Flipping the Library: Tips from Three Pros | The Digital Shift 2013 - The Digital Shift

Flipping the Library: Tips from Three Pros | The Digital Shift 2013 - The Digital Shift | Stuff to share with my library peeps | Scoop.it
Three experts shared tech tips and tools during “Flipped School Libraries,” a rapid-fire, dynamic session during The Digital Shift: Reinventing Libraries (#TDS13) webcast.

 

 

Through the use of innovative technologies and online resources, school libraries can now be available tostudents wherever—and whenever—they need them. “Flipped” or blended learning offers students thepower of personalized instruction, through a mix of virtual and face-to-face interactions, at a student’s own pace. Embracing this concept is a must for student engagement and the future of the profession, say school librarians Joyce Valenza, Brenda Boyer, and Michelle Luhtala.

This has apparently been “one of the most requested features from customers,” according to Amazon. The comments from users are very positive and will undoubtedly get more traditional print readers using e-books.

Using the iPad would make the research, peer editting process, and revising process easier.  Most students that enjoy writing do not enjoy the revise, editting process.  The use of the iPad definately streamlines the writing process!

Mary Kate Lavin's curator insight, January 23, 7:08 AM

This article describes the writing process by using an ipad to organize, compose, and edit their written language.  Many students do not enjoy writing because of the process it takes for them to write (think of an idea, form the letters, make a complete sentence, and then edit the work)
