Teachers who just got iPads - iPad 4 Schools

Teachers who just got iPads - iPad 4 Schools | The Academic Librarian | Scoop.it

"I had the privilege of holding a Google Hangout with Holly Clark (@HollyEdTEchDiva) and Tanya Avrith(@EdTechSchools). It was a great chat, where we compared US, NZ and Canadian school systems. Afterwards I was checking out Holly’s stuff and came across her great introduction to iPads in Classrooms. I checked with Holly and she was keen I do one of my visual representations of the ideas. So here it is, my visual, albeit briefer introduction for teachers who just got iPads:"

We expect our children to develop these skills. We integrate these skills in our every day lessons so that our students can grow and expand their knowledge. We create spaces so that our students can create and collaborate, whether it is a physical space or a virtual space. We expect our students to be good digital citizens, using devices, programs, and tools responsibly. We want our students to ask questions and explore for answers. We expect our students to learn, grow, and then reflect on that learning.

Building a library for Information & Digital Literacy Skills | Jorum Team Blog | jorum.ac.uk | The Academic Librarian | Scoop.it

It was obvious from feedback received from the Jorum community that the existing classifications for Further and Higher Education, based on LearnDirect and JACS respectively, were not a good fit for Information Literacy (IL) Skills. Until now, the only suitable home for these resources has been in the Education collection, but this is both incorrect and diminishes their discoverability. In the early stages of creating the RDM collection, it became obvious that something similar was needed for these resources too.
