - Edudemic

5 Tools To Help Create A Paperless Book Club - Edudemic | Library Science | Scoop.it

"A class set of novels, binders, poster boards, and enough post-it notes to wallpaper a school…. all supplies associated with a traditional middle school book club model. With the addition of iPads, Google Apps, and other educational technology, the age of the “traditional” book club requires a change.

 

Digital book clubs allow for connected, flexible, and customized literacy instruction that engages all learners. From reading digital novels, to participating in online discussions, and annotating text with categorical tags to expressing ideas through transliteracy (multi-media tools), students will interact with the text, the teacher, and each other while receiving nearly instant, trackable feedback on their work. You can use technology to reinforce effective comprehension strategies while upgrading the literary climate of your classroom by following these 5 steps to revolutionize your classroom book clubs."

If the Common Core is being made into a political football because average citizens don't know much about it, is that any basis for forming an opinion? Evidently Rickert thinks so.
