"Creating books on the iPad doesn’t seem like the first thing you might do with one of the popular little tablets, but it’s really quite capable of doing so provided you’re not trying to write the next great novel."

Convinced of the need to be a conent curator in my school - looking for the best way to start this, how to implement a manageable plan and ways to increase my content curation competency.

 

Lucy Wyatt's curator insight, October 7, 2013 12:44 PM

With students accessing different kinds of material and the same material in different ways, the OPAC and vertical file may not be the best way to lead your students to the best content.  This article shows differing ways of attacking the problem.

The True Adventures of a High School Librarian: Twittter: It's All About Relationships

The True Adventures of a High School Librarian: Twittter: It's All About Relationships | School Media Librarianship | Scoop.it

"Just as important as relationship building inside the four walls of your classroom is the building of professional relationships outside of your school, outside of your school district, and beyond your state, to the global community we are preparing students to enter.  One of the best ways to build these relationships is through Twitter.  
As a self proclaimed Twitaholic or Twivangelist, I am constantly emphasizing the importance of building a Professional Learning Network (PLN) through Twitter.  Simply setting up a Twitter account isn't enough.  You must make a concerted effort to find others who inspire, uplift and encourage and be willing to do the same in return."

More and more libraries are removing bookshelves to make way for infrastructure and interior design elements (e.g. lounge areas, couches, meeting rooms, whiteboards, projectors, video consoles, cafés and food bars) aiming to facilitate social learning, open sharing and collaboration among their users. Is this the future of libraries?

Librarians asked to be tech-savvy - The New Indian Express

Librarians asked to be tech-savvy - The New Indian Express | School Media Librarianship | Scoop.it

By Express News Service 

"In the age of information technology, where data is available at the fingertips of those who seek it, librarians should be tech-savvy.

The focus of the national seminar held by the Kerala Library Association (KLA) here on Friday was on information technology interfaces in libraries and information centres.

Rather than seeing technology as a threat, it must be adopted and adapted into a supporting system for information services, the speakers at the seminar said. Borrowing from Web 2.0, they have to go to Library 2.0; library services are user-centred, collaborative and participatory in nature.

“An integrated application of Web 2.0 facilities such as social networking sites, RSS, weblogs etc, leads to Knowledge Management 2.0 (KM 2.0),” said A Neelameghan, former head of the Documentation Research and Training Centre (DRTC), Bangalore, who was delivering the keynote address on ‘Knowledge Management 2.0 in the Inclusive Knowledge Society Environment’."
