Flip This Library: School Libraries Need a Revolution

Flip This Library: School Libraries Need a Revolution | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it

What has to happen for school libraries to become relevant? If we want to connect with the latest generation of learners and teachers, we have to totally redesign the library from the vantage point of our users—our thinking has to do a 180-degree flip. In short, it’s time for school libraries to become a lot less like Microsoft and a lot more like Google. With this notion in mind, David Loertscher, collaborated with two colleagues, Carol Koechlin and Sandi Zwaan, Canadian educational consultants, to develop an idea called the school library learning commons.

An Easy Way to Build Branched Scenarios for E-Learning » The Rapid eLearning Blog | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it

The ultimate goal is transitioning from a push model where we just provide information and move to a more interactive model where the learner makes the same types of decisions she’d make in a real-world environment. These decision-making activities are used to reinforce what you want her to practice and learn so that your courses have real-world impact.

Create Interactive Stories With New Four Dimensional Storytelling Tool: Meograph

Create Interactive Stories With New Four Dimensional Storytelling Tool: Meograph | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it

From official website:

"Meograph helps easily create, watch, and share interactive stories. Our first product combines maps, timeline, links, and multimedia to tell stories in context of where and when.

 

Viewers get a new form of media that they can watch in two minutes or explore for an hour. Sharing is easy: the two most viral types of media are videos and infographics ... Meograph is both."

 

 

From review by Mashable:

"Founder Misha Leybovich invisions Meograph to be a great product for journalists, educators and people looking to share travel stories.

 

The tool uses Google Earth and a timeline interface to show where and when events in a story unfolded.

 

You can now create your own 4D story, by adding events, links, photos and video. You can then embed your Meograph creation on any site or social network.

 

As of launch, you can only create Meograph stories using Google Chrome, though you can view a finished product in any browser..."

The 100 Best Twitter Tools For Teachers (2012 Edition) | Edudemic | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it

In 2009, we shared our favorite tools for teachers on Twitter, with 100 resources for managing feeds, finding followers, and tackling classroom groups on the social media site. Since then, many tools have been revamped, replaced, or simply aren’t available anymore. Clearly, an update is in order, so we’re proud to present a new list for 2012, featuring the very best tools available to Twittering teachers today.
