Free Technology for Teachers: By Request - Good Alternatives to Google Image Search | School Libraries Leading Information Literacy | Scoop.it

"This morning I received an email from a reader that has been frustrated by the results her students are getting when they search on Google Images. Rather than relying on the filters on Google Images to generate good results for students, give one of these other sources of images a try."

How Much Data Is Generated On Twitter, Instagram, Vine, Tinder & WhatsApp Every Minute? | AllTwitter | School Libraries Leading Information Literacy | Scoop.it

Here’s the thing: the internet never sleeps.

 

Which means data never sleeps, and the internet sure likes to use up a lot of it. How much? In any given minute, 277,000 tweets are published on Twitter, 216,000 photos are sent to Instagram and 8,333 videos are shared on Vine.

 

And we’re just getting started. Over that same 60 second period, 347,222 photos are sent on WhatsApp, 416,667 swipes are made on Tinder and 3,472 images are pinned on Pinterest.

 

And if you think that’s impressive, Google receives 4 millions search queries, Facebook users share 2.46 million pieces of content and 204 million email messages are sent each and every minute of the day.

 

This visual from DOMO looks at how much data is generated every minute across the net....

Joyce Valenza's curator insight, May 12, 8:36 PM

"Literacy implies a fuller understanding and a rounder knowledge. A literate person is aware of multiple information sources, the pros and cons of media forms, and the value and credibility of information. A literate person can process diverse data sources, and suggest macro relevance and micro application of seemingly disparate ideas."

Cynthia Alvarado's curator insight, May 13, 3:39 PM

Now, more than ever, we need local evidence from every TL practitioner regarding their contribution to teacher practice and student learning. ALA President Barbara Stripling makes presents a strong argument for the existence of school libraries, given the trickle effect their demise will have on public libraries, academic libraries, and the preparedness of young people to effectively contribute to society as creative, critical, ethical and informed citizens.

Wonderful Visual Featuring The Three Versions of Bloom's Taxonomy ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Wonderful Visual Featuring The Three Versions of Bloom's Taxonomy ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | School Libraries Leading Information Literacy | Scoop.it

"I have been sharing several visuals on Bloom's Taxonomy over the last couple of years but I  never came across a graphic that captures the essence of the three versions of Bloom's taxonomy as the one below. Actually, Bloom's taxonomy comes only into two versions, the original which was created by a  committee of educators chaired by  Benjamin Bloom  sometime in the 1950s of last century. During the 1990s another group of educators and cognitive psychologists led by Lorin Anderson ( a former student of Bloom) updated the original version to make it convenient with the learning needs of the 21st century."
