Preparing our students for Web 3.0 learning

How do we prepare out students for Web 3.0 learning? This slide show by Judy O'Connell provides us an opportunity to look back in time, from what we might refer to as Web 0 and the journey to where we are today and where we are heading. Many define Web 2.0 as the social web. Web 3.0 will be defined by data, and the ability to link data in new ways. Many excellent resources are embedded within this slide show, so find some time to pull up your chair and learn more about what the future may hold.

lyn_hay's curator insight, April 17, 2:28 AM

Now, more than ever, we need local evidence from every TL practitioner regarding their contribution to teacher practice and student learning. ALA President Barbara Stripling makes presents a strong argument for the existence of school libraries, given the trickle effect their demise will have on public libraries, academic libraries, and the preparedness of young people to effectively contribute to society as creative, critical, ethical and informed citizens.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 27, 7:00 PM

If you teach history/social studies this post is right up your alley. The website MadeFromHistory has put together 30 infographics that look at 30 key events in the last 100 years, and they do acknowledge that the have "left out quite a few events" due to space limitations. You can also find sections that focus on World War I, World War II, and Civil Rights as well as a Referenced Blog, which shares a wide variety of topics.

For many students, using visuals helps them to recall information more readily. If you teach history from the past 100 years it is worth checking out this website.

David Baker's curator insight, July 29, 12:04 PM
Visuals that include original source materials make classroom experiences much more relevant to students. It allows the story of the events to be made more real whether it is the experiences of WWI, WW II, or Civil Rights.
Anne-Maree Johnson's curator insight, July 29, 6:44 PM

 valuable tool for teaching of history. A series of infographics, timelines and a referenced blog which give valuable visual insight into key events from the last century.

School Libraries: Collaborating for College Readiness | At Your Library

School Libraries: Collaborating for College Readiness | At Your Library | What is a teacher librarian? | Scoop.it
The school librarian is the hub of the learning wheel. This is demonstrated by high school librarians like Brenda Boyer, at Kutztown (Pa.) Area High School, as they collaborate with teachers and students to make sure those students are college ready. The effectiveness of the collaboration between Boyer and her teacher colleagues, Allison Kocis-Westgate and Josh Chambers, led to their receiving the Collaborative School Library Award, given by the American Association of School Librarians (AASL), a division of the American Library Association (ALA).
