22 Rules of Story Telling every Teacher should Know about

22 Rules of Story Telling every Teacher should Know about | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

"Writing is a scary task  for students because  it is partly a single-minded activity that calls for a lot of serious thinking and partly due to the overarching focus that has being placed on teaching writing as product and not  process. Donald Murray, a writing theorist of grand calbire, is unequivocal on this, in his Write to Learn  , Murray emphasizes the importance of teaching writing as a process. For him the problem with teachers of writing is that they are trained as teachers by studying a product and when they are  teaching writing  to their students, they basically focus their attention on what students have produced and not  what they might have done."

Library Design for the 21st Century Learner: Slideshare

Carolyn Foote, Westlake High School Library & library’s architect presented a case study at the CEFPI (Council of Educational Facility Planners International) Southern Conference in Austin.  Carolyn said it was fascinating presenting to such a different audience (mostly architects and facility directors) who are deeply trying to grapple with issues facing education.  She attended other sessions as well and listened as they struggled to make sense of the same issues we as educators debate–standardized test scores, the impact of technology, the value of a library, etc.

Karen Bonanno's insight:

Understanding the learner and their learning environments, project planning and advocating the role of the school librarian.

Flipping the Classroom: A revolutionary approach to learning presents some pros and cons | School Library Journal

Flipping the Classroom: A revolutionary approach to learning presents some pros and cons | School Library Journal | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

Back in 2007, two high school science teachers in Woodland Park, CO, decided to try a “crazy idea.” “We said, ‘What if we stopped lecturing and committed all our lectures to videos?’” says Jon Bergmann, now the lead technology facilitator at the Joseph Sears School in Kenilworth, IL. He and fellow educator Aaron Sams posted their short films—15 to 20 minutes long—for students to watch at home. (Parents could also look and say, “Oh, I see how the teacher wants it done!” says Bergmann.)

10 Reasons to Educate Elementary Students about Social Media

10 Reasons to Educate Elementary Students about Social Media | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

It is always interesting to find out that more and more of our younger students are becoming involved with the Internet and Social Media.

Due to their developmental age, most students have some kind of difficulty with self-management throughout childhood. But, this is to be expected with children. They simply lack the maturity, brain development, and personal experience to understand how to manage themselves in every situation in real life, let alone online.
