How are the learners going to use the information?
How will they demonstrate their learning?
Are they completing a document, creating an outline or answering a set of questions?
What are the assessments associated with the material?"

20 iPad Apps To Teach Elementary Reading

20 iPad Apps To Teach Elementary Reading | Reading and school libraries | Scoop.it

"As anyone with a toddler knows, iPads are addictive for children. They seem to have some sort of special radar that lets them know when an iDevice is within their reach, and they’ll do anything they can to get their hands on them. Resistance is futile, but instead of lamenting excessive screen time, you can make your child’s iPad addiction a productive one with educational apps, including those that promote early reading."

Moving at the Speed of Creativity - Lessons Learned using VoiceThread for iPad | Reading and school libraries | Scoop.it

It’s been a few years since she last made a VoiceThread book report, so since the VT iPad app is now available I figured this would be a perfect chance to put it through its paces. We had fun and were successful making the VoiceThread book report. Here are a few of our lessons learned.

Here, we outline six elements of instruction that every child should experience every day. Each of these elements can be implemented in any district and any school, with any curriculum or set of materials, and without additional funds.

Content Curation: A Key Skill Needed By 21st-Century School Librarians

Content Curation: A Key Skill Needed By 21st-Century School Librarians | Reading and school libraries | Scoop.it

Robin Good: School librarians may be one of the new change-making roles in the educational revolution silently taking place. Their role as organizers, collectors and guides to relevant information is a skillset that is not only in growing demand by the marketplace, but which perfectly fits the learning needs of today students / tomorrow information workers.


Joyce Valenza and Shannon Miller, who recently presented at the Building Learning Communities conference, think that we are about to witness a "golden age" of librarianship and that there are five skills that information / school librarians need to cultivate.


The first of these is curation.


"Given the unprecedented quantity of information learners are exposed to, the librarian’s role is more important than ever.


Librarians help all students gain access to, evaluate, ethically use, create, share, and synthesize information.


...


Students have long documented their research in notebooks, bibliographies, and research papers, but the presenters described these containers as inadequate for the digital landscape.


In the 20th century, content was king, but in this millennium, curation has emerged as the new monarch.


Valenza and Miller highlighted emerging technologies that help students showcase their progress as they acquire, organize, contextualize, and archive both existing content and new learning.


...The presenters stressed the value of teaching learners to purposefully contribute to society’s collective intelligence.


...


School librarians, with their specialized training and background in collecting, organizing, preserving, and disseminating information, must now teach their patrons—students and educators alike—to perform these tasks."


Relevant. 7/10
