Students Say They Are Not as Tech Savvy as Educators Assume - EdSurge News | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it
In an interview with EdSurge, Alexandra Pickett, the Director of New York State University’s Center for Online Teaching Excellence, noted that many of her students know how to use online platforms such as Twitter and Facebook for fun, but have no idea how to leverage them for academic and professional use.

All online teachers know this. We coach the technology right along with the curriculum. 

MFaculty's curator insight, Today, 12:28 PM
This is the 'open secret' many dismiss out of hand. Rather than assuming all my students know how to use Google Drive, OneNote, Box.com and other online applications, I take the time to walk them through it when we need it in class. Some students can be hyper sensitive to negative feedback, and others don't want to be the one that slows the momentum of the class with questions everyone else seems to know the answers to.

Rather than expose any student to peer scrutiny, I make it a point to remind the class that not everyone has the same level of knowledge as I do, so I need to ensure we all start out on the same page. This interview corroborates my gut assessments.

8 of The Best Web Tools for Taking Students On Virtual Field Trips - EdTech & mLearning | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it
he Internet has brought the entire world right into our own homes. The world’s knowledge is just a click away. Our students have benefitted and continue to benefit from the wonders of the web in their own learning. Virtual field trips, the topic of our post today, is one simple example of how the web technologies have tremendously transformed learning and teaching. Without leaving their own desks and right from within their classroom, students get to visit popular world museums, explore ancient monuments in Egypt and Rome, tour major cities in the world using web tools that are readily available either for free or at a cheap cost. The collection we have for you today features an updated list of some of the best web technologies you can use with your students for virtual field trips. Check them out and share with us your feedback in our Facebook page.

The Transforming Role of Librarians (and Libraries)

The Transforming Role of Librarians (and Libraries) | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it

Susan K.S. Grisby writes: "Personalized professional development in schools has been a rising trend for years, but what many schools don’t realize is that their greatest asset for professional development is already in their building. The librarian, to be exact. Librarians and media specialists are some of the most highly trained, highly versatile staff a school has at their disposal. The library is not just “the room where the books are,” but the entry point for new, innovative technologies, as well as the hub from which those new technologies are introduced to the entire school."

Mary Reilley Clark's curator insight, May 24, 3:33 PM

I love Susan's insights here! Our libraries truly are the epicenter of our schools. If not, it's time to think about what you can do to change that. My favorite quote: "The key to a highly functioning library is the balance between print and digital, intimate and open, quiet and active, consumption and creation." That's a balancing act we deal with every day!

Elizabeth Hutchinson's comment, May 25, 2:23 AM
It's great to read such straight forward words about how school librarians can support teaching and learning. I's not rocket science to use the resources you already have in school :)

Beware online "filter bubbles" | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it
As web companies strive to tailor their services (including news and search results) to our personal tastes, there's a dangerous unintended consequence: We get trapped in a "filter bubble" and don't get exposed to information that could challenge or broaden our worldview. Eli Pariser argues powerfully that this will ultimately prove to be bad for us and bad for democracy.

Karen Draper's curator insight, May 16, 3:12 PM
Literacy is oft forgotten in the pursuit of STEM (STEAM) when it should go hand in hand. Libraries are at the forefront. Because of this, they are misunderstood and sometimes discarded as frivolous. I hope that the wake up call is heeded before too much damage is done.
