12 Principles Of Mobile Learning

12 Principles Of Mobile Learning | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it

"
Mobile Learning is about self-actuated personalization.

As learning practices and technology tools change, mobile learning itself will continue to evolve. For 2013, the focus is on a variety of challenges, from how learners access content to how the idea of a “curriculum” is defined."

The Role of the Teacher Librarian (Library Media Specialist) BACIRC

The Role of the Teacher Librarian (Library Media Specialist) BACIRC | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it

It has been interesting to hear the reactions from many who do not know what a Teacher Librarian does in the day-to-day life of the school library. A relative of mine jokingly said to my daughter: “So what did she do to win this award… invent a new Dewey Decimal System or a new way of filing?” … I want to thank my two Cert III qualified Library Assistants who make it possible for me to do much less of the “book” work behind the scenes (shelving, cataloguing, covering) and a lot more of the specialized teaching role that is that of Teacher Librarian!

With students accessing different kinds of material and the same material in different ways, the OPAC and vertical file may not be the best way to lead your students to the best content.  This article shows differing ways of attacking the problem.

 

Leigh Zika's curator insight, June 12, 2015 9:34 PM

Good examples of content curation tools for school librarians and teachers/students.

Brooke Roberson Buxton's curator insight, April 22, 12:12 PM

Easy article that introduces several key curation tools for use in the school library.

6 Things To Teach Students About Social Media - Edudemic | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it

Today’s society is becoming more and more socially focused with each passing day. Social media is not simply a passing trend; it is here to stay. Now more than ever, students need to understand the basics of social media and how it can affect their future both negatively and positively. A strong or weak social media presence now affects both college admissions and the workforce.

If you want to create engaging eLearning courses you should start considering one main factor: relevance. This means creating compelling courses that speak directly to your audience.

 

In eLearning, creating relevant and meaningful experiences for your target audience has always been the best way to capture learners. On the contrary, if your learners have no interest in your course, the information you have sent will convey very little value and success...

iPads set to take over from books in school libraries, principal says

iPads set to take over from books in school libraries, principal says | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it

More than 170 primary and high school students debated the topic of technology versus books last week.

 

Gladstone Primary principal Matt Delany said the teaching tools would shift in favour of technology over the next decade. "I think that over the next five to ten years we will see a change in the way that schools operate in terms of using technology over books, especially as we see new teachers come out of university who are used to using iPads and new technologies," Mr Delany said.

 

"I don't think that books will disappear entirely - there is a place for both and it's about schools finding a happy compromise.

 

"Libraries are still fundamental to schools and books can still give students something that they don't get from an iPad."

Digital Citizenship, by Andrew Churches

Digital Citizenship, by Andrew Churches | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it

"Global Digital Citizenship is a critical element of any teaching program at any level. Our students are connected. Irrespective of the age of the student, they are wired. We are seeing devices reducing in cost, increasing in availability, and entering most classrooms and almost every school."

 

[...]

"...how do we teach Global Digital Citizenship, a fluency that is critical at all levels of education?

1. Clarity and rationale—Whether we are giving the students guidelines (my personal preference) or sets of rules, there must be clarity and a transparent rationale behind the statements we make."

2. Understanding and Purpose—This is the communication aspect with the students and the community. You have to develop and instill in the students an understanding of WHY we are making these recommendations and setting these expectations.

3. Monitoring and consequences—As critical as rationale and purpose, monitoring and consequences should be transparent, timely, and appropriate.

4. Individual and community involvement—In developing and implementing our digital citizenship guidelines and processes we sought, valued, and used feedback from staff, students, and the community."
