BOBCATSSS 2013 | Bobcatsss 2013 Conference

BOBCATSSS 2013 | Bobcatsss 2013 Conference | School Library. Portugal Network | Scoop.it

1st Call for Papers BOBCATSSS 2013 ANKARA January 23-25, 2013

From Collections to Connections: Turning Libraries “Inside-Out”

 

The “21st BOBCATSSS Conference”, will take place in Ankara, Turkey, from 23-25
January 2013.

As it is known BOBCATSSS is an annual conference series that is traditionally
organized by students from European universities. At its 21st anniversary in
January 2013, BOBCATSSS is organized by students from two universities, being
Department of Information Management of Hacettepe University, Turkey and The
Royal School of Library and Information Science, Denmark.

 

From Collections to Connections: Turning Libraries “Inside-out” being the main
theme, BOBCATSSS 2013 aims to bring together students, professors and
specialists in the field of library and information science. Today, the world
of libraries and librarians is, more than ever, set for change. The focus is
shifting towards creating connections between people and developing online
resources, rather than static collections focused on the ph ysical book. Part
of information specialist’s role is to facilitate and help the users navigate
through this jungle, and in due course find our own place in this ever changing
world: How will the role of the librarians develop in the future? What will
happen with the classic libraries and librarians in the future? Will the
physical library disappear and only exist in the digital world? In the light of
these challenges, BOBCATSSS 2013 will be a meeting place between the
professionals of tomorrow, and researchers and teachers of today.

 

Conference Theme(s)

Main topics of the conference include (but are not limited to) the following:

Serving Society in a Digital Age

The world is changing faster than we know it and everybody has a say in the
matter. People are creating and sharing online in a way never experienced
before. They tweet, make Facebook updates and they want to make an impression.
How can we be sure that both new and old is preserved; what is important to keep
and what are the demands of the digital population?

 

Information Professionals as Change-Agents

Challenges demand creative thinking, entrepreneurship and innovation. One of
the digital challenges for the users is to be able to navigate through the digital
jungle of information. A part of being information professional is to help
people become e-literate. How do we meet the cha llenges in our profession and
how can we influence the agenda?

 

Designing New Library Spaces

Today it’s not enough for a library to be able to store collections. The space
itself has to be engaging and inspiring to facilitate the users need for
information, experiences and cultural inspiration. A plethora of libraries
being built today are not only new icons but are also trying to reach the above
mentioned goals in new ways. How can we the information professionals encourage
this trend?

 

Mobile Information Services

We live in a world of hand held devices, and information has to be instantly
accessible. More and more information is being digitized, and the volume alone
is staggering. One of the tasks of the information professional is to create
accessible designs, not compromising the content. Ideas can come from unlikely
sources however. Are we capable of listening outside our own ranks?

 

Developing New Competencies

Lifelong learning is a term easy to use, but hard to master. Which competencies
do we expect the users to need, and what can they expect from us? Are we, as
information specialists, sufficiently prepared to guide them? Are we able to
combine the need-to-have with the nice-to-have skills the patrons want to a
satisfying degree and how do we keep improving?

 

Submission of Papers

In addition to papers, short papers (pecha-kucha), posters and workshops on
conference topics and general papers on information management are also
welcome. Student papers and posters are very welcome. Please use the extended
format guide available on the Symposium web site to prepare your contributions
and proposals, and send them to us using the Conference Management Software
(conftool) at https://www.conftool.pro/bobcatsss2013

 

Requirements for Abstracts

An extended abstract is required. The abstract has to be in Word format (i.e. doc
or docx). There should be an author description (first name, surname,
department, degree, university, city, country, e-mail), a title, three to six
keywords. It should only contain plain text (no figures and no tables), and the
extended abstract should be between 500-700 words in Times New Roman, font size
10. Also, please include your references and your citations using APA style.
Please see detailed information on http://www.bobcatsss.net.

Awesome Visual on The Importance of Reading Aloud to Kids ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Awesome Visual on The Importance of Reading Aloud to Kids ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | School Library. Portugal Network | Scoop.it

"Below is a graphic I come across while wading through my feeds today. The visual emphasizes the importance of read-alouds  in early literacy learning. It also features a set of interesting facts on how reading aloud helps in kids' literacy development. Reading aloud to kids is not only beneficial to young learners linguistic abilities but is also connected to their social and cognitive development. And the most important of them all is that only 15 minutes of read-aloud is enough to make a difference"

Apps in Education: 14 iPad Apps for Storytelling in the Classroom | School Library. Portugal Network | Scoop.it

Storytelling continues to gain popularity as an educational activity as it stimulates a deep thinking process, it provides opportunities for reflection and it enhances and enriches the learning experience for our students. Storytelling is a very powerful way of communicating with our peers and portrays to others who we are and what our own stories are. It also provides an opportunity to connect with a group by creating a shared experience. This is vital in any community but more so in an educational setting where we are nurturing and fostering creativity.

The digital materialsfand platforms are increasing in Finland and the students have partly said there is too much technology in schools. It is an odd since they are used to technology out-of-school. Do they have a need to make a strong difference between school time and out-of-school time activities?

Five Essentials To Create Connected Students (EdSurge News) | School Library. Portugal Network | Scoop.it

"But being connected isn’t just for socializing; it’s a life skill. When untrained students get online, they treat academic writing online as if it were social media. They write sloppily and don't think of hyperlinking. If they do, it is often a long pasted link instead of a contextual link. In this connected world, there are invisibly disconnected kids, disconnected from the knowledge they need to be successful."

"Technology has radically revolutionized the human science and provided us with profound insights that were not knowable to us before. It has also cracked the dark secrets of some key scientific concepts that mystified the human mind since the dawn of time. The physiology of the body and body anatomy are some of these key areas that have benefited a great deal from the advancement of technology. Consequently, the teaching of these concepts have become way easier and more attainable. In this regard, developers now have designed so many apps that examine the human body in 3D."

"As academic standards shift, technology evolves, and student habits change, schools are being forced to consider new ways of framing curriculum and engaging students in the classroom, and project-based learning is among the most successful and powerful of these possibilities.

 

As both a planning and a learning tool, project-based learning challenges teachers to make new decisions about how they plan student learning experiences, while simultaneously empowering students to take a more active role in the learning process."
