I see no reason to doubt this list. It is in accordance with my anecdotal evidence. Tension may arise around teachers not being convinced of the content of the list or the depth of penetration of these trends into the lives of students and some teachers/schools.

I guess these are some of the reasons why high levels of attrition take place even in some of the reputed organisations all over the world. Retention of trained staff becomes an issue when there is a feeling of disconnect in their minds. Good organisations need to take care of their staff if they expect the same from their staff. An experienced and well-entrenched staff is an asset whose value can never be measured in terms of money!

If you're a die-hard Gmail fan like me, these tips will help you if you didn't already know about them. My favorite is the "undo send" feature that you can set up with a time frame - allows you to unsend something within 30 seconds for those moments when you notice the glaring typo AFTER hitting the send key!

Criticism Is Not Feedback | #LEARNing2LEARN #Coaching #ModernEDU | Mount Library | Scoop.it
Are You Open to Feedback?

Some people avoid feedback like the plague. They think that if they don’t know their flaws, they don’t have any. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that these folks make the same mistakes over and over again. Other people evade constructive feedback by surrounding themselves with yes people. They’d rather receive confirmation of their own ideas than be challenged by opposing views. While that might do wonders for their ego, it does little to advance their cause. The fact is, surrounding yourself with yes people is like talking to yourself.

Feedback should be welcomed rather than feared.

 

In fact, we should thank folks who make the effort to nurture us with their valuable input –– even if it hurts at times. How do you expect to become a better person if you don’t know where to begin? The truth is, practice doesn’t make perfect if you’re doing it wrong. Feedback enables us to learn about our shortcomings and take corrective action. Don’t bury your head…nourish it. That’s how excellence is born.

6 Active Learning Spaces Your Library Should Have | Knowledge Quest | Mount Library | Scoop.it

Diana Rendina writes: "In the book Get Active: Reimagining Learning Spaces for Student Success, the authors identify six types of active learning spaces that are essential for creating an engaging learning environment for students. While this research (and this book) are not specifically focused on school libraries, we are the ideal place in our schools to encompass all six types of learning spaces in one location. We are the learning hubs of our schools after all. :)"

We're busy constructing our timeline to do some low-cost library remodeling/reconfiguring this summer. We're hoping to relocate our large group presentation space to a darker area of the library so everyone can SEE what's on the screen! That will give us room for collaborative and small group workspace. Of course, extensive weeding is the first step so we can free up some floor space!
