Web tools to support inquiry-based learning

Inquiry-based learning is an active learning process, based on identifying relevant questions to research so that the student can develop knowledge about or create solutions to issues and problems.

Web tools allow students to engage in collaborative and interactive learning. All phases of inquiry learning can be adequately addressed through a wide variety of web-based tools and applications.

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.

How do we make libraries better?  We need software that is easy to use, engaging and immediately accessible.  We also need to be actively advocating for our libraries!  Enter the learning commons which does just that.  As we move into a new age of libraries it is good to evaluate what we are doing right and what we need to improve on.  Of course no ways can we compete with Google and Amazon :)  But we are FREE!  and that you cannot BEAT!  So in terms of economy we are bridging the digital divide in terms of poverty!
