Linda Alexander's comment, November 13, 2013 9:18 AM
The results are surprisingly positive. I think their sample size is too small to make these broad conclusions. 100 teachers isn't really a very significant group. I wonder if it was a random sampling or did they reach out to contacts? It just seems to inflated to me. Thanks so much for sharing, however, Gust. I would be interested in your thoughts....

20 Classic YA Literature Heroines, Ranked - Flavorwire | School Libraries make a difference | Scoop.it

Here are 20 classic girl heroines of literature, ranked, from a 2013 vantage. Rules: I tried, with only a couple of exceptions, to stick to one character per oeuvre or author. I also didn’t worry too much about what my take on these girls might have been as a kid; just looking at their stories now, I came up with their advantages and disadvantages. Feel free to weigh in when you disagree with me!

Reading. Writing. Math. Those are the big ones, right? Up until recently, a lot of people would have probably said that was correct. But since it is 2013 and so much of our lives happen online, digital literacy is being added to the list.

Veronica Roth Explains Why Shocking 'Allegiant' Death Had To Happen - MTV.com | School Libraries make a difference | Scoop.it

"Allegiant" — the final installment of Veronica Roth's best-selling "Divergent" series — has been in readers' hands and on their Kindles for nearly a week now, meaning fans finally know the fate of heroine Tris Prior and her love, Tobias Eaton. The heart-wrenching conclusion no doubt surprised many — with fans galore taking to social media to cry, commiserate or complain about Roth's vision for the characters she so lovingly crafted over the trilogy.

Teacher knowledge for 21st century learning

Teacher knowledge for 21st century learning | School Libraries make a difference | Scoop.it

This article offers a critical review of the literature on 21st century knowledge frameworks, with a particular focus on what this means for teachers and teacher educators.

 

The authors accomplish this by identifying common themes and knowledge domains in 15 reports, books, and articles that describe the kinds of knowledge that researchers state are integral and important for success in the 21st century.

 

The authors argue that seemingly disparate frameworks converge on three types of knowledge, as necessary for the 21st century: foundational, meta, and humanistic. Although 21st century frameworks are thought to advocate new types of knowledge, little has actually changed in the new century with respect to the overall goals of education.

 

Despite this sense of continuity, significant changes related to how technologies change all three types of knowledge need to be conveyed.

 

The article ends with specific conclusions and recommendations for teacher education.

21st Century Technology Skills Are a Core Competency for Today’s Graduates

21st Century Technology Skills Are a Core Competency for Today’s Graduates | School Libraries make a difference | Scoop.it
Our students need to be comfortable with the information technologies that are inextricably linked to the 21st century skills the work place requires, and teachers need to help pave the way.

Some of the skills commonly being cited as vital in today’s workforce include:

 

 

 

- The ability to communicate effectively orally and in writing (with almost all of today’s written communications in business being conducted digitally).

 

- Teamwork skills and the ability to collaborate with others in diverse groups settings (and information technologies are increasingly essential to many forms of organizational collaboration).

 

- The ability to innovate and be creative (today’s information technologies empower innovate and creative capabilities in ways not previously envisioned).

 

- The ability to locate, organize, and evaluate information from multiple sources.
