Adventures in Teaching with the ACRL’s Information Literacy Framework: Preface | History Year 9:  Making of the Modern World | Scoop.it
Oh, the lengths to which one goes... https://flic.kr/p/25jsBba   Once upon a time in my life as a philosophy-prof-on-the-way-to-librarianship, I decided that I was going to commit to using the ACRL’s Information Literacy Framework in my philosophy class designs.

Elizabeth Hutchinson's curator insight, March 11, 3:09 AM
"It’s not enough to have the librarian teach a one-off lesson on the subject. Rather, to become adept at distinguishing between credible and spurious information, students will need reinforcement from across the curriculum".So true!

Library Creates Genius Bookmark To Teach Students How To Spot Fake News

Library Creates Genius Bookmark To Teach Students How To Spot Fake News | History Year 9:  Making of the Modern World | Scoop.it

Though he's often wrong about his sources, President Trump is very right about one thing: there's a lot of fake news swirling around the internet these days. In fact, the problem has become so prevalent that many teachers are taking extra steps to ensure their students can tell which news is fake and which is real.

For instance, Reddit user soldier4hire was at his local library when he noticed a unique bookmark.


SOLDIER4HIRE/REDDIT
Arming their readers with knowledge, the library was distributing some awesome advice: when reading an article online, check the headline, author, and URL. Look at fact-checking sites like Politifact and Snopes to ensure the story's authenticity. Compare it to other reliable sources.

Why primary schools need to embrace picture books | News

Why primary schools need to embrace picture books | News | History Year 9:  Making of the Modern World | Scoop.it
I love picture books. I would go as far as to say I am obsessed by them. And because of that – because I use them all the time in my teaching and rave about them in our school – I know something that those schools less keen on picture books do not: they are an absolutely essential tool for boosting literacy. 

But let’s clarify what I mean by picture books. I’m talking about books where the art and the words work together to create meaning so that, without either, the story is nonsensical.

Recording studios and saunas: what Finland can teach the UK about libraries

Recording studios and saunas: what Finland can teach the UK about libraries | History Year 9:  Making of the Modern World | Scoop.it

Yes, you can borrow books – but also musical instruments, footballs and sewing machines. 


Walking through the grand entrance hall of Kallio Library in Helsinki, it's hard to believe it began life as a homeless shelter. Shelves heaving with books in different languages are neatly stacked, and a piano sits in the middle of a large event space in the centre.
There's a comic book room, a section where you can borrow musical instruments, and a rainbow corner dedicated to LGBT literature. On the top floor, the lively (but still immaculately tidy) children's section features a quiet “fairytale attic” with desks for doing homework. It's full of kids who have come straight here with friends after school, as they do most days.
“The use of libraries is changing – more and more people use this as a workspace, they're here for hours and hours with their laptops,” says service administrator Kalle Riiheläinen.

“I think that if we removed all the books and replaced them with laptop points where you can charge your battery, it would still be as crowded and full... but of course we don't want to do that.”

It can't be a coincidence that Finland, a country with one of the highest literacy rates in the world, also boasts a network of effective, well-stocked libraries that people actually use – from students and freelancers to families. Around 2,000 customers visit Kallio Library every day – more than 600,000 a year – mostly local residents who travel less than 1km. They check out half a million items annually.
