What Schools Are Really Blocking When They Block Social Media

What Schools Are Really Blocking When They Block Social Media | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it
Can social media be a distraction? Absolutely. Will some students access questionable content? Yes. But many students use social media to enhance their learning, expand the reach of the classroom and fashion their own personal learning networks.

learning concepts and strategies in the digital environment. The students will
actively participate in the Ph.D. Student seminars and discussions after the
lectures. They will choose a topic of interest from the lectures presented during the morning sessions and discuss it further with the lecturer during the afternoon group work sessions and informal meetings.

 

Many distinguished professors will give lectures and work with students/participants
in group work sessions, including Carol Kuhlthau and Ross Todd (Rutgers
University, USA), Sanda Erdelez (University of Missouri, USA), Virginia Walter

Call for Papers for School Libraries Worldwide - the only peer reviewed journal on school librarianship | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

International Perspectives on School Library Education: From Face to
Face to Distance Education (Volume 18, Number 2, July 2012)

 

This issue of School Libraries Worldwide will center on the theme
of International Perspectives on School Library Education: From Face to
Face to Distance Education. In the ten years since the last SLW issue
on school library education (see volume 6, number 2), much has happened to the profession of school librarianship and the way in which education programs are delivered. For this issue, we encourage papers that explore how changes in the profession as well as in education delivery systems have influenced school library education programs.

 

School Libraries Worldwide also welcomes submissions of excellent research on any topic relating to school librarianship for the open portion of the journal.

 

Deadline for submissions of full papers: April 15, 2012.

 

Authors interested in contributing to this issue should contact the guest editors, Allison G. Kaplan at agkaplan@wisc.edu
or Gail Dickinson at GDickins@odu.edu

 

Please see IASL web site for complete information about submitting a paper for this
issue: http://www.iasl-online.org/pubs/slw/slw_call.html

IBBY Congress - London 2012

IBBY Congress - London 2012 | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

PRESS RELEASE FEBRUARY 2012

Programme for Crossing Boundaries: Translations and Migrations

 

We’re delighted to say that the full programme for this exciting conference is now on
our website at http://www.ibbycongress2012.org/programme-outline.php

 

There is already a great line-up of speakers including Anthony Browne, Aidan
Chambers, Julia Donaldson, Jamila Gavin, Elizabeth Laird, Bart Moeyaert,
Michael Morpurgo, Beverley Naidoo, Michael Rosen and Shaun Tan. In addition we have some wonderful speakers in extra sessions sponsored by publishers – Kai Meyer, Anthea Bell, Verna Wilkins and Candy Gourlay to name but a few. Speakers for panel sessions will be announced in a few weeks time.

 

We received over 300 proposals for papers, and 140 of these have been selected for
the Congress. These will be given in parallel sessions on Friday 24th and Saturday 25th August. We are currently in the process of selecting poster sessions, and will announce these by the end of February.

 

Pre and Post Congress Tours

With our partners International Friends we have created a truly unique set of tours
focussing on children’s (and some adult) literature, from walking tours of the
London of Peter Pan, Shakespeare and Charles Dickens to days celebrating Green
Knowe, Tom’s Midnight Garden, Dickens, Harry Potter, Roald Dahl and the
literary heritage of Oxford. There are also longer tours: one exploring the
Lake District and the world of Beatrix Potter and Arthur Ransome, and the other
visiting Seven Stories and the Bronte’s’ Yorkshire. See them all at http://www.ibbycongress2012.org/programme-tours.php

 

Registration and accommodation

Registration and accommodation bookings are now open at http://www.ibbycongress2012.org/register.php

There has not been an IBBY World Congress in the UK for 30 years, and we want to make this the must-come-to event of the decade. If you haven’t booked yet, do it
now!

We hope that you will be able to share this information through your regular networks and are very grateful for your help in spreading the word and encouraging people to attend. We really appreciate the help of all the organisations who are so positive about the IBBY 2012 World Congress, and the support you are giving us.

Thank you

Understanding Information Overload :: Infogineering - Master Your Information

Understanding Information Overload :: Infogineering - Master Your Information | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

Information Overload is an increasing problem both in the workplace, and in life in general. Those that learn to deal with it effectively will have a major advantage in the next few years.


Information Overload is when you are trying to deal with more information than you are able to process to make sensible decisions. The result is either that you either delay making decisions, or that you make the wrong decisions.


It is now commonplace to be getting too many e-mails, reports and incoming messages to deal with them effectively.

Dennis, I was really stimulated by this piece today. Made a blog posting about it, shared the piece, and am in a great conversation on G+ with a bunch of folks about how "being social" actually helps us get past information overload. Thanks so much for sharing this!

I love this SCOOP!
