Timely and useful

Jane Schmude's curator insight, March 17, 2013 6:44 PM

We all need help with how to use iPads in lessons. Universities are also adjusting to this way of learning in tutorials. If students can have access to these devices during research or reading, they will be well prepared for their future education.

Softlink: Softlink Australian Schools Survey 2012 results

Softlink: Softlink Australian Schools Survey 2012 results | Transliteracy & eLearning | Scoop.it

In April 2012, Softlink conducted the third annual Australian School Library Survey. The 2012 Softlink School Library Survey reports key findings into Australian school library budgets, staffing and literacy levels. Softlink has conducted the annual survey since 2010. Findings from these reports have been recognised and used by the Australian Government, the Australian School Library Association (ASLA) and Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA).

 

Principal findings from the 2012 Softlink Australian School Library Survey include:

 

* There is a positive relationship between well-resourced libraries and higher student literacy outcomes

* School library resourcing is inconsistent across school type (primary, secondary, P-12) and education provider (Government, Catholic, Independent)

* The majority of school libraries had no change in budgets in the past 12 monthsVery few school libraries received additional resources for implementing the National Curriculum

* Staffing levels remained unchanged for the majority of school libraries during the past 12 months

* There is a strong intention to purchase eBooks in the coming year

* Mobile technology (iPod, iPad, smart phone and tablet) use by students is widespread across all school types and education providers and is having a greater impact on the role of the school library.

 

Challenges continue to be: gaining funding, finding a balance between the physical and digital collection, collaboration with teaching staff and the recognition of Teacher Librarian’s skills and their evolving role.

 

A copy of the full report is available http://www2.softlinkint.com/assets/pdf/survey/2012%20Softlink%20school%20library%20survey%20report.pdf

"On Monday, I had the opportunity to participate in another fab edition of the TL Virtual Cafe webinar series. This month's PD offering was an "Edutech Smackdown" featuring the Queen of All Things Library: Joyce Valenza. I love these smackdown sessions because they are the ultimate crowdsourced PD. Everybody grabs a slide (or two or ten) and when their time comes, takes the mic to share something they love. They are fun, fast paced and the cream always seems to rise to the top. Delish!"

Appealing Apps for Educators: How SonicPics amplifies a student’s voice | Transliteracy & eLearning | Scoop.it

"SonicPics is a perfect example of such an app, and it’s one that should be in every elementary iPad classroom. The power of SonicPics is in its simplicity: essentially, it is an app where you can narrate a collection of photos. However, within that simple concept lie multiple transformative strategies for student content creation, assessment of student learning, and differentiation. SonicPics is one of those apps that just works, and once you use it with your students, it will become an app that you turn to again and again."

A Must Have App Evaluation Rubric for Teachers | Transliteracy & eLearning | Scoop.it

The choice of which apps to use with your students in the classroom is not an easy one. It ,in fact , calls for a lot of attention from the part of the teacher. You are responsible for your students learning and this responsibility grows riskier when learning becomes digitally based.This is particularly the case when integrating apps into your teaching.
