Teacher librarians crucial in info age

Teacher librarians crucial in info age | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it

"This leads me to a modern myth that needs busting: that of the capabilities of the ''digital native'', defined by Oxford as ''a person born or brought up during the age of digital technology''. The myth is that because these children have grown up with technology, they are ''naturally'' information literate. Being able to independently intuit how to play Angry Birds is a far cry from being able to critically evaluate a subtly biased website."

 

Well said - being born in the digital age is no guarantee of being digitally literate...

Many key questions about learning in the classroom can be boiled down to, “What should I do next?” From a teacher’s viewpoint, this question can mean, “Which topic should I teach next?” or “Do students need more review or are they ready to move on?” For a student, “what should I do next?” can mean,…

MOOCs, Information Literacy and the role of the librarian (slides) | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it

"Sheila Webber will start by briefly outlining some general characteristics of MOOCs and her own experience with them. She will go on to identify types of MOOC and the implications for MOOC pedagogy. As part of this discussion she will note some findings from an investigation into the value of learning analytics for MOOC educators (undertaken by Naomi Colhoun at Sheffield University in summer 2014). In the final part of her presentation she will reflect on the various roles that have been, or could be, adopted by librarians."

There's always a danger in trying to make predictions, but this is a handy summary of the way trends are looking at the moment. There's nothing startling in the list, though.

Finding copyright-friendly photos for the Google Images generation | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it

Searching and citing usable images is easy once students learn the basics. Teaching students to respect the intellectual property of others is important in this digital “cut and paste” world we live in. One great project to share with students that can better help them understand how and when they may use images created by others is the Creative Commons project.

Critical Thinking Questions Students Should Be Able to Ask ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Critical Thinking Questions Students Should Be Able to Ask ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it

Critical thinking requires a special set of questions that have the ability to activate higher order thinking skills and therefore enable students to evaluate, synthesize, apply, analyze and interpret information. These questions are usually open in nature and tend to foster divergent thinking. Prince George’s County provides a very good explanation of each of these kinds of questions with examples of each category.

Here's What Some Teens Are Using Instead Of Snapchat And Instagram To Share Pictures In Class - Business Insider | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it

"I went home last week and did everything one normally does over the holidays: I got together with my family and, in the spirit of Christmas, grilled my teenage cousins about what apps they're using on their iPhones.

 

They named two of the usual suspects, Snapchat and Instagram. They laughed in my face when I asked what they thought about Facebook. "It's for moms," one explained to me. 

 

Insightful, but not out of the ordinary. Then my 13-year-old cousin asked me if I knew what AirDrop was."

Useful for keeping up to date with new social networks used by teenagers.  It is important to do this so that educators and parents can teach students how to best use a social network, whilst also keeping themselves safe.
