Why can’t Johnny blog? | Teacher Librarians Rule | Scoop.it
Guy is among a growing faction of Ontario parents, teachers, and education specialists who believe kids need more technology in the classroom, from blogs to Facebook, mobile devices and beyond. Without it, they argue, children’s education will become woefully irrelevant in today’s fast-changing world—think of it as 21st century illiteracy..

Five Handy Things You Can Do with Google's New Knowledge Graph Search

Five Handy Things You Can Do with Google's New Knowledge Graph Search | Teacher Librarians Rule | Scoop.it

By Melanie Pinola

 

"Earlier this week, Google introduced Knowledge Graph, the company's new search technology that understands "things not strings" and adds rich and relevant details about your query in the sidebar of your search results. Here are five great things you can now do with a quick Google search."

 

"I took the new version of Google Search for a spin to find out just what it can do, and have to say it's pretty useful. To recap, Google now connects your search query with its knowledgebase, which includes Wikipedia and the CIA World Factbook. If you search for a person, place, or thing within that 500+ million object database, Google adds the related key facts alongside the regular search results. (The tech is still rolling out, but you should see it when you're logged into Google sometime in the next few days, if you don't already.)

Flying High: The Improbable True Tale of Debut Novelist John Corey Whaley 

Flying High: The Improbable True Tale of Debut Novelist John Corey  Whaley  | Teacher Librarians Rule | Scoop.it

It was a surprisingly warm day in Dallas as John Corey Whaley stood at the American Library Association’s (ALA) January midwinter meeting still “in complete shock,” looking like a guy who’d just hit the daily double. Who could blame him? Within the last 24 hours, the relatively unknown writer found out that his novel, 'Where Things Come Back', had scooped up ALA’s William C. Morris Award, an honor given to a first-time YA author.

What do you think about independent reading?

What do you think about independent reading? | Teacher Librarians Rule | Scoop.it

A lot of people—teachers included—like the idea of independent reading, or as it is sometimes called, sustained silent reading (SSR).  But when they see it in practice— well, it just doesn’t look like learning is supposed to look. Here’s the secret not everyone knows: independent reading is a key component of good teaching. Sure, the classroom may seem quiet, the students relaxed, but important work is going on inside the children’s heads. They are learning how to become good readers.
