The Bigger Picture: A Classroom Library Supports Balanced Literacy Instruction | Learning Unlimited | Research-based Literacy Strategies | Library Web 2.0 skills | Scoop.it

In a balanced literacy classroom, teachers read to students by engaging in read alouds on a regular basis. They also read with students and guide and support them as they progress in their reading skills and provide time for students to read by themselves. A diverse, classroom library that is rich with resources supports each of these distinct purposes. In this post, I’ll focus on the overarching purpose of your library – the whys behind all the work, effort, and joy of building a diverse and spectacular classroom library.  Learning Unlimited.

Creative Commons from a Student's Perspective | Edudemic

Creative Commons from a Student's Perspective | Edudemic | Library Web 2.0 skills | Scoop.it

As a student, I’d have to say that one of the most annoying tasks when writing an assignment, whether a blog, a report or an essay would have to be citing sources. It’s not like I don’t feel that authors deserve credit for their work or that I’m too lazy to cite something. It’s the fact that teachers request that information be cited in a certain way. Sadly however, the “way” continually changes and differs. Within this article, I hope to describe my challenges with citing my sources and also develop my thoughts, as a student and blogger, on not only the new “Creative Commons” style of citing images, but also where I believe citations need improvement.

The e-book phenomenon: a disruptive technology

The e-book phenomenon: a disruptive technology | Library Web 2.0 skills | Scoop.it
The e-book and its associated technology have emerged as a disruptive technology over the past ten years. The aim of this paper is to discuss some of the consequences of this development, based on the work of the e-books in Sweden research project. To explain the impact of the e-book phenomenon we use Winston’s theory of technological innovation, with particular reference to the ‘supervening social necessity’, the combination of factors that turns an innovation into a marketable product. As a result of the technology all aspects of the production, distribution and use of books is affected. The e-book is having different effects in different sectors and in different parts of the world: rapid development in the USA, slower in France and Japan; rapid development in academic libraries, slower development in public libraries, from country to country. These differences suggest that one supervening social necessity may be needed to explain the divergencies. There is a great deal of exaggeration of the impact of the e-book, based mainly on its influence in the USA. Development in other countries is taking place more slowly and differently and in ‘small language’ countries like Sweden, the pace of development, except in academic libraries is likely to be slow.
