The practical steps described here could be adapted into a very useful language lesson for advanced language learners preparing to enter university.

Deborah Rinio's curator insight, April 9, 2014 11:28 AM

Evaluating information is a critical life skill. Without sufficient practice, our students will not internalize this skill, and will not remember it from lesson to lesson. Talk to you librarian today about integrating the process of evaluating information into your research projects and lesson plans today!

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, December 6, 2016 10:06 AM
If you're someone that likes to start with the "why" this article will get you well on your way to reimagining your learning spaces. I love that author Melina Uncapher talks about the scientific research behind learning spaces and why it's important to think differently about the way they are designed. Of course, if you have a library with no outside windows or other barriers, you will have to be creative in coming up with a work-around. BUT - if you have a reluctant administrator or one that wants to know why you should bother with updating/changing your space, this is a good place to start. Enjoy!
