Why librarians (and therefore librarys) will always be better than Wikipedia.  | SchoolLibrariesTeacherLibrarians | Scoop.it
As librarians we protect our services, collections, and patrons from censorship and bias. Simply put- We do not allow it. From too much left or right wing material to too much sci-fi or mystery.

Google to revamp its products with 12-and-younger focus

Google to revamp its products with 12-and-younger focus | SchoolLibrariesTeacherLibrarians | Scoop.it
Pavni Diwanji, the vice president of engineering charged with leading the new initiative, told USA TODAY.

"We expect this to be controversial, but the simple truth is kids already have the technology in schools and at home," says the mother of two daughters, ages 8 and 13. "So the better approach is to simply see to it that the tech is used in a better way."

Google would not offer a timetable for the rollout. But executives noted this will be a full-time effort that comes on the heels of recent kid-centric efforts such as its virtual Maker Camp, Doodle 4 Google competition and Made with Code initiative, which Thursday will see the lights of White House Christmas trees illuminated based on coding programs created by kids from coast to coast.

"We want to be thoughtful about what we do, giving parents the right tools to oversee their kids' use of our products," says Diwanji, who will attend the White House ceremony. "We want kids to be safe, but ultimately it's about helping them be more than just pure consumers of tech, but creators, too."
Joyce Valenza's insight:

Looking forward to the roll-out.  Happy that creativity will be a focus.

3 Minute Teaching With Tech Tutorial - Create a Flipped Video Lesson with TedEd - YouTube

This entry in the "3 Minute Teaching With Tech Tip" video series shows how easy it is to 'flip' any YouTube video with the structured tool set provided at ed.ted.com. These lessons can be public or private, and the easy to use tools let teachers add associated content, a brief quiz, and online discussions associate with the video that is the focus point of the lesson. TedEd is totally free, and teachers get summary feedback on lesson views, quiz results, discussions, etc.

Joyce Valenza's insight:

Important reading regarding the application of use of the verbs in CCSS: 

"The greatest failure of the Common Core Standards is arguably to have overlooked these issues by being arbitrary/careless in the use of verbs in the Standards. There appears to have been no attempt to be precise and consistent in the use of the verbs in the Standards, thus making it almost impossible for users to understand the level of rigor prescribed by the standard, hence levels of rigor required in local assessments."
