The Crisis in School Libraries

The Crisis in School Libraries | school library development | Scoop.it

Since the early 1990’s, school libraries have continued to erode; each year more school boards must make the difficult decision to reduce proper staffing in the school library and to cut back or stop the purchasing of school library resources.
This decline is having a direct negative impact on student achievement and reading engagement. Students who are in schools without a staffed and resourced library program are not receiving the same education as students who have school libraries.

School libraries need more staffing and resources in the digital age.  We need to make school leaders aware of the direct negative impact of cuts to staffing and budgets.

Some valuable e-safety thoughts :) 

Owen Kim's curator insight, March 7, 2015 4:48 AM

Social media is something that almost everyone uses and can give significant impact to people. Some people cannot differentiate what is and what is not appropriate to upload or publish hence it is good that everyone knows what and when to upload. Some people now days leave negative comments because of inappropriate posts which may lead to conflicts between people or hurting one's emotion. I feel that people should be sensitive when uploading a post so that negative impacts of social media will not worsen.

Sze Min's curator insight, March 8, 2015 6:20 AM

Almost everyone has social media accounts nowadays. But it stills narrow down to whether you are using it appropriately or not. Especially when the social medias are linked together, you would have to be careful on how you use it, as once the photos or status are online, everybody in the world would be able to see it.

I'm a visual learning and I wanted to include this article because if others see themselves as visual learners, this might be a helpful way to look at the idea of blended learning and the effects it has been having over the years. 

Please give this diagram a look and let me know what you think!

MARTA's curator insight, April 23, 2015 6:03 AM

Con el Blended Learning  los estudiantes y maestros llegan a experimentar con un método de enseñanza multimodal en la que el aprendizaje digital y virtual se mezcla con el presencial. Sin embargo, una de las ideas erróneas que circulan entre los que son menos entusiastas sobre el uso de este método de aprendizaje en las aulas es que el aprendizaje mixto no es otra cosa que la sustitución de los profesores con la tecnología. La infografía  echa por tierra este mito y cuenta los numerosos beneficios de aprendizaje combinado. Echa un vistazo y comparte con nosotros lo que piensa de él.
