Teacher-librarians change with the times - students need to be more info-savvy

Teacher-librarians change with the times - students need to be more info-savvy | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

Today, in addition to introducing children to books and curating collections in school libraries, teacher-librarians are doing the same with websites and online information.

They often research and vet appropriate websites ahead of time to provide to teachers when they're covering a particular subject, just as they do with books.

But they also teach students to do better Internet searches, refine their search terms, and become more independent.

Part of the challenge is a trend teachers and librarians call "satisficing," a combination of satisfying and sufficient or suffice, said Finlay. In other words, students' approach is often "get what I need for an assignment and hand it in."

Teacher-librarians aim to get students to look deeper into their subjects.

Flipping the Classroom: A revolutionary approach to learning presents some pros and cons | School Library Journal | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

Back in 2007, two high school science teachers in Woodland Park, CO, decided to try a “crazy idea.” “We said, ‘What if we stopped lecturing and committed all our lectures to videos?’” says Jon Bergmann, now the lead technology facilitator at the Joseph Sears School in Kenilworth, IL. He and fellow educator Aaron Sams posted their short films—15 to 20 minutes long—for students to watch at home. (Parents could also look and say, “Oh, I see how the teacher wants it done!” says Bergmann.)

Flipping a classroom does have its positives but it will depend on student access and their commitment to watching video at home...just the same as in the past, will they do their written homework?

Perry's Vision For University Of Texas Criticized : NPR

Perry's Vision For University Of Texas Criticized  : NPR | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it
There's a debate across the country over how well universities are preparing graduates for the real world, and whether colleges should operate more like businesses. That debate is particularly heated in Texas, where Gov.
R.Conrath, Ed.D.'s insight:

I heard this article by NPR, and I think Governor Perry's perspective is disturbing and lacking in an understanding of how a university works. While there are aspects of business that are involved in higher education, many areas are not recordable on an accountant's ledger. The term Perry can't understand, nor S.C.'s former Governor Sanford, is synergy. Higher learning educates people; it doesn't make junk bonds or cheaply made car parts. (I mention former Governor Sanford because while he was in office he tried similar tactics that involved closing smaller state supported colleges. What he didn’t know or comprehend was that the smaller colleges are what kept USC running in the black, not the other way around. )

I will definitely have some feedback after reviewing these tools to create online assessments.

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

Infographics are interesting–a mash of (hopefully) easily-consumed visuals (so, symbols, shapes, and images) and added relevant character-based data (so, numbers, words, and brief sentences).

The learning application for them is clear, with many academic standards–including the Common Core standards–requiring teachers to use a variety of media forms, charts, and other data for both information reading as well as general fluency...
