i'd love to hear from school districts with great relationships with their public library.

Proud to say our high school library offers many of these services. We need to work much more on bridging the gap with the community.

Yes... if search savvy also means capability to distinguish between false and right info, to take time for a proper analysis, to develop a critical mindset.

New International Study by Research Now with Support of K&A BrandResearch Gives Insight into How the ‘Digital Generation’ Behaves on the Internet

The study of 2,490 respondents aged 12 – 17 years old from the US, Poland, Germany and the UK, looked at how this new digital generation connects with the internet, what they do online, and how they feel about digital and traditional advertisements.

The survey found that teenagers in all four markets enjoy unlimited and unsupervised access to the internet. Respondents reported that they are able to go online as long and as often as they wish, they do not need to ask for parental permission, and only in Germany are teenagers required to share internet access with siblings. 62% of the young people surveyed report that they go online every single day - 46% several times a day. Age does not make a big difference when comparing the amount of time teens spend on the net. There is no sudden explosion in internet use at the age of 16; more a gradual increase in the amount of time spent online as children age. Of those who go online several times a day, 11% are 12 years old and 21% are 17 years old. Teenagers in the UK and Poland use the internet 20% more often than their counterparts in Germany and America.

Why teens go online
The top reason why teens go online, cited by 92% of respondents, is to find out information – ‘looking up things I don’t know.’ The second most popular activity is finding out about events and what’s happening, with 83% of teens doing this. Next, young people use the internet to research public transport and ‘window shop’ (researching and browsing for items), with 74% saying that’s why they go online. Teenagers in Poland use the internet to search for and purchase products more frequently than their international counterparts. Overall, only 35% of teens say they actually purchase items online. After ‘window shopping,’ the most popular activity is playing games, with 73% of teens going online to do this.

Devices used to access the internet
Roughly one-third of the teens surveyed from each country go on the internet most often via a PC or laptop. The additional two-thirds reported accessing the internet through a tablet, smart phone, video game console, television or other device. According to the survey, 27% of British teens go online via their smart phones, whilst fewer American (11%), German (9%) and Polish (2%) teens use their smart phone to get online.

What teenagers search for and buy
Music and CDs are the most popular items to search for online. Teens in Poland, however, search for online games more than music (64% in Poland as opposed to 59% in the US; 57% in the UK; and 56% in Germany). Shoes are also a popular search item among British (62%) and Polish (57%) teens, but not as popular among German (53%) and American (42%) teens.

Just-for-Me Training by Screencasting - American Libraries

Just-for-Me Training by Screencasting - American Libraries | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it

By Meredith Farkas:
Librarians in all types of libraries provide training and instruction. Whether it's for staff or patrons, the timing of the training is usually critical.

 

"Even when we get the timing right, infrequent use of a tool on which people were trained will lead to forgetting. [...]

Screencasting software, technology that creates a video of activity on the computer screen along with the user’s narration, is sometimes used to solve this problem. The software allows a trainer to create videos that show specific processes within a web system so that users who have gone through a training can refresh their memory with a video later on."

'Essential questions' are all too often lower order. And not that essential.

 

When we're working with schools on our Design Thinking School programme, one of the easiest ways to explain what we're looking for in the way a project is set, is whether the statement or questions being asked can be Googled easily: is this a Googleable or Not Googleable topic?
