Five-Minute Film Festival: Learn to Use Web 2.0 Tools

Five-Minute Film Festival: Learn to Use Web 2.0 Tools | media specialists | Scoop.it

While many of you may be heading for the beach this week, it won't be long before you're ready to start exploring some new tools to help your students be better creators and collaborators when you go back to school in the fall. This week we published a new video on Nicole Dalesio, a fifth-grade teacher who uses all kinds of free technology tools in her class to keep her kids engaged, and it inspired me to go hunt down the best tutorials for all these great, free Web 2.0 tools. Did I mention most of them are free?

Five key roles for 21st-century school librarians - eSchool News | media specialists | Scoop.it

According to Joyce Valenza, teacher librarian at Springfield Township High School in Pennsylvania and author of School Library Journal’s “Never Ending Search” blog, this is the golden age of librarianship.

Co-presenting a session at educational technology leader Alan November’s 2012 Building Learning Communities (BLC) conference on July 19 with Shannon McClintock Miller, district librarian and technology integration specialist at Van Meter Schools in Iowa, Valenza outlined five areas in which K-12 schools should turn to their librarians to empower learners with valuable 21st-century college and career readiness skills.

........And finally, what better to flip than the library?  Library instruction is ripe for flipping too. In fact, many of us already maintain a comprehensive virtual library.  And many of those virtual libraries curate learning material from our video channels, poster archives, slide archives, guides to projects and lessons and tools. We share our professional development, lessons, and tutorials in effective questioning, searching, documentation, thesis building, research strategies and more.
