Web-based Version of Blooms Taxonomy (30+ digital tools ) ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

One of the main objectives underlying our work as 21st century teachers and educators is to use technology to create innovative, creative, and engaging learning environments for our students.The focus now has been shifted from whether or not to use technology to how to use this technology to improve teaching and learning.

Karen Bonanno's insight:

A great site with tools linked to each of the Blooms Taxonomy stages of development.

Libarians: The NEW Digital Leader - Project Tomorrow | Speak Up | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

In many schools across the country, the roles of the librarian and media specialist are gaining in importance as the use of digital content within classroom instruction takes a center stage position. Speak Up has been following this trend for several years, and I am excited by the emergence of the librarian as a digital leader within the school community.

Libraries as Enablers of Pedagogical and Curricular Change | Adademic settings

Libraries as Enablers of Pedagogical and Curricular Change | Adademic settings | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

Dramatic changes have taken place in academic libraries over the past decade or so. Many libraries have renovated — or are planning to renovate — their space to create information or learning commons, incorporating technologies and collaborative spaces for students into spaces previously dedicated to print volumes and furniture for individual, quiet study.

Recent research emphasises this importance. A study by the Institute of Education (2013) found reading for pleasure ‘to be more important for children's cognitive development between ages 10 and 16 than their parents' level of education.’  Similarly a study by Oxford University (2011) found ‘16-year-olds who read books at least once a month were significantly more likely to be in a professional or managerial job at 33 than those who didn’t read books at all’.
