School Libraries Work!

School Libraries Work! | School Library Resources | Scoop.it

School Libraries Work! seeks to empower librarians, classroom teachers, school and district leaders, policy makers, parents and communities by arming them with the most powerful research-based frameworks, recommendations, and support for school library programs.

 

The 2016 compendium updates and builds upon the 2008 edition, reinforcing the most relevant themes from that report while highlighting recent research at both the national and state levels. All told, the research included in this compendium continues to show that school libraries and school librarians are a powerful force in the lives of America's children.

A global look at pedagogies for 21st century skills

A global look at pedagogies for 21st century skills | School Library Resources | Scoop.it

Disconnects between policy mandates/supports and desired practice were found in most of the schools and all of the systems in our sample. For example, teachers were often being asked to innovate while being incented and judged solely by measures of the facts that students had acquired through traditional means, or given ICT to use without related curricular materials and models for ways to use it powerfully and effectively in subject matter learning. It was rare that teachers experienced standards, curriculum, professional development, assessments, and incentives that all aligned to support the development of students’ 21st century skills.

" If you don't manage your online reputation someone else  might do it for you, and you may not like the results." 

Good Point! This article has really made me think about what my online reputation is and looks like. Here is a summary of the 5 easy steps to getting known on the internet and keeping a good reputation while doing so:

1. Asses your current reputation - search for yourself online

2. Identify the changes needed - anything negative needs to be deleted or pushed down in the search results

3. Determine your best areans - publish more content on the places you are most popular,  you will hsve the most influence there.

4. Decide what type of content and topics you will publish about to promote the reputation you want to builld.

5. Start building - Publish and promote valuable content. Track your reputation by measuring and mointoring the success of your publishing and modify and make changes as necessary
