A Classroom Full of Risk Takers - @Edutopia

A Classroom Full of Risk Takers - @Edutopia | Learning in School Libraries | Scoop.it
No one learns without making mistakes. Quite the opposite—we learn when we make mistakes. But in the classroom, making mistakes and taking risks can be at best unrewarded, and at worst ridiculed and unnecessarily penalized.

I asked my 21-year-old son the other day what high school class had made him feel safe to make mistakes. He said that he never made mistakes. Really? He explained that he only did the work if he knew he was going to succeed. That made me think about my own teaching: Do I create a classroom where students will be risk takers?

LaDawna Harrington's insight:
The library is the place to ask questions and hunt for answers and engage with multiple literacies that allow for critical thinking and problem-solving.

Sutori

Sutori | Learning in School Libraries | Scoop.it

We strive to allow our storytellers to be as creative as they like. We are authentic and stay true to whom we are. We endeavor to deliver quality in our work.

LaDawna Harrington's insight:
This is a great tool for synthesis of a research project. I can see this as a sharing tool for individual learning with the capability of the teacher and/or student embedding interactive components throughout the telling of the story, helping to ensure reading and comprehension is happening by the enduser.

Great tool for creating digital narrative using multimedia and text to build a time line. Love it.

We’re not teaching the web correctly

We’re not teaching the web correctly | Learning in School Libraries | Scoop.it
Teenagers use social networking apps almost exclusively, and therefore, they don’t know that they are missing out on the wider web’s breadth. There are no thickets of hyperlinks, no galaxies of websites, no freedoms to hack and customize, no opportunities to learn snippets of HTML and CSS. That is because the skills they would need to take advantage of the web—to move beyond the borders of familiar apps—remain largely absent from traditional classroom settings.

Via Nik Peachey
LaDawna Harrington's insight:
School librarians should be the leaders to help build these competencies in their staff and students. The web is one source among many and the librarian can help forge the bridges to connect learning across the media landscape.
