The 6-step guide to flipping your classroom - Daily Genius

The 6-step guide to flipping your classroom - Daily Genius | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it
It’s one of the most talked-about trends in education right now. Right behind the iPad and Common Core. Flipping your classroom is a trend that doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon. That’s great, because it offers a lot of advantages for your classroom regardless of your students’ age or what subject matter you’re presenting in your classroom. If you’re new to the concept, flipping your classroom can feel a little bit overwhelming: How much should I switch around? What is best for the classroom vs at home? Why am I doing this again anyway?

Via Dennis T OConnor
Elizabeth Hutchinson's insight:

I would really like to try this but as a school librarian I don't have lessons I can give out content to the students first as I generally teach one off lessons. Do any librarians teach using flipped learning and if so how does it work for you?

Libraries Are Not a "Netflix" for Books - BOOK RIOT | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it
If there’s one phrase I dislike more than the latest company touting itself as the “Netflix for books,” it’s when the retort is that such a thing already exists and it’s called the library. The library is not a Netflix for books.

"Case in point: Monticello High School in Charlottesville, Virginia. When librarian Joan Ackroyd arrived there four years ago, she found an environment very different from the “engaging, creative, fun” elementary and middle school libraries to which she was accustomed. “Its library was none of those things,” she recalls. “It was a traditional, quiet research space.”

Information Overload? 10 Ways You & Your Students Can Deal With It - Open Culture

Information Overload? 10 Ways You & Your Students Can Deal With It - Open Culture | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it

"If you read the Internet 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, it would take you 57,000 years to reach the end. You could bind the pages in a 10,000-foot-tall book weighing 1.2 billion pounds. Printing it would require half a million liters of ink, which is the volume of fuel it would take to power a 747 jet leaving New York and heading east to Tokyo. It would use enough paper to cover half of Long Island, or twice the number of trees in Central Park. If the Ancient Babylonians had started printing the Internet in 1800 BC, they’d be done right about now!"

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 8, 8:30 PM

To say there is a massive amount of information that comes our way each day is not an understatement. How we deal with information is a different question. If you are feeling overwhelmed but it, or your students are feeling overwhelmed, then you may want to read this post.

Did you know that researchers say that it is "our inability to organize and process it...without experience cognitive overload." The Internet keeps providing us with "just one more link" so knowing when to stop is difficult. 

After this discussion the post looks at Concerns for Students and Teachers, discussing eleven areas such as:

* Distractedness

* Mobility madness

* Impaired research skills

Each of these areas are described.

The final section looks at Management Techniques, beginning by looking at a number of ways people have attempted to map the Internet before moving on to a list of ten management techniques that may help you (and your students) prevent information overload including:

* Help students understand the structure of the web and the concept of networking

* Hone your research skills and help students hone theirs

* Use activity streams

Additional information on these techniques (and seven more) are in the post. 

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, April 8, 9:15 PM

This is an excellent article if you are suffering Internet fatigue. We are taking in more and more information than our brain can process about so many general things, rather than specialising like we used to. According to the article, the feeling of being digitally overwhelmed comes from "our inability to organise and process it...without experiencing cognitive overload." The Internet keeps providing us with "just one more link" so knowing when to stop is difficult. 

There is a section called 'Concerns for Students' which is quite insightful.

Wikipedia:The Wikipedia Adventure

The Wikipedia Adventure: An interactive tutorial for new editors Wikipedia is not a game, but learning it should still be fun Problem: Wikipedia is a very difficult environment for new users. In addition to a new interface, the community has its own policies and customs; and that is on top of the already challenging task of approaching the world of information with critical thinking and neutrality.

Elizabeth Hutchinson's insight:

If Wikipedia is to become a good research tool then the only way to use it is to understand it. Have a go at the easy to use game which helps understand how it all works. I think students will really enjoy this.

The Need for the School Library

The Need for the School Library | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it
According to an article written for the Voice of San Diego, many of the
libraries in public schools across the city are not staffed.  The reason
for this lack of staff comes from, suprise, lack of funding, but also from
union rules that state librarians, library assistants and techs cannot be
replaced by a volunteer or staff that would replace the job of the above
positions in any meaningful way.  This causes the great support structure a
school librarian can give to a classroom, helping not only in research for
the students but for information for teachers.
