Will the iPhone 6 be solar powered? | Libraries, Learning, and Technology | Scoop.it

The iPhone 5S is less than six months old but buzzes about the iPhone 6 is becoming a hotter topic. Many people are wondering if it will be bigger or of the same size. Will it be joined by an iPhone 6C, or the iWatch and is it going to have standout features?

5 Myths About Why Millennials Leave You

5 Myths About Why Millennials Leave You | Libraries, Learning, and Technology | Scoop.it
When it comes to laments about Millennials in the workforce, I’ve heard it all. Millennials are this. Millennials are that. The truth is, Millennials are, in many ways, no different from any other generation that preceded them. Generation X, Baby Boomers, even the Silent Generation’s workers were considered entitled, arrogant, and flighty by the generation that came before them. So it’s time to clear a few things up by addressing these Millennial myths once and for all.

looks interesting and useful to add to the research on blended learning

HJJP's curator insight, August 20, 2014 11:16 PM

Single source education has never been very effective, I still remember those days of pure memorization. I was fortunate enough to have relatives that always asked me about what I learned... and they were not interested in me reciting the facts, they were interested in me telling them what I thought, how it impacted my life or those of others.... When I answered them, and they were happy with my answers, I actually got to understand what I had memorized, and certainly got to master the information in a more meaningful way.... It did not always help with getting excellent grades in exams, but I still accurately remember concepts I learned in 3rd grade.... I feel blended learning is the only way of teaching.... this will allow students to understand and implement complex concepts, catapulting them into much high learning than what we experienced 50 years ago.... or 40... or 30... even 20 or in many classrooms, a couple of days ago....

 

Hope to see many teachers utilizing these sort of blended learning... Current technology makes it so much easier...

A Straightforward Guide To Creative Commons

A Straightforward Guide To Creative Commons | Libraries, Learning, and Technology | Scoop.it

The internet has brought a significant amount of grey area to the world of citations and bibliographies. Students need to understand how to distinguish relevant, reliable material from the wasteland of trash that otherwise litters the internet. How do you cite a tweet, or other social media post? Is that considered ‘reliable’? And when it comes to sharing that information – especially on the internet- things get even hairier.

Interesting programming breadth and scope is only part of what this article covers:


By being responsive to the unique needs of their communities, libraries have taken on sometimes surprising roles. In Tulsa, Oklahoma, for example, the central branch of the City-County library has a case worker from the state’s Family and Children Services agency on hand four hours a day, five days a week. In Ann Arbor, Michigan, you can check out musical instruments, microscopes, telescopes, and home tools. In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, New York libraries offered direct assistance to residents who needed help rebuilding. The Sacramento Public Library in California hosts Punk Rock Aerobics, led by one of its librarians. Outside Rochester, New York, you can check out fishing poles. In Dallas, Texas, a public library facilitates Coffee and Conversations, one-hour sessions for the homeless; more than 70 people attended the second meeting. And in Woodbine, Iowa, you can borrow cake pans.

How To 'App Smash' And Implement Digital Storytelling On The iPad - Edudemic

How To 'App Smash' And Implement Digital Storytelling On The iPad - Edudemic | Libraries, Learning, and Technology | Scoop.it

by Nikolaos Chatzopoulos

 

"App smashing, the process of using more than one apps in conjunction with one another to create a final product, is a concept that allows students to create engaging educational projects and illustrate their creativity in multifaceted ways. One of the most gratifying and effective ways to use app smashing in the classroom is to create digital storytelling projects. The concept of digital storytelling is emerging as a form of personal and collective expression of knowledge, ideas, and perceptions. Its numerous and positive effects on students’ communication skills are well documented. Digital storytelling is the perfect vehicle for the delivery of visual and audio stimuli that greatly enhance a storyline or a simple narrative."
