The Case for Preserving the Pleasure of Deep Reading | MindShift

The Case for Preserving the Pleasure of Deep Reading | MindShift | Media Centers | Scoop.it

The deep reader, protected from distractions and attuned to the nuances of language, enters a state that psychologist Victor Nell, in a study of the psychology of pleasure reading, likens to a hypnotic trance. Nell found that when readers are enjoying the experience the most, the pace of their reading actually slows. The combination of fast, fluent decoding of words and slow, unhurried progress on the page gives deep readers time to enrich their reading with reflection, analysis, and their own memories and opinions. It gives them time to establish an intimate relationship with the author, the two of them engaged in an extended and ardent conversation like people falling in love.

School libraries without books

School libraries without books | Media Centers | Scoop.it

Imagine a newly modernized school with a built-in library/media center — but no books to put on the shelves. Actually, you don’t have to imagine.

Read about what’s going on with libraries in D.C. public schools (DCPS) in this open letter to Mayor Vincent Gray from D.C. resident and school library advocate Peter MacPherson.

In the Digital Age, What Becomes of the Library? | MindShift | Media Centers | Scoop.it

In a related Pew study on libraries and the Internet, one librarian told researchers, “I believe public libraries should move away from being ‘houses of knowledge’ and move more towards being ‘houses of access.’ This is what the public is asking for and we are here to serve them.” Beyond the use of technology, many librarians think in terms of access and information being closely linked, and believe that libraries still have a responsibility to both.

Access to culturally and linguistically appropriate books is the largest barrier to world literacy. Libraries and Digital Resources can solve this if we Unite for Literacy!

Flipped Classrooms, Librarians as "Defenders of Wisdom," and the Hottest Tech Tools | ISTE 2013 http://t.co/nznlMdZ8lw #iste13

 

By Tiffany Whitehead

The ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) Conference in San Antonio from June 23-26 offered unique opportunities for educators to interact, learn about the latest ed tech resources, and hear new ideas from education leaders. At a conference this size, it is impossible to see and do it all, but here are the highlights that librarians can take back to their schools in the fall.
