John Dalziel's curator insight, October 7, 2013 2:51 PM

Flippity is a good tool that practitioners and or their learners can use to create flashcards for any number of topics.
Flippity...
- is a free tool for creating flashcards from data in a Google Spreadsheet.
- provides clear directions for the simple steps to take to create the flashcards.
To create flashcards use the Flippity template, enter the data, publish the spreadsheet to the web, then grab the Flippity link.
The Flippity link will take users to a Flippity page on which practitioners and their learners can flip through the flashcards. Flippity also includes a shuffle function and an option to remove cards from your deck of flashcards as users flip through them.

 

My first effort is at http://www.flippity.net/cards.asp?k=0AiqQd33EsQ_gdDhFWXZEdEVrQkdJUlVkQU1DR2t3Q3c

The SLA are currently discussing the possibilty of managing and supporting the School IL champions network after Phase IV of the WILP ends in March 2014. The SLA have had a presence on the steering group since the beginning of the project and would be well placed to advocate for IL being embedded in the curriculum. Their communications network and links with CILIP Schools Library Group would also help to extend the reach of IL awareness and best practice sharing. Our own project officer Gina Maddison has also been asked to join the committee of the CILIP Youth Libraries Group, further extending the reach of the IL message and helping to contextualise it's benefits to all ages of learners.

7 Pillars Of Digital Leadership In Education - TeachThought | School Info Lit Champions | Scoop.it

"As schools change leadership must as well.

 

With society becoming more and more reliant on technology it is incumbent upon leaders to harness the power of digital technologies in order to create school cultures that are transparent, relevant, meaningful, engaging, and inspiring. In order to set the stage for increasing achievement and to establish a greater sense of community pride for the work being done in our schools, we must begin to change the way we lead. To do this, leaders must understand the origins of fear and misconceptions that often surround the use of technology such as social media and mobile devices."
