Increase student engagement with podcasts

Increase student engagement with podcasts | library trends and future roles | Scoop.it
Much of the research on whether students are more engaged when using podcasts and other multimedia tools has so far focused mainly on college students. It’s been shown that some students, especially those who reported low levels of interest in the course, are more engaged when using podcasts in combination with traditional education tools. Until more research is done in K-12, we can assume that these results translate to younger students as well.

Not a great fan of the podcast myself, but seems to be research here to support their use.

Getting Started with Design Thinking in the Classroom – John Spencer

Getting Started with Design Thinking in the Classroom – John Spencer | library trends and future roles | Scoop.it
Every day, I ask my kids, “What did you make in school today?” Too often, they can’t give me an answer. But on the days that they do, their eyes light up and they passionately describe their projects. It’s in those moments that I am reminded that making is magic.

16 skills students need to learn today to thrive tomorrow | library trends and future roles | Scoop.it
The gap between the skills people learn and the skills people need is becoming more obvious, as traditional learning falls short of equipping students with the knowledge they need to thrive, according to the World Economic Forum report New Vision for Education: Fostering Social and Emotional Learning Through Technology.

Today's job candidates must be able to collaborate, communicate and solve problems – skills developed mainly through social and emotional learning (SEL). Combined with traditional skills, this social and emotional proficiency will equip students to succeed in the evolving digital economy.

What is Design Thinking and Why Is It So Popular?

Design Thinking is not an exclusive property of designers—all great innovators in literature, art, music, science, engineering, and business have practiced it. So, why call it Design Thinking? What’s special about Design Thinking is that designers’ work processes can help us systematically extract, teach, learn and apply these human-centred techniques to solve problems in a creative and innovative way — in our designs, in our businesses, in our countries, in our lives.

Some of the world’s leading brands, such as Apple, Google, Samsung, and GE, have rapidly adopted the Design Thinking approach and Design Thinking is being taught at leading universities around the world, including d.school, Stanford, Harvard and MIT. But do you know what Design Thinking is? And why it’s so popular? Here we’ll cut to the chase and tell you what it is and why it’s so popular.

Between Books & Trees: A unique, ecological design for a new public library

Between Books & Trees: A unique, ecological design for a new public library | library trends and future roles | Scoop.it

JAJA shared their latest proposal, which was awarded third prize, for a new public library in Daegu, South Korea.

 

Pushing the boundary of the notion that a library must be a contained, quiet and nearly isolated space, JAJA’s proposal treats the library as massive public zone for the fostering of communal creativity, and dissolves the separation between inside and nature.

JAJA, typically noted for their form making abilities, have opted for a minimialistic formal language of the architecture, so that the streamlined library can capture the textures of the existing trees and the books within to create a cohesive experience that celebrates both.

 

“We propose to merge the spatial qualities of the trees and the potential of the library into one cohesive identity. The library will merge the exterior and interior through a series of spatial transitions within an inclusive environment for the local community,” explained the architects.

 

View additional images and read more about this design that integrates building and nature, on both an aesthetic and functional level, creating a unique experience with light, form and space...
