Libguides - ett fantastiskt verktyg som jag själv skulle vilja erbjuda mina elever. Har varit i kontakt med leverantörerna - men mer har det inte blivit. Dessutom är verktyget knutet till det amerikanska katalogsystemet. Använder nu själv gratisverktyget Libguides - en simpel variant av Libguides :-)"The most widely used system for creating research guides and sharing knowledge. Reuse guide templates, share content, and help patrons focus their library research..."

Why K-12 schools are failing by not teaching SEARCH | The Thinking Stick

Why K-12 schools are failing by not teaching SEARCH | The Thinking Stick | News for librarians and teachers | Scoop.it

“I’m sorry the K-12 system has failed your students….they should know how to search by the time they get to college. But seeing that they don’t, until your students come prepared, you are going to have to pick up the slack.”

I then spent 30 minutes teaching university faculty how to search….because guess what……they didn’t know how to either. Which is exactly what I’ve come across with K-12 teachers, which helps to explain the unpreparedness of our students. So who is teaching our teachers the skills they need to teach our students?

Valuable insights to all librarians!

Beryl Morris's curator insight, April 3, 2013 9:05 AM

Convinced of the need to be a conent curator in my school - looking for the best way to start this, how to implement a manageable plan and ways to increase my content curation competency.

 

Lucy Wyatt's curator insight, October 7, 2013 12:44 PM

With students accessing different kinds of material and the same material in different ways, the OPAC and vertical file may not be the best way to lead your students to the best content.  This article shows differing ways of attacking the problem.
