Resources for Using iPads in Grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12 by Monica Burns - Edutopia | H.S. Library Media Specialist | Scoop.it

Edutopia is one of my favourite web sites. It has recently run a series written by Monica Burns aka @ClassTechTips featuring Resources for Using iPads across multiple grade levels. Though I've featured them each individually here on iPads in Education I thought it might be useful to post all of the series in one collection.

"Literacy implies a fuller understanding and a rounder knowledge. A literate person is aware of multiple information sources, the pros and cons of media forms, and the value and credibility of information. A literate person can process diverse data sources, and suggest macro relevance and micro application of seemingly disparate ideas."

The Myth Of Digital Citizenship And Why We Need To Teach It Anyway | EdReach | H.S. Library Media Specialist | Scoop.it
At one time in the not so distant past there were no cell phones. And then everything changed at a rate faster than the speed of amending a student handbook. I can distinctly remember the first time one of my 8th grade students brought a cell phone to school. It really wasn’t that big of a deal, more of a novelty really. I mean one student with a cell phone had next to no bearing on our day to day school operations. But then a second student brought a cell phone.

In addition to helping students acquire new knowledge, teachers today also need to guide students in developing the skills they need to become more self-determined and lifelong learners. These are competencies that can help teachers do just that.

Using Wikipedia in information literacy instruction

As an information literacy instructor at Auburn University, it has been a perpetual struggle to teach students how to successfully search for library resources when they come to their one-time library sessions with only a broad paper topic and no idea how to narrow it down. A student recently told me regarding an English composition due in a few days, “The topic is so broad, I can’t pick an argument. I don’t even know where to start.” I began encouraging students to use a resource that they feel comfortable with as a starting point—Wikipedia.

Beaucoup de critiques sont encore émises contre Wikipedia, mais cela ne m'empêche pas de l'utiliser. Comme toute source d'information, elle peut être critiquée, ne peut être suffisante, nécessite des vérifications, mais doit être considérée comme une source possible parmi tant d'autre.

Karen Draper's curator insight, January 29, 2014 10:49 AM

This is what I teach my students-- get ideas from Wikipedia, use it as a jumping point. Make sure all info is backed up by primary & secondary sources.

MsGatto's curator insight, January 31, 2014 11:39 PM

Using Wikipedia as a starting point can assist in narrowing a search that will lead into vetted databases research.
