Here’s the latest installment in my series on The Best Ways To Create Online Content Easily & Quickly. As you may remember, in order to make it on this list, the web tool has to:

* be easily accessible to English Language Learners and/or non-tech savvy computer users.

* allow people to create engaging content within minutes.

* host the user’s creation on the site itself indefinitely, and allow a direct link to be able to be posted on a student or teacher’s website/blog to it (or let it be embedded).

* provide some language-learning opportunity (for example, students can write about their creations).

* not require any registration.

Libraries have the potential to significantly enhance the development of life-long learners through excellent provision of expertise, resources and spaces.  There are some great NZ examples referred to in this post.

pru's curator insight, June 7, 2013 9:06 PM

There are challenges for school libraries in balancing these spaces, particularly collection space. Once the overriding priority, have we gone too far in rationalising physical collection space and thus risked devaluing what is part of a library's unique value? Of course making virtual collections visible in our space is also important.
