Teaching Students Skills to become Better Online Readers

Teaching Students Skills to become Better Online Readers | School Libraries and more | Scoop.it

Soon after Maryanne Wolf published “Proust and the Squid,” a history of the science and the development of the reading brain from antiquity to the twenty-first century, she began to receive letters from readers. Hundreds of them. While the backgrounds of the writers varied, a theme began to emerge: the more reading moved online, the less students seemed to understand."

Reading on line...a good habit? Here to stay?

Helen Teague's curator insight, August 3, 6:36 AM
Do students retain more information when they read from books rather than from digital devices? Does reading online present challenges due to distractions? Do students need to be taught skills to become better online readers?
Ruby Day's curator insight, August 3, 2:21 PM

Studies show we are not reading as effectively online as we are with hard copies. This highlights the need for tools to help us read deeper online - e.g annotation type tools. This links to an interesting stuy of year 5 students using collaborative annotation software demonstrating higher performance than the control group's' paper based annotation.

Canva was kind enough to take a great pdf file that Richard Bryne created on 10 Google Search Tips All Students Can Use and create an infographic. Since we know visuals are important to many learners, take the time to check this out and to share it with your students. Also remember that many search techniques that work with Google also work with other search engines.

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice | School Libraries and more | Scoop.it

Ibrar Bhatt writes: "Digital curation therefore is not just about finding relevant material, although that is a significant part of it, but is also about creating a specific and unique experience by utilising the resulting materials which then become contextualised within a new space. A curator, therefore, whether she is a journalist-by-proxy such as Popova or a student completing an assignment in a classroom, not only collects and interprets, but also creates a new experience with it. In this respect, curation is a process of problem solving, re-assembling,re-creating, and stewardship of other people’s writing."

Some good news from the Chicago Tribune: Employment of librarians is expected to grow 7 percent by 2022, slower than average compared to other occupations. In the future, fewer librarians are expected to be needed as the public becomes more adept at using electronic resources, but at the same time, the rise in electronic information is expected to boost the demand for librarians who know how to do research..
