Curation Tools for Students and Teachers: My Favorites So Far by Joyce Valenza

Curation Tools for Students and Teachers: My Favorites So Far by Joyce Valenza | School Libraries | Scoop.it

I hope to introduce a variety of curating tools to classes and individual students this year. While this is an exciting way for learners to discover how to manage their information worlds, not everyone actually needs or wants to curate every single time they begin research.

 

Students and teachers can exploit the curation efforts already out there.

 

In fact, the new curation tools present an exciting new genre of search tool, a tool for scanning the real-time environment, as well as opportunities for evaluating quality and relevance in emerging information landscapes.

 

Because a couple of my seniors selected autism as an area of interest for their senior project, I’ll use this topic as a sample search in five of my favorite new search tools.

New Tricks for Searching for Academics« NeverEndingSearch

New Tricks for Searching for Academics« NeverEndingSearch | School Libraries | Scoop.it

Joyce Valenza provides a look at three "relatively new options" in searching that may be new to you. She looks at Google Scholar which has a "Making New Connections" component; Microsoft's Academic Search, which "offers the added value of allowing searchers to select one or more domains or disciplines and to filter by subdomain, publication, author, source type, organization, or keyword." In addition they also have new "data visualization features that offer searchers and scholars a view of the scholarly patters and relationships, highlighting critical links that help define scientific research."; and Mendeley, " a tool for the individual researcher and the opportunity to participate in research communities to share intelligence within a field of study."
For more information on all three tools check out the article.

10 Techy Icebreakers for The 21st Century Teacher

10 Techy Icebreakers for The 21st Century Teacher | School Libraries | Scoop.it

by Med Kharbach

 

"Icebreakers are " discussion questions or activities used to help participants relax and ease into a group meeting or learning situation" (Dover, 2004). Icebreakers are very important in the learning-teaching process that takes place within the classroom. They can help in creating and maintaining a healthy and successful learning environment for students and are also the best warm-ups to get students engaged in a learning task."

This is a great resource for the beginning of school and the activities can also be used to pre-assess the student skills.
