Given the unprecedented quantity of information learners are exposed to, the librarian’s role is more important than ever. Librarians help all students gain access to, evaluate, ethically use, create, share, and synthesize information.

Flipped classroom <>flipped school library

Flipped classroom <>flipped school library | Walnut Media Literacy | Scoop.it

Flipping the classroom changes the place in which content is delivered. If the teacher assigns lecture-type, frontal instruction–in the form of video, simulations, slidecasts, readings, podcasts–as homework, then class time can be used interactively. The class becomes conversation space, creation space, space where teachers actively facilitate learning.

Flipping frees face-to-face classroom time for interactive and applied learning, activities that inspire critical thinking, exploration, inquiry, discussion, collaboration, problem solving.  So, the classroom and the library become more learner-centered.

Ken's Key Takeway:

This is an interesting framework.  LIke most frameworks, I don't think it is enough, but this is a good framework to memorize and to ask yourself before posting or planning production.  Which of these does this specific content focus on?

 

Attractive

Emotional

Relavent

Convenient

Annotexting: #Annotating text is one way students can cite textual evidence, infer + deepen meaning as they read

Annotexting:  #Annotating text is one way students can cite textual evidence, infer + deepen meaning as they read | Walnut Media Literacy | Scoop.it

The following is a collaborative guest post by Michael Fisher and Jeanne Tribuzzi , of the Curriculum 21 Faculty.

http://www.curriculum21.com/

 

The companion LIVEBINDER OF INTERACTIVE TOOLS IS HERE.

http://www.livebinders.com/play/play_or_edit?id=322571

...

Expecting students to read deeply and draw meaningful conclusions is at the heart of the Common Core ELA standards. Students are asked to read closely, cite evidence, and make evidence based inferences when they read. They are expected to deepen their learning by valuing textual evidence and reading critically. Annotating text is one way students can cite textual evidence, infer and deepen meaning as they read..

...

Annotations make thinking visible for teachers and students. We can use the words and features of a text to better comprehend it, ask questions, and note our thoughts while reading. One goal of comprehension is that students will be proficient annotators of texts to understand more deeply by interacting and making thinking transparent while they read.

...

There are many reasons to ask students to annotate text: for basic comprehension, to show evidence of conceptual understanding, to show what is implied, to identify the claims in an argument, to read like a writer and identify characteristics of genre, to notice the nuance of language…and many other reasons. Giving guidance as to what we want students to annotate for will be beneficial for the reader. Otherwise, they will annotate everything that comes to mind, and the work may not be helpful to the reader or the teacher.

...

in addition to collecting evidence with web tools, there are also digital APPS that we’ve come across that would work for Annotexting too. (These are represented in the LiveBinder as well.) Some are notetaking apps that let you collect evidence and annotations with a digital device and some let you edit and annotate PDF files and documents. There are resources in the binder for both iTunes and Android Market Apps.

...

Teacher/Librarian Collaboration – From a Teacher's Perspective

The library is one of most the perfect places for “beyond the classroom learning.” It is the place where students are, or should be encouraged to explore other worlds, to develop their imagination, to think about the impossible. This process of inquiry is what makes learning a beautiful thing and this crucial step, “the jewel,” is something commonly missed when teachers plan a new unit of work. Sometimes we fail to go back to the basics. We replace simple words such as “finding out” and “enjoyment” with “success” and “assessment.” Often teachers can forget about the process and cast their eyes only to the outcome.

How Does Your Boss See You?: Proof That Principals Value Librarians

How Does Your Boss See You?: Proof That Principals Value Librarians | Walnut Media Literacy | Scoop.it

Principals value their librarians. They also want them to be more visible leaders.

Those are just two of the interesting findings from a recent survey of 102 media specialists and 67 principals. In fact, 90 percent of the administrators that we surveyed think we have a positive impact in schools—and a large number also feel that our jobs are important.

Os diretores de escolas nos EUA valorizam os seus bibliotecários. 90% dos administradores consideram que o trabalho desenvolvido pelos bibliotecários é importante e tem um impacto positivo nas escolas. Não obstante, os diretores também querem que os bibliotecários se tornem líderes mais visíveis. Estas são apenas duas das conclusões interessantes de uma pesquisa recente.
