On the Level by Donalyn Miller

On the Level by Donalyn Miller | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it

Donalyn Miller writes: "Restricting children’s reading choices to books that fit within their reading level warps children’s positive reading identity development and their perceptions of what reading is. Requiring students to read books “at their level” at all times limits children’s reading choices and derails intrinsic motivation to read, which is driven by interest, choice, and reader’s purpose—not reading level."

Elizabeth Hutchinson's insight:
Interesting blog about why restricting children to reading levels is not conducive to engaging new readers. Personal choice is important.

The 31 Educational Web Tools Every Teacher Should Know about

The 31 Educational Web Tools Every Teacher Should Know about | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it
Below is a list I have been working on for the last couple of days. This list features some interesting web tools for teachers keen on integrating technology into their instruction and work routine. There are loads of web platforms that are educationally focused and to contain them all in one list is way beyond the scope of a short blog post like this , therefore I selected only what I deemed the most important.

 

Very good list. How many have you tried? -JL

Big leap for school libraries

Big leap for school libraries | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it

Steven Yates has a message for would-be school librarians. “If you’re coming to this because you like to read and you want to manage a collection of books, then you showed up about 30 years too late to the profession,” says Yates, a former high school librarian who teaches in the school library media certification program at the University of Alabama.

The school library’s mission—matching resources with those who need them—has not changed, he says. But its role is evolving: With materials increasingly offered online, schools are transforming their libraries into active places for students to work together and get creative, with staff who do much more than manage books.

The Critical 21st Century Skills Every Learner Needs and Why | #ModernEDUcation #ModernLEARNing | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it
Preparing a child for the world that doesn’t yet exist is not an easy task for any teacher. Step back and look at that picture from a broad perspective. What are the critical 21st-century skills every learner needs to survive and succeed in our world? What abilities and traits will serve them in a time that’s changing and developing so rapidly?


They want to be challenged and inspired in their learning. They want to collaborate and work with their peers. They want to incorporate the technology they love into their classroom experiences as much as they can. In short, they have just as high a set of expectations of their educators as their educators have of them.


How Are Educators Responding?


The Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority, (ACARA), have identified the following as the General Capabilities they see as essential for learners:


Critical and creative thinking


Personal and social capability


Ethical understanding


Intercultural understanding
