For the Year Ahead, What's Hot and What's Not in Ed Tech | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it
Our panel of experts determines which ed tech devices and practices are heating up, and which are losing steam, in 2013.

Lourense Das's insight:

All educators, including teacher/school librarians need to know what 'is hot or not' in educational technology, as we all use it daily in our professional work and our work with students

Teacher librarians need to be across what's hot and what's not as the trends do impact on the services delivered by the school library 24/7.

Dr. Laura Sheneman's curator insight, February 25, 2013 5:56 AM

Excellent list to examine and good points to ponder for why it's hot or lukewarm.

The League of Extraordinary Librarians: media specialists are leading the way as tech superheroes

The League of Extraordinary Librarians: media specialists are leading the way as tech superheroes | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

Meet the latest tech superheroes: school librarians. According to School Library Journal’s 2012 School Technology Survey, media specialists are leading the charge to bring new media, mobile devices, social apps, and web-based technologies into our nation’s classrooms.

 

So far, the results have been pretty impressive: 87 percent of school librarians report that they’re in charge of their library’s technology, with 60 percent adding that they’ve also introduced it into the classroom. Furthermore, 44 percent now serve on their school’s tech team, and in these budget-troubled times, when many library positions are on the line, that role may mean increased job security. In fact, 55 percent of the elementary, middle, and high school librarians that responded to our survey say that their tech skills have increased their value in administrators’ eyes.

At the Elizabeth Forward High School library in Elizabeth, PA, beanbag chairs have replaced study carrels, computers are everywhere, and instead of a cranky librarian telling kids to be quiet, there's a new music studio.

Anne McLean's curator insight, January 30, 2013 3:34 PM

School libraries need to be hip, cool and relevant to the demands of their school communities.  Kids love this modern approach and feel welcome in their school library.

Life in a Inquiry Driven, Technology-Embedded, Connected Classroom: Science | Powerful Learning Practice

Life in a Inquiry Driven, Technology-Embedded, Connected Classroom: Science | Powerful Learning Practice | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

I teach in an inquiry, project-based, technology embedded classroom. A mouthful, I know. So what does that mean? It means I lecture less, and my students explore more. It means that I create a classroom where students encounter concepts, via labs and other methods, before they necessarily understand all the specifics of what is happening.
