Googleable vs Non-Googleable Questions \ The Lab | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it
'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?

I ran TeachMeet style CPD last year (in my own time) explaining and showing how to incorporate into the classroom or PLN; much of which was not taken on board. I covered and could do all 36!

Well done Linda. Sorry the question sounded like an attack...it was ment to be a general question for everyone :) How frustrating that all your hard work fell on deaf ears. You can only keep trying.
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, March 8, 2013 7:17 PM

These are the 36 digital things that a 21st Century Teacher Should Be Able To Do. I do not have a problem with that, but they exclude the relational things we need to do and we should not.

"Twitter bookmarks way outnumber all the other bookmarks I have in my Chrome browser. Whenever I come across a video, a guide, a tutorial, a graphic, or a well written article on Twitter I automatically add it to this list of bookmarks and from time to time I refer to these bookmarks to select for the content I want to share with you here as is the case with the awesome graphic below. I am also working on  a term paper for my  MA Ed  here in the Mount University. This paper is about  the use of twitter as a professional development tool for teachers and which I will share with you in PDF format once it is submitted .

Today I am sharing with you this great graphic from Langwitches. check it out below and share with use what you think of it.Enjoy"

School librarians need to move outside of the library's walls. We must be tech literate and teach technology integrated with library information-seeking skills and literacies.

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."
