Information Literacy vs. the Demagogue | The Journal of Creative Library Practice | Digital Literacy in the Library | Scoop.it

If your information literacy really is about promoting informed citizenship, it needs to address more than just search techniques and the characteristics of various formats of information.  It needs to encourage questions about the judgments and choices people make when they create, disseminate, and buy into political information.

Thoughtful and thought-provoking article.

Flipping the Library: Tips from Three Pros | The Digital Shift 2013 - The Digital Shift

Flipping the Library: Tips from Three Pros | The Digital Shift 2013 - The Digital Shift | Digital Literacy in the Library | Scoop.it
Three experts shared tech tips and tools during “Flipped School Libraries,” a rapid-fire, dynamic session during The Digital Shift: Reinventing Libraries (#TDS13) webcast.

 

 

Through the use of innovative technologies and online resources, school libraries can now be available tostudents wherever—and whenever—they need them. “Flipped” or blended learning offers students thepower of personalized instruction, through a mix of virtual and face-to-face interactions, at a student’s own pace. Embracing this concept is a must for student engagement and the future of the profession, say school librarians Joyce Valenza, Brenda Boyer, and Michelle Luhtala.

Building Technology Fluency: Preparing Students to be Digital Learners

On a given day, how much time do your students spend working on their fluency? At the elementary level, hours are devoted to reading and speaking fluency. In middle and high school, students read alo
Mary Reilley Clark's insight:

"Not only can a truly fluent student speak, listen, write and comprehend, but he or she can also make inferences and construct new meaning."  This also defines what I hope we're doing with Common Core, and in my experience, it's an enormous shift in students' expectations.  Making them do the thinking can be frustrating after years of memorization and regurgitation.

I'd love to see students using some of these ideas!  When we were discussing website evaluation, students had great ideas for sites to look at, and it definitely enhanced the learning for all of us. We looked at Twitter feeds for McDonalds, Seane Republicans, and others.

Hit the Mark with Digital Media Exit Cards

Hit the Mark with Digital Media Exit Cards | Digital Literacy in the Library | Scoop.it

"For teachers, the key is how to get the learning to spill out of the classroom and continue the conversation. As the school year starts, digital tools via mobile devices are a perfect resource for breaking down the walls of the classroom, gathering immediate feedback on learning, and sharing in social media communities."

Mary Reilley Clark's insight:

I'm not sure how much of this is summarizing instead of synthesis, but I love the idea of digital exit cards.  It wouldn't take much time to set up a Google form with one question, and limit answers to 15 words or less.

Perfect article for winter break! Read, reflect, and maybe redefine the rest of the school year.  I'm inspired by Joyce's definition of a library collection: "...less what you buy and more what you use and make discoverable."  There's plenty of work to be done when you look at your collection that way!

27 Simple Ways To Check For Understanding ~ TeachThought | Digital Literacy in the Library | Scoop.it

"Checking for understanding is the foundation of teaching.Whether you’re using formative assessment for data to personalize learning within a unit, or more summative data to refine a curriculum map, the ability to quickly and easily check for understanding is a critical part of what you do. (Which was the idea behind our post last March, “10 Assessments You Can Perform In 90 Seconds Or Less.”)

 

"The following infographic Mia MacMeekin offers up 27 additional ways to check for understanding. Some aren’t necessarily quick–”Test what you learned in a new situation”–but there are a dozen or more other ideas that are worth adding to your teacher toolbox, many of which aren’t content-related, but rather cognitively-related (Locate 3 people who agree with your point of view.)"
