Adding to the e-book mayhem

Adding to the e-book mayhem | Middle School Mania | Scoop.it

The new Follett Digital Reader app will allow students to check out books to their mobile devices from the Follett SHelf, a collection of e-books that the library can build. Follett’s pricing is very appealing to schools, as they aren’t charging an annual fee (this continues their policy of not doing that) nor will they be charging an additional “mark-up” for e-book content.  The Follett Shelf product also stands alone from Destiny, so if a district doesn’t have Destiny, they could have the Follett Shelf book collection for student check-out.

Fake websites, Spoof websites, science spoofs, commercial fake sites

"Librarians and educators need to be able to illustrate to students and users alike that websites cannot always be trusted to provide truthful and accurate data. This page provides examples of websites that are full of lies, inaccuracies or false information - either for amusement or for more worrying reasons. The list does not include phishing sites however; these are intended to fool a person into believing that they are visiting a legitimate bank site for example; there are already plenty of links to these online already."
