Librarians gathered together for a one-day conference on ARLD Day 2012 (27 April) in Minnesota to engage, discuss and connect on the theme “Transliteracy: Constructing Knowledge and Networks and more.

 

Lane Wilkinson, Assistant Professor and reference and instruction librarian at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, advocated a new literacy taxonomy in his keynote presentation. Lane shared his views on "Wwhat is Transliteracy?

 

“Transliteracy is the ability to communicate meaning between media.  ...Transliteracy helps us promote literacy across technological barriers.”

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 3, 11:56 AM

The article makes it sound like interpretivism and positivism are either/or proposositions. John Dewey suggested we do not live in two separate worlds, subjective and objective, but that those worlds continously interact with each other as we make decisions. The only place we find clear separation, including in research, is in sitcoms like The Big Bang Theory. 

 

It is important for teachers to be familar with educational research and make sense of what outcomes mean in their settings.

Relative Citation Ratio (RCR): A new metric that uses citation rates to measure influence at the article level

Despite their recognized limitations, bibliometric assessments of scientific productivity have been widely adopted. We describe here an improved method that makes novel use of the co-citation network of each article to field-normalize the number of citations it has received. The resulting Relative Citation Ratio is article-level and field-independent, and provides an alternative to the invalid practice of using Journal Impact Factors to identify influential papers. To illustrate one application of our method, we analyzed 88,835 articles published between 2003 and 2010, and found that the National Institutes of Health awardees who authored those papers occupy relatively stable positions of influence across all disciplines. We demonstrate that the values generated by this method strongly correlate with the opinions of subject matter experts in biomedical research, and suggest that the same approach should be generally applicable to articles published in all areas of science. A beta version of iCite, our web tool for calculating Relative Citation Ratios of articles listed in PubMed, is available at https://icite.od.nih.gov .

John Dalziel's curator insight, January 11, 3:43 AM

This website lets users shorten their URLs so they’re easier to share on social media — or easier to type. TinyURL, from the vast number of similar sites, is least likely to be blocked by Internet filters.

Just go to tinyurl.com and enter the long URL you want to share, and TinyURL will make it short enough for students/learners to type. You can even customize it.

Great to have this collection of videos brought together with some context! Self-directed learning is not a requirement for mastery learning, but for more and more people that play in this space, it's the most powerful way to encourage mastery.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 4, 12:27 PM

The Einstein quote is important. Teachers are responsible for teaching and not student learning. That makes teaching an invitational process which is hard work. Many school managers and consultants do what they do because it is easier to speak in technical and instrumental jargon than in human and relational language.
