The New School Library

The New School Library | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it

Without question, the Internet has changed the way we think and learn, and will continue to do so as our technology evolves. In particular, the ability to access enormous amounts of information at any time from almost any place is forcing schools to redefine the idea of a classroom and the way we approach teaching. It is also reshaping the notion of school library services — what libraries look like and how they and librarians best serve schools.

Digital Storytelling Evaluation Rubrics for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it

Are you integrating digital storytelling in your course with your students ? Are you looking for a carefully crafted rubric to help you guide your digital storytelling activities ? Well you don't have to go far, the answers are right below these couple of lines. This is probably the first time I am publishing a rubric on evaluating digital storytelling. I have previously featured several rubrics that are particularly technology focused and all are geared towards helping teachers better integrate technology into their teaching.

I can hear teachers sighing. Not everyone is going to have an award-winning makerspace. Maybe the best you can do right now is Legos and that's fine. I think we forget there are no rules and that we start with what we can and how we can.

The Best Ways to Be Sure You're Legally Using Online Photos | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it
For generations, a picture was worth a thousand words. Now, in the social network age, a picture is worth a few hundred likes, some +1's, a handful of retweets, stumbles, tumbles, pins, and shares of all sorts. Oh, and those original thousand words.

Including an interesting, high-resolution photo is a great way to get your online content noticed. But don’t “steal" the image. Attribution isn’t always enough. And “fair use” might not mean what you think it does.
