Personalized Learning Should Start in Libraries

Personalized Learning Should Start in Libraries | Librarian Scoop du Jour: School Libraries, Literacy and Educational Technology | Scoop.it
Can a library be the perfect place for personalized learning? We believe the answer is yes. Libraries offer endless resources, space for learning, and individuals who are ready to assist students in the learning and research process. Sometimes when professors’ office hours do not line up with students’ schedules, we often forget, that librarians are here to help us too! That’s why we have libraries and librarians! Even if we think it is intimidating to approach a librarian, it should not be, because they are the experts in libraries! Not only are librarians available to assist us, but they are also available to teach us how to use the resources that the library has to offer.

I agree. What is needed are librarians in schools. In the schools I taught at, there was a concerted effort to eliminate libraries and librarians. That has to end.

A Makerspace Built by Elementary Students - Edutopia #makered

A Makerspace Built by Elementary Students - Edutopia #makered | Librarian Scoop du Jour: School Libraries, Literacy and Educational Technology | Scoop.it
When Ocean City Primary School, where I work, asked a group of 8-year-olds to create something, the students were given one design requirement: Whatever they created had to better the school community and solve a problem. This allowed students to be creative and explore their interests in addressing a real-world issue. Students realized that they had an authentic opportunity to make a difference in their school.

Why Self-Directed Learning Practices Make Us Better Learners

Why Self-Directed Learning Practices Make Us Better Learners | Librarian Scoop du Jour: School Libraries, Literacy and Educational Technology | Scoop.it
When you’re finished with school, do you stop learning things after you graduate? Of course not, and why should you? In a basic sense then, self-directed learning could be called the conscious, willing, and continuous growth of intelligence. It’s about taking ownership of learning, and that’s exactly what we want our students to do.

Love this...."that intrinsic learning is more powerful than incentive learning, yet it’s more fragile. Once you attach a reward, the value decreases."

But Google Classroom’s power to transform your school library has received less attention. Here are five ways to use Google Classroom in a school library: 1. Flip the classroom: By setting up a Google Classroom, teachers and librarians can easily provide videos, interactives, and other instructional media that students can use outside of class.

For each of Bloom’s thinking levels we came up with a number of suggested tools that go with it. We have been very selective concerning the choices included and because of space constraints we  excluded several other tools that worth the mention here. Also, the visual is not hyperlinked, check out the chart at the bottom of the page for links of the featured tools. For an iPad version of this graphic, click here.

hen employing Design Thinking in the classroom, documenting each step in the process presents a challenge to teachers as well as students. However, the multimedia capabilities of Book Creator offer up a robust solution to this problem.

First, with Book Creator, students can use a variety of media to document their work. Next, teachers can create multimedia templates to guide and scaffold their students through the Design Thinking process. Finally, completed design books can be published in a number of ways, allowing students to showcase not only their completed work but their thinking along the way.

Demco Post: 3 Design Challenges for the Low Tech Makerspace

Demco Post: 3 Design Challenges for the Low Tech Makerspace | Librarian Scoop du Jour: School Libraries, Literacy and Educational Technology | Scoop.it
Design challenges are a favorite tool of mine for inspiring student creativity in makerspaces (that’s why I co-wrote a book about them).  And by using low-tech materials in combination with design challenges, you can easily and affordably inspire student creativity.  Low-tech materials remind us that a makerspace is not defined by the specific materials and tools they contain, but rather by the learning experiences they create for students.

3 Design Challenges for the Low Tech Makerspace
To help make it easier for you to try out low-tech design challenges, I’ve written up prompts (based off the format in the book), supply lists and recommended resources.  Many of the supplies are things you may already have in your makerspace. If you don’t, you can easily source them.
