7 tips for making your principal your ally

7 tips for making your principal your ally | School libraries K- 12 | Scoop.it
 
Librarians, you cannot afford to have an adversarial relationship with their principals. You cannot even afford principals who are "agents of benevolent neglect." You need an administrator who actively supports you and your program.

Content Curation Tool: eduClipper Launches Its "Pinterest For Education"

Content Curation Tool: eduClipper Launches Its "Pinterest For Education" | School libraries K- 12 | Scoop.it

Excerpted from review article on TechCrunch:
"This week the teacher-turned-entrepreneur Adam Below officially launched eduClipper, a platform that allows teachers and students to explore, share and contribute to a library of educational content. In both function and design, it’s essentially a Pinterest for education, with one notable difference: Because eduClipper is built exclusively for teachers and students, unlike Pinterest, you probably won’t find it blocked by your local school.

Educators and students can explore thousands of pieces of educational content, find lesson plans, resources and videos and search for the most popular content by subject or interest.

With eduClipper, users can share individual eduClips (or pieces of content) or eduClipboards (collections of content) with colleagues or students while cross-posting or embedding that content on other social platforms or sending them through email.

EduClips are created through the site’s bookmarklet (a Chrome extension), so once it’s installed in their browsers, teachers and students can grab any content they find on the web, Google Drive, Google Apps and more, and add them to their collection, i.e. their eduClipboards. Once grabbed, the site automatically grabs the source link, too, so that it’s easy to get back to the original content and easy to give proper citation.

Teachers and students can share these clipboards so that their classmates and colleagues can collaborate on assignments or in-class activities, create groups to share these resources with and align the content that’s clipped and shared to Common Core Standards. That’s the big advantage of eduClipper over Pinterest, that content can easily be organized and annotated for each class or subject by way of these learning collections. It also has the benefit of being created by a teacher who has spent the last five years searching for and curating the web’s best educational content..."

Bart van Maanen's curator insight, June 10, 2013 6:30 AM

Zo te zien een prachtige manier om op een Pinterest-achtige manier online info en content te verzamelen voor in de klas. Iedere leerling kan er aan bijdragen en notities toevoegen via een bookmark app in Chrome. De originele link / vindplaats wordt tegelijk opgeslagen. Nice.

Globally we continue to see the impact of budget cuts on staffing. Interesting that schools are investing in more computers - go figure!
