Kelly Coffee's curator insight, January 9, 2015 10:46 AM

Nothing hidden about these "tips & tricks" - just standard every day library functions. This is not new, most these functions have been used since Win95, the days before we see the net as we do now. Nonetheless, whatever it takes for people to finally catch up and educate themselves about easier searching techniques!

Five lessons, each is differentiated as Beginner / Intermediate / Advanced. Mapped to three sets of national standards. Excellent way to get started teaching search skills. (I know there's no room in your curriculum to do this. Perhaps that's what's wrong with your curriculum?)Seize the opportunity to help your students develop real 21st Century Skills.

I like that it includes AASL Standards.  We must start teaching technology standards in every class.

Notice the purple "curate" lines in the infographic, pointing out ways that teachers curate content for their students - in this case, via social media. This involves tracking hash tags, becoming a "news source," search-find-pin media, etc.

Flip This Library: School Libraries Need a Revolution

Flip This Library: School Libraries Need a Revolution | 21st Century Library Ideas | Scoop.it

What has to happen for school libraries to become relevant? If we want to connect with the latest generation of learners and teachers, we have to totally redesign the library from the vantage point of our users—our thinking has to do a 180-degree flip. In short, it’s time for school libraries to become a lot less like Microsoft and a lot more like Google. With this notion in mind, David Loertscher, collaborated with two colleagues, Carol Koechlin and Sandi Zwaan, Canadian educational consultants, to develop an idea called the school library learning commons.

As the school year kicks off, this page has a variety of excellent resources you can use in your library or classroom to help explain copyright. This is a crucial facet of a good digital citizenship program and these resources can be printed and used at your school.

Joyce Valenza's curator insight, August 16, 2014 4:17 PM

Curation Platforms | Comparison tables - SocialCompare

Curation Platforms | Comparison tables - SocialCompare | 21st Century Library Ideas | Scoop.it

This is a cool matrix that compares various curation platforms.  Even more interestingly the matrix was created using an online tool called SocialCompare,  what they call a collaborative comparison engine.  You can create your own matrices collaboratively (co-curating a table if you will).  Now that is new wrinkle for me. 

 

I can see this as a year long, ongoing class activity.  Students add to it as a chart that aggregates all  of the "new ideas" and tools and skills that are introduced.  Or perhaps it can be a weekly activity that is returned to at the beginning of the next week as a moment of reflection.  I can see it being student generated and curated in some way either on the chart with comments or together as a group through conversation. 

 

This is darned useful--both the chart and the tool that it rode in on.

Yes, that is what I meant thank you. So it still remains used for very current and up-to-date material, as opposed to an archive.

I'm just kind of thinking through how this would work in my case.

If you don't mind, I'd be curious to hear how it goes.
