Anu Ojaranta's insight:

Great advocacy for school libraries!

From the text:

"First the basics. Number one: the Internet is a swamp of contradictory shit, advertising, and ‘ask anything’ forums with spectacularly misleading information. Much fiction is dressed up as fact. Teachers (remember I was one for eight years) spend half their time teaching pupils how to find reliable sources online (which, to be fair, is a vital life skill), but providing them with quality non-fiction books would have probably taught them more about the subject they were researching. Number two: librarians are experts."

While Maslow could not have envisaged this, it certainly does show how much easier it is for us to achieve some of our needs using technology.

New study: multitaskers have lower grey-matter density; link to poor attention, depression, anxiety | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it

"Simultaneously using mobile phones, laptops and other media devices could be changing the structure of our brains, according to new University of Sussex research.

 

A study published today (24 September) reveals that people who frequently use several media devices at the same time have lower grey-matter density in one particular region of the brain compared to those who use just one device occasionally."

5 Tips For Keeping Students On Task While Using Technology

5 Tips For Keeping Students On Task While Using Technology | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it

"Playing games, chatting with their friends, and browsing the internet are all likely suspects drawing your students’ attention away from whatever the task at hand happens to be, but just because students have access to technology doesn’t mean you have to transform into device police and forget about teaching. Even if your students would much rather be watching videos on YouTube than learning about the Roman Empire, you still have the upper hand: they want to be using the device. Period."

She knew she had to do something dramatic. So she flipped her classroom at Butler Middle School in Cottonwood Heights.
