Teacher/Librarian Collaboration – From a Teacher's Perspective

"The library is one of most the perfect places for beyond the classroom learning. It is the place where students are, or should be encouraged to explore other worlds, to develop their imagination, to think about the impossible. This process of inquiry is what makes learning a beautiful thing and this crucial step, the jewel, is something commonly missed when teachers plan a new unit of work. Sometimes we fail to go back to the basics. We replace simple words such as finding out and enjoyment with success and assessment. Often teachers can forget about the process and cast their eyes only to the outcome."

Managing tablets as learning tools in the classroom is not easy, especially when many kids use them largely as toys outside of school, if they have access to a tablet in their home environment. Here are some ideas on how to develop smart habits for class.

Wilfred Rubens's curator insight, August 4, 2:50 AM

Tony Bates is bezig met een nieuw boek over doceren in  het digitale tijdperk. Deze bijdrage is een concept tekst over leertheorieën en online leren. Bates gaat hierin o.a. in op het belang van leertheorieën, en op vijf 'leertheorieën'. Opvallend is de aparte aandacht voor online samenwerkend leren. Bates stelt dat leertheorieën beschrijven hoe mensen leren, maar niet automatisch aangeven wat dat betekent voor didactiek (hoe moet je doceren).

Flipping Utah schools: Lessons at home, homework in class | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it
Last school year, teacher Pam Loveridge faced her toughest group of students yet. Within a few months, nearly 40 of her 200 middle school math students were failing — much higher than the normal two. She knew she had to do something dramatic. So she flipped her classroom at Butler Middle School in Cottonwood Heights. Loveridge asked students to watch her recorded lessons on computers at home, and during class, ...

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 5, 7:37 PM

Are all children and youth more distracted? Yes, there may be more choices and children will need to treat choices like samplers they can take time with and savour each sample long enough to know if it is something that appeals to them. For that, they will need responsible adults in their lives i.e. teachers and parents.

MORE than 10 million Australians are ­library members and there are more than 110 million visits to libraries every year.

 

School library staff support student literacy – not only reading, but also information literacy (how to find things) and digital literacy (how to find and use information online and in electronic formats).

They are the go-to for cyber­safety, helping children stay safe online and they provide essential resources for teachers, based on their curriculum needs.
