Creating Clear and Simple Signage | Design4Impact

Creating Clear and Simple Signage | Design4Impact | Library world, new trends, technologies | Scoop.it

At California’s Santa Clara County Library District (SCCLD), we have discovered that 48 percent of patrons prefer finding information themselves rather than asking staff members for help. This led us to examine our user experience of signage, particularly for computer use. We wanted to place ­signage in the exact place where patrons need help and ensure it was meaningful in guiding them in their independent use of the library.

UT: Minecraft’s virtual worlds can teach real U.S. history | The Salt Lake Tribune

UT: Minecraft’s virtual worlds can teach real U.S. history | The Salt Lake Tribune | Library world, new trends, technologies | Scoop.it

Minecraft explorers worldwide excavate sand to smelt into glass, diamonds to hone into swords and redstone to power millions of digital creations.

 

Amber Palmer’s fifth-graders visit the Minecraft universe to dig into U.S. history.

 

At the beginning of the school year, the Bennion Elementary students learned about explorers and land charters, which they had to request from Queen Palmer to begin their virtual building on iPads. (Later, the queen’s stiff taxes provoked a revolt.)

 

Students formed their own states, debated whether to have slaves, moved westward, endured insect infestations, fires and other natural disasters, and built factories at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution.

 

By the time they were creating Minecraft houses with cubes representing gold and diamonds, as they studied the "roaring" 1920s, they knew the decadence could not last.

 

"They have had enough experience," Palmer says, "to know that there are ups and downs throughout history."

 

Her savvy in using programs such as Minecraft, Tellagamis, iMovie, MadLips, and S’Cool earned her one of five KUED-The Salt Lake Tribune Teacher Innovation Awards. She and the others will be profiled in a half-hour program Thursday at 7 p.m. on KUED.

 

Minecraft, she says, is a great tool for creativity and collaboration as she teaches social studies and language arts at the Taylorsville school.

 

"It’s a way for students to process understanding," she says. "They are the programmer. Their game is only as smart as they are."

How the Internet Has Changed Storytelling & Reading | USTelecom Blog

When we think about the great storytelling of the pre-Internet era, writers point out that a common plot device was the absence of real-time communication.

 

The telegram, a hand-delivered letter and even the landline phone offered far less connectivity compared with smartphones, e-mail, social media and the many communications pathways broadband provides today.

 

In an interesting series of interviews published in The New York Times, several writers share their perspectives on the changing technological landscape and how it has affected their work.

Библиотекари - учителя.  Во многих библиотеках  есть компьютеры, которые библиотекари используют для обучения различных категорий пользователей. Библиотекари   научат как использовать Microsoft Office, как безопасно пользоваться Интернетом, как настроить учетные записи и оставаться в безопасности в социальных медиа , и многое другоеБиблиотекари  - технически продвинутые специалисты.   Мы должны знать, по крайней мере, основы компьютерных технологий. В большинстве случаев, мы знаем больше, и если мы не уверены в  точном ответе , то знаем, как его найти.Библиотекари - рекламодатели.  Библиотеки в основном  сами управляют своими связями с общественностью и рекламой собственных услуг и событий ( обычно почти без бюджета). Библиотекари  пишут пресс-релизы, ведут страницы в соцсетях, налаживают связи, а также создаютсвои собственные логотипы и графический дизайн. Когда дело доходит до графических программ,   библиотекари изучают их самостоятельноБиблиотекари - организаторы мероприятий.  Библиотеки каждый год проводят десятки мероприятий , поэтому  персонал библиотек должен рассчитать бюджет  и план  события,   привлечь  добровольцев или платных ведущих. Библиотекари  планируют   тему мероприятия, ,пишут сценарий, готовят угощение ... . Большинство деталей оформления, обычно, также сделано руками сотрудников библиотеки и т.д и т.п.Библиотекари исследователи.  Библиотекари не только знают, как организовать и найти информацию. Мы знаем, как собирать и анализировать информацию. Мы видим закономерности и может извлечь из них информацию. Например, вы когда-нибудь приходили в библиотеку с просьбой  рекомендовать почитать, что-нибудь такое же интеречное? Если это так, вас, вероятно, спросили о том, какой  тип книг вам нравится, если у вас  любимые авторы,   что привлекло вас в книге (место события, символы, юмор ...) и т.д. Все это были те вопросы,   которые помогли библиотекарю проанализировать ваши  вкусы  в книгах, для того, чтобы   предоставить вам книгу автора, творчество которого вы полюбите.

Late last year, the Bexar County Library, which serves the area around San Antonio, TX, set up BiblioTech, the first all-digital library in the United States. Without any physical books at all, the branch raised a few eyebrows, but head librarian Ashley Eklof tells Library Journal that after a few months, the ebook-and technology-centric project has been so successful it already has its own spinoff at the county courthouse.
