Top Ed-Tech Trends: What's Changed from 2011 to 2012? - by Audrey Watters

Top Ed-Tech Trends: What's Changed from 2011 to 2012? - by Audrey Watters | Professional development of Librarians | Scoop.it

by AUDREY WATTERS:

"...the year’s major ed-tech developments. I’ve identified the 10 trends that I think have been 2012’s most interesting and important. I’ll string out the posts that cover these over the next 6 weeks — and not just because it’s time for the obligatory-end-of-year-wrap-up-crap posts that we bloggers churn out throughout the month of December. I find the reflection is useful (although time-consuming), and it’s a good process for me to go through all the news and all my writing to assess what’s innovative and what’s hype and what's changed and why."

"These things are the most important issues for librarians in schools
Get to know the content and structure of the curriculum, if you don’t already. Talk to teachers, staff parents and pupils. Talk to everyone. Network, talk to other librarians. Take every CPD opportunity you can get. Bid for money to supplement your budget, and keep good records so you can make your case clearly and effectively. Try and be innovative, use new technology when appropriate to improve the services you offer. Share ideas on mailing lists, blogs and wikis. Take an interest in your pupils and find out what really makes them tick. Be selective about how you spend your time: if it doesn’t help pupils or school staff, forget it.
Have fun, it’s a great job if it’s done properly.
