Amidst a Mobile Revolution in Schools, Will Old Teaching Tactics Work?

Amidst a Mobile Revolution in Schools, Will Old Teaching Tactics Work? | The Browse | Scoop.it

Just a few years ago, the idea of using a mobile phone as a legitimate learning tool in school seemed far-fetched, if not downright blasphemous. Kids were either prohibited from bringing their phones to school, or at the very least told to shut it off during school hours.

Is Learning Facts a Trivial Pursuit?

Is Learning Facts a Trivial Pursuit? | The Browse | Scoop.it

Dear Savvy Searcher,

You wrote recently about the importance of teaching search skills. What do you make of the whole idea that kids no longer need to learn facts because they can find answers so easily online? Do you think that is true?

 

Concerned Teacher

 

When I was growing up, we used to say that you don’t need to know everything, just know how to find it. I firmly believe the same today, but I now appreciate that an integral part of search literacy is knowing enough background information to make informed decisions about what sources to believe. The ability to evaluate sources is one of the linchpin skills students need for navigating research both online and off.

What do students want from mobile devices?

 

Based on statistics provided by PEW research, Nielsen, the National School Board Association and others, ASCD’s infographic explores the connections between today’s students, mobile learning and learning methods.

 

The majority of Western schools attempt to ban the use of mobile devices; whereas a smaller number permit students to carry but not use the items. For many, suppressing such items becomes a losing battle — as students continue to bring them, as well as parents preferring the option of being able to contact their children.

CHICAGO — Librarians are helping to spread the joy and love of reading by taking part in World Book Night on April 23.

 

Held in the United States, as well as the U.K. and Ireland, the initiative aims at promoting the value of reading, printed books, bookstores and libraries to everyone year round.

 

World Book Night seeks out reluctant adult readers wherever they are, in towns and cities and in such public settings as nursing homes, food pantries, low income schools and mass transit centers, according to organizers.

 

Tens of thousands of volunteers will hand out copies of 30 specially chosen and printed World Book Night editions in their communities. The volunteers will visit safe, well-populated public areas or indoor settings.

Cheapskates love libraries (it's mutual) - Boing Boing

Cheapskates love libraries (it's mutual) - Boing Boing | The Browse | Scoop.it

Cory Doctorow telling it like it.

 

"Libraries aren't just the mark of a civilized society -- assembling, curating and disseminating knowledge to all comers! -- they're also a cheapskate's best friend. Anyone who's interested in saving money probably already knows about the free Internet access, daily newspapers, DVD and audiobook borrowing, and book lending (duh). But local libraries go beyond that -- many host community meetings, book readings for kids, author signings, and workshops, as well as providing free or low-cost meeting spaces."

Teachers and Students As Media Producers | The Browse | Scoop.it

Need a quick, fun dose of inspiration? Check out this video, The Infinite Thinking Machine, a new (well, technically, it’s re-launched) Internet TV show for educators.

 

This eight-minute episode focuses on teachers and students as media producers, creating photos, videos, animation, and multi-media projects as storytelling devices. Produced by CUE, the host is Ramsey Musallam, and executive producers are Mike Lawrence and Chris Fitzgerald Walsh. It’s well worth the time.
