You may not have thought much about the iPad background screens of student iPads.  Whether you share a cart with your grade level or have a small set to use or even have 1:1 iPads in the classroom, the iPad background screen is key real estate that you want to integrate into your iPad management plan.  Students look at the lock screen every time they open their iPads and the background whenever they switch apps.    Here are 5 ways to utilize that space:

The History of Music Told in Seven Rapidly Illustrated Minutes - OPENCULTURE

The History of Music Told in Seven Rapidly Illustrated Minutes - OPENCULTURE | Libraries | Scoop.it
Your senses do deceive you, my friends. This is not the latest, greatest video from RSA Animate. No, this video comes to us via Pablo Morales de los Rios, a Spanish artist, who has artistically narrated the history of music — or the Historia de la Música — in a shade less than seven minutes. 6:59, to be precise. You don’t need much Spanish under your belt to realize that the story starts 50,000 years ago, then moves quickly from the Ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians, to the troubadours of the Middle Ages. The video gives disproportionate attention to classical music during the following periods — Renacimiento, Barroco, Classicismo and Romanticismo. But before wrapping up, we tack over to America and witness the birth of jazz and the blues, before heading back across the pond for the Invasión británica. Artistically speaking, it all culminates in a pretty interesting way. But we’ll let you see how things play out.

While primarily geared towards the public libraries, the idea of nostalgia being a "thin reed" for librarians to cling to when advocating the importance of libraries is appropriate for the school library, too.

Many school librarians are also charged with providing PD to their colleagues - and if they're not, well, they should be. But how do we turn that into a positive? I've heard teachers say they hope they die during PD because the transition will be so seamless. If you're going to be the provider, make it useful - this is a great place to start!

I could almost have stopped after reading that opening quote because of how deeply it resonated with me; however, the rest of this article is well worth your time. I love how the author compares prescriptive education to hydroponic gardening - it may be faster and more efficient but what is lost in the process? Are we willing to give all of that up for fast and efficient?
