Marni Hanna has a disclaimer for visitors to the Pacific Crest Middle School library: It’s not done. “A lot of people walk in and say there’s not that many books,” said Hanna, the school’s media manager. The shelves are about half full — the school opened this year, and Hanna is still trying to gauge what sort of books teachers and students are most interested in. But there are other things missing: computers, since all

Preparing our students for Web 3.0 learning

How do we prepare out students for Web 3.0 learning? This slide show by Judy O'Connell provides us an opportunity to look back in time, from what we might refer to as Web 0 and the journey to where we are today and where we are heading. Many define Web 2.0 as the social web. Web 3.0 will be defined by data, and the ability to link data in new ways. Many excellent resources are embedded within this slide show, so find some time to pull up your chair and learn more about what the future may hold.

In the future, fewer librarians are expected to be needed as the public becomes more adept at using electronic resources, but at the same time, the rise in electronic information is expected to boost the demand for librarians who know how to do research..

Web tools to support inquiry-based learning

Inquiry-based learning is an active learning process, based on identifying relevant questions to research so that the student can develop knowledge about or create solutions to issues and problems.

Web tools allow students to engage in collaborative and interactive learning. All phases of inquiry learning can be adequately addressed through a wide variety of web-based tools and applications.

Learn About URL Structure in Under 3 Minutes | Teacher Librarians Rule | Scoop.it

Understanding the structure of a URL helps students understand how information is stored and accessed online—it is one of the basic skills at the foundation of information and digital literacy. Teaching the ins and outs of servers and subdomains can be challenging, which is why we’ve been hard at work creating simple and engaging video tutorials to help you teach these imperative skills to students.
