How to Establish a Strong Community in an Online Course

How to Establish a Strong Community in an Online Course | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

One of the most common questions we hear from instructors who are first moving to an online teaching environment is, “How do I build community in an online class?” For some reason we have equated the idea of being in the same physical space and meeting at the same time as developing a community.

Ten ways teacher librarians improve literacy in schools

Ten ways teacher librarians improve literacy in schools | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

Australian schools constantly strive to improve the literacy outcomes of their students. Supporting literacy achievement for struggling readers is particularly important because these readers have their disadvantage compounded: capable students develop “richer” skills through continued exposure to reading, and the gap between them and struggling readers widens. If schools and policy-makers want to boost children's literacy, they should invest in teacher librarians.

Concept Mapping in Education: Teachers' Guide - Educator's Technology

Concept Mapping in Education: Teachers' Guide - Educator's Technology | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it
Concept mapping is a learning strategy that involves visualizing relations between concepts and ideas using graphical representations. It is a form of graphic organizer that consists of various circles or boxes (called nodes) each of which contain a concept and are all interlinked through linking phrases. The role of these linking phrases is "to identify the relationship between adjacent concepts" (McClellan and Broggy, 2009).
