Top 10 ways to use technology to promote reading - Home - Doug Johnson's Blue... - 0 views

  • Young readers like know more “about the author” and the Internet is rich with resources produced both by the authors themselves, their publishers, and their fans.
  • Make sure older kids know about free websites like Shelfari, LibraryThing, and Goodreads. Biblionasium id great for younger readers.
  • Destiny Quest allow students to record what they’ve read, write recommendations, share their recommendations with other students and discuss books online.
  • ...8 more annotations...
  • While not designed just for sharing reading interests like the tools above, generic curation tools like Pinterest, Tumblr, ScoopIt - along with older tools like Delicious and Diigo - allow the selection and sharing of interests among students.
  • multimedia tools to generate creative responses to books - and then share them with other students online. Using Glogster, Animoto, poster makers, digital image editors and dozens of other (usually) free tools, students can communicate through sight and sound as well as in writing.
  • Creative librarians do surveys and polls on book related topics using free online tools like GoogleApps Forms and SurveyMonkey. (Collect requests for new materials using an online form as well.) Does your library have a Facebook fan page and a Twitter account to let kids know about new materials - and remind them of classics?
  • Get flashy with digital displays. 
  • less expensive to bring an author in virtually using Skype, Google Hangouts or othe video conferencing program.
  • Check out the Skype an Author Network website to get some ideas.
  • Take advantage of those tablets, smart phones and other student-owned (or school provided) devices by making sure your e-book collection, digital magazines, and other digital resources are easy to find.
  • Book Bowl in May. Students form teams and then we use the book bowl questions from the site to have a great competition.

Scaling: The Problem of More - Robert I. Sutton - Harvard Business Review - 0 views

  •  
    Scaling challenges nearly always come down to the same problem: the difficulty of spreading something good from those who have it to those that don't - or at least don't yet. It is always, in other words, the problem of more.

Poetry 180: A Poem a Day for American High Schools (Poetry and Literature Center, Libra... - 0 views

  •  
    "Poetry 180 is designed to make it easy for students to hear or read a poem on each of the 180 days of the school year. I have selected the poems you will find here with high school students in mind. They are intended to be listened to, and I suggest that all members of the school community be included as readers. A great time for the readings would be following the end of daily announcements over the public address system.

    Listening to poetry can encourage students and other learners to become members of the circle of readers for whom poetry is a vital source of pleasure. I hope Poetry 180 becomes an important and enriching part of the school day."

Mary Ann Hoberman: Children's Poet Laureate - 0 views

    "
    In October 2008 I received the Children's Poet Laureate award and will serve for two years. During that time I will be doing what I've been doing for over fifty years, but more so and with a much wider forum! As I see it, my mission is to spread the delight of children's poetry and poetry in general, to be a sort of Pied Piper for children's poetry. While continuing to write and recite my own poems, I will also be presenting the work of other wonderful children's poets in talks and readings and videos. "
