Concordance of Digital Tools | Hybrid Pedagogy: A digital journal of learning, teaching, and technology | Professional development of Librarians | Scoop.it

"Valuable teaching always involves contact with students in a way that makes their learning meaningful. A variety of tools enhance contact between teachers and their students in digital environments. On this page, we compile a growing list of useful tools for extending conversation or activities outside the boundaries of the traditional online or on-ground classroom."

A good, curated list of valuable tools to use in educational settings.Each is briefly described. This list is worth consulting due to the high level of credibility of the people behind the journal.

Why librarians (and therefore libraries) will always be better than Wikipedia, by Kimberly Matthews

Why librarians (and therefore libraries) will always be better than Wikipedia, by Kimberly Matthews | Professional development of Librarians | Scoop.it

"As librarians we protect our services, collections, and patrons from censorship and bias. Simply put- We do not allow it. From too much left or right wing material to too much sci-fi or mystery. At our core we begin from a place of balance, equality, representation, and non-censorship.  This is one of librarianship’s inherent characteristics that draw people to join the profession.

Interestingly I found this today:

Wikipedia Countering Systemic Bias Project

The Wikipedia project suffers systemic bias that naturally grows from its contributors’ demographic groups, manifesting an imbalanced coverage of a subject, thereby discriminating against the less represented demographic groups. …
This project aims to control and (possibly) eliminate the cultural perspective gaps made by the systemic bias, consciously focusing upon subjects and points of view neglected by the encyclopedia as a whole."

Gust MEES's curator insight, April 13, 1:28 PM

As educators one would expect that teachers and teacher/administrators should be experts on the best most effective and efficient methods of getting large groups of children to 

understand, learn, and use information responsibly to create more information. Theoretically, these educators have an understanding of pedagogy and methodology in order to accomplish these goals. I firmly believe most educators have these very skills to accomplish this with kids.

A question that haunts me however, at almost any education conference that I attend is: Why are so many (not all) of these educators, who are so skilled in a classroom of kids, so bad at teaching in a room full of adults for professional development?


According to an article, “Adult Learning Theory and Principles” from The Clinical Educator’s Resource Kit, Malcolm Knowles, an American practitioner and theorist of adult education, defined andragogy as “the art and science of helping adults learn”.

Knowles identified the six principles of adult learning as:

  • Adults are internally motivated and self-directed
  • Adults bring life experiences and knowledge to learning experiences
  • Adults are goal oriented
  • Adults are relevancy oriented
  • Adults are practical
  • Adult learners like to be respected

Florence Gilzene-Cheese's curator insight, April 13, 5:57 PM

This article raises an important question. Why do many educators struggle with engagement and metacognition when presenting to peers? As I read the article, I had my own question. Could we be so pumped to share knowledge that we forget that engagement matters or is it that we really fail to apply the strategies we know and love with our colleagues? I have no answers but I invite reflection and comments

Reinventing learning spaces | Learning with 'e's

Reinventing learning spaces | Learning with 'e's | Professional development of Librarians | Scoop.it

My most recent blog post, Hi-Tech Campus? highlighted the need for better design of learning spaces in higher education, but the principle applies to all educational environments. I outlined some inherent problems in my own university campus, and asked others on Twitter to suggest what they thought the campus of the future might look like. Actually, the campus of the future, wherever that may be, is already being reinvented right now, and the present and the future are blurring. The need for students to be able to access their content, peers and tutors at any time and in any place necessitates redesign of many environments around a typical university or school campus.
