The Organized Librarian: An Interview with Daniel J. Levitin

The Organized Librarian: An Interview with Daniel J. Levitin | thriving in our digital world | Scoop.it
Daniel J. Levitin, author of The Organized Mind: Thinking Straight in the Age of Information Overload (Aug., Dutton) and the James McGill Professor of Psychology and Music at McGill University, Montreal, where he also holds appointments in the Program in Behavioural Neuroscience, The School of Computer Science, and the Faculty of Education, will be one of the keynote speakers at Library Journal’s virtual event, The Digital Shift: Libraries @ the Center, which will be held on October 1. In preparation for the conference, Levitin shares with LJ his thoughts on how his work can help librarians themselves, and their patrons, find the needle they need in today’s ever-growing information haystack.
Karen Armstrong's insight:

Dr. Levitin is a great professor and an interesting guy. In this article he talks about what libraries and librarians can do to help people navigate the world of information in both physical and digital environments

As I read through the list, I realized this list could be titled, "What we do in the library every day."  I especially love the last category, which address the nuances of digital citizenship and just plain common sense!

8 Technologies That Will Shape Future Classrooms | thriving in our digital world | Scoop.it

What does the future of learning hold? What will classrooms of the future be like? Emerging technologies such as cloud computing, augmented reality (AR) and 3D printing are paving the way for the future of education in ways we may have yet to see. At the very least though, we can extrapolate from what these promising technologies and predict how schools will adopt them in time to come.
