12 Tech Tools That Will Transform The Way You Teach! | Catlin Tucker, Honors English Teacher | Teaching in the XXI century | Scoop.it

Tech Tools valuable to anyone involved with studying, teaching, as well for librarians!

 

RT @deblund: #Teachers #librarians #parents: A handful of #tech tools to use with your #students!

 

This blog post is dedicated to all of the overworked teachers who just don’t have the time to seek out this information. I have provided brief explanations, links to and pictures of the tools mentioned by Simple K12 (and a couple of my favorites). I hope this makes it more manageable for teachers to pick and choose which tools they want to use.

 

The tools:

Collaborize Classroom

Prezi

Evernote

Glogster

etc.

Academic Librarians As Campus Hubs, by Joshua Kim | Inside Higher Ed

Academic Librarians As Campus Hubs, by Joshua Kim | Inside Higher Ed | Teaching in the XXI century | Scoop.it

Joshua Kim:  

"RT @mrlibrarydude: Librarians already know this - but good to see it advocated by a non-librarian: Academic Librarians As Campus Hubs http://t.co/lqc6cPo4..."

 

"The library, and the librarians connected to the library space, seem to have some key advantages as connectors.  These include:

A Physical Space: And not just any physical space, but in most cases the campus library is at the geographic, intellectual and emotional center of the campus and/or school. Librarians seem to think about and pay great attention to their spaces."

 

An Interdisciplinary Focus: I work with quite a number of subject librarians at my institution, and all of them are amazingly knowledgeable about the disciplines in which they partner with faculty around teaching and research. Even subject librarians, however, retain a wide range of knowledge and a fluency in the language of the contiguous disciplines.

 

A Service Orientation: Service to our students, service to our faculty, service to colleagues, service to the mission of the institution, and service to larger ideals such as privacy and the availability of information (regardless of rank or status at the institution)."

Librarians have played a crucial, leading role in advocating for Open Access worldwide.

 

As a traditional focal point for scholarly communication innovation, libraries continue to exercise their leadership by encouraging faculty members, administrators, and students to engage in Open Access Week activities.
