Os ebooks são um tipo de aplicação multimédia que se impôs nos últimos anos como uma séria alternativa à tecnologia analógica baseada em papel, fruto das muitas vantagens que o suporte digital proporciona para melhorar a experiência da leitura. O Epic Book Guide, descrito neste artigo, é interessante na medida em que ajuda a compreender que apps de leitura de ebooks existem, como as utilizar, para que servem e onde as obter; onde e como descarregar ebooks em vários formatos a partir de sites online; onde encontrar edições gratuitas de livros eletrónicos na Internet e como desenvolver edições de autor em que cada pessoa pode publicar e distribuir um ebook da sua autoria.

The Need for the School Library

The Need for the School Library | School Libraries and more | Scoop.it
According to an article written for the Voice of San Diego, many of the
libraries in public schools across the city are not staffed.  The reason
for this lack of staff comes from, suprise, lack of funding, but also from
union rules that state librarians, library assistants and techs cannot be
replaced by a volunteer or staff that would replace the job of the above
positions in any meaningful way.  This causes the great support structure a
school librarian can give to a classroom, helping not only in research for
the students but for information for teachers.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 10, 3:24 AM

This detailed tutorial from California State University - Chico provides students with an opporunity to learn how to:'

* Investigate - What does this mean? To choose a topic you must first identify your topic. This section walks you through this concept, providing examples as well as having the student make decisions about specific areas based on what has been presented.

* Search -  Searching the web provides a vast amount of information that is unfiltered...so learn how to do effective and efficient searching, using key words and phrases, as well as learning about databases, scholarlly articles, popular articles and more.

* Locate - Finding information in a library or online requires that you undersand the system used to locate it and how to cite the resource. 

* Evaluate - Evaluating requires that you use higher order thinking skills and determine which information is accurate. The tutorial introduces the CRAAP test as a tool students may use. Is the information Correct, Relevant, Authority, Accuracy, and Purpose. Each "clue" is explored and you are given information to evaluate for each.

* Use - Learning how to put it together, taking the information you have learned it is time to communicate this to others. The form may vary but you still must be alert to issues such as plagiarism and the need to cite information. Again there are interactive components in the tutorial for students to practice with.

This is a great resource but it is written for the college level. It could be used with high school students and you might use sections with students in lower grades as a class tool.

Encourage parents you know to pass on the key habit of reading 20 minutes a day.  What a difference it makes! 

 

Now think about it professionally.  If you read 20 minutes a day about your profession, can you imagine all of the background knowledge you'd be building!
