The Looking Glass : New Perspectives on Children's Literature | Citing Resources in MLA Format | Scoop.it

"Edited by a team of literature scholars from across the United States, The Looking Glass: New Perspectives on Children's Literature is an online journal that includes analysis of both classic and contemporary children's and youth literature. Founded in 1997, the journal releases a new issue once or twice a year and is aimed at "academics, librarians, teachers, parents and anyone else fascinated by the world of children's literature." The journal is divided up into several sections and includes peer-reviewed academic papers alongside "more general commentary" and "light and quirky pieces." On this website, visitors may read the current issue of The Looking Glass and all previously published issues in HTML format. In the Vol 19, No 1 (2016) issue, readers will find an analysis of hunger in youth novels by Sarah Hardstaff; a consideration of literacy education by Kevin K. Thomas and April M. Burke, both of Central Michigan University; and a consideration of three recently published books about the Harry Potter series.The Looking Glass: New Perspectives on Children's Books is an electronic journal about children's literature."

How do you keep up? Part 1: slideshare & authorSTREAM — @joycevalenza NeverEndingSearch

How do you keep up? Part 1: slideshare & authorSTREAM — @joycevalenza NeverEndingSearch | Citing Resources in MLA Format | Scoop.it

"Whenever I share at a conference, I get asked a couple of questions:  “How do you learn about all this stuff?”  “How do you keep up?”


Most of us did not learn strategies for the type of keeping up we now need to do when we were in library school.

 

New tools for current awareness, curation and network building emerge daily.  But not all of them have seriouslegs.

 

For me, it’s about workflow and the development of a toolkit.

In the next few posts I’ll share a few of my personal learning strategies, using tools that fall in a few basic categories."

Content Curation Tool: eduClipper Launches Its "Pinterest For Education"

Content Curation Tool: eduClipper Launches Its "Pinterest For Education" | Citing Resources in MLA Format | Scoop.it

Excerpted from review article on TechCrunch:
"This week the teacher-turned-entrepreneur Adam Below officially launched eduClipper, a platform that allows teachers and students to explore, share and contribute to a library of educational content. In both function and design, it’s essentially a Pinterest for education, with one notable difference: Because eduClipper is built exclusively for teachers and students, unlike Pinterest, you probably won’t find it blocked by your local school.

Educators and students can explore thousands of pieces of educational content, find lesson plans, resources and videos and search for the most popular content by subject or interest.

With eduClipper, users can share individual eduClips (or pieces of content) or eduClipboards (collections of content) with colleagues or students while cross-posting or embedding that content on other social platforms or sending them through email.

EduClips are created through the site’s bookmarklet (a Chrome extension), so once it’s installed in their browsers, teachers and students can grab any content they find on the web, Google Drive, Google Apps and more, and add them to their collection, i.e. their eduClipboards. Once grabbed, the site automatically grabs the source link, too, so that it’s easy to get back to the original content and easy to give proper citation.

Teachers and students can share these clipboards so that their classmates and colleagues can collaborate on assignments or in-class activities, create groups to share these resources with and align the content that’s clipped and shared to Common Core Standards. That’s the big advantage of eduClipper over Pinterest, that content can easily be organized and annotated for each class or subject by way of these learning collections. It also has the benefit of being created by a teacher who has spent the last five years searching for and curating the web’s best educational content..."

EduClipper: para hacer curaduría de contenidos educativos.

Bart van Maanen's curator insight, June 10, 2013 6:30 AM

Zo te zien een prachtige manier om op een Pinterest-achtige manier online info en content te verzamelen voor in de klas. Iedere leerling kan er aan bijdragen en notities toevoegen via een bookmark app in Chrome. De originele link / vindplaats wordt tegelijk opgeslagen. Nice.

One great project to share with students that can better help them understand how and when they may use images created by others is the Creative Commons project.

A really clear article that gives easy to understand info on

Creative Commons! A nice start!


You know I'm all about #4!

Share alike: if the creator allows other to transform their work, they may also state, if someone wants to transform the work, the created image must carry the same Creative Commons license as the one that was transformed. I call this the “pay it forward” option.
