Libraries Change Lives - Huffington Post | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

Want to hang out with a bunch of really smart people? Spend a day at a convention of school librarians. That's what I did on Friday, November 15 in Hartford, Connecticut at the biannual convention of the American Association of School Librarians. What makes them so smart? They are exemplars of what the Opening Session speaker, Tony Wagner, author of Creating Innovators: The Making of Young People Who Will Change the World, says the country needs if we are going to produce the many young innovators needed for our technology-driven new world order.

School libraries enhancing student wellbeing - SCIS | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

The school library is the hub of the school. It is a place for students to come and be free from the expectations of time, home, playground and classroom. It is a safe place where students can come to chill out, meet, talk, study, make and play. For many students, school libraries have always been a place of refuge from the playground or extreme weather.

Learning Styles & Neuro Linguistic Programming Distinctions

https://kb.com.au/ | Everyone has a preference for how they like information to be presented to them so they can process it with relative ease. We also have preferences for the way we analyse and evaluate information and then communicate it to others. Identifying personal learning styles is a major key to improving your performance and that of your students. When we become more familiar with learning styles we can help our students learn faster, more efficiently and easily.

 

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) can provide us with some insights into how we can learn and communicate best. 'Neuro' refers to the mind, 'Linguistic' is about language and 'Programming' is about our sequences of repetitive behaviour and how we can act with purpose. NLP modalities and submodalities can provide important distinctions that are evident in each learning style.

 

A blended learning approach will be presented as a pathway to help teachers develop teaching programs to engage students in active learning.
