This is the face of the library - active learning is everywhere!!!!
Anita Vance's curator insight, April 21, 2013 12:38 PM

Active learning - at YOUR neighborhood library - finding and using the best resources - with the help of your local librarian. It's not just books, anymore. Learning and literacy incorporates information from EVERWHERE.

David Sanger's curator insight, April 27, 2013 7:57 PM

The Innovative Educator: Parents & Teachers Tell Pearson What They Think About Their Attempt to Demystify Testing

The Innovative Educator: Parents & Teachers Tell Pearson What They Think About Their Attempt to Demystify Testing | Literacy Instruction | Scoop.it

via @kjarrett Upset by what they claimed was misinformation and misperceptions permeated by media coverage, Pearson made a botched attempt to launch a social media campaign (see the internal memo) to “demystify testing for parents.”
Pearson employees spent the day censoring comments but as the 9 - 5ers left the office, parents and teachers came on duty to send a loud and clear message to Pearson: “We’re not mystified. We don’t want your tests.”

• Check out laptops, iPads or calculators

• Go beyond Wikipedia and Google

Term papers and theses rely on more than a simple Google search. Professors encourage students to use scholarly and peer-reviewed articles.

University libraries have more than 600 databases...
