i'd love to hear from school districts with great relationships with their public library.
Kristen McCloskey's comment, March 15, 2013 10:01 AM
Proud to say our high school library offers many of these services. We need to work much more on bridging the gap with the community.

Schools We Can Envy by Diane Ravitch

Schools We Can Envy by Diane Ravitch | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it
To an American observer, the most remarkable fact about Finnish education is that students do not take any standardized tests until the end of high school. They do take tests, but the tests are drawn up by their own teachers, not by a multinational testing corporation. The Finnish nine-year comprehensive school is a “standardized testing-free zone,” where children are encouraged “to know, to create, and to sustain natural curiosity.”

we seem to talk about instructor role so rarely that she becomes not only intangible, but at times invisible. Part of the problem seems to be that we’ve conflated instructor role with “authority,” and we’ve regarded authority as a dirty word

The Trouble With Teen Programming | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it
Forget centralized programming, adapted kid activities, and advisory boards. Teen activities should be patron-driven, dynamic, and constantly in flux.

Libraries are too often settling with "they are not interesteg". How to engage teens more?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, October 3, 11:32 AM

When we rely on outcomes as the measure, we miss the relational aspects of learning which entails the complex conversations around curricula. Deep learning could draw some of its philosophy from deep ecology which thinks not in terms of just outcomes, but about the context and conversations.

Audrey's curator insight, October 5, 4:35 PM

Creative thinking, analytical thinking, learning styles for different types of information, active rather than passive learning.  All of these start from a young age. 

 

All parents can encourage their children to use their brain - home learning is for every child, even those who go to school.

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."
