Class Badges | South Salem Library - 12 views

  •  
    "In order to make this program grow, students will have to take a role in terms of creating and managing their badges. Of course, we will be there to guide the students, but it will require students to be a little more creative with their time in the library. We feel this will be a positive program to help student learn time management skills, as well as increase their reading throughout the school year."

You've Got to Walk Before You Can Run: First Steps for Managing Born-Digital Content Re... - 14 views

  •  
    "You've Got to Walk Before You Can Run: First Steps for Managing Born-Digital Content Received on Physical Media is intended for anyone who doesn't know where to begin in managing born-digital materials. It errs on the side of simplicity and describes what is truly necessary to start managing born-digital content on physical media, and it presents a list of the basic steps without expanding on archival theory or the use of particular software tools. It does not assume that policies are in place or that those performing the tasks are familiar with traditional archival practices, nor does it assume that significant IT support is available."

Survive and Thrive! An Advocacy Toolkit for School Librarians - 42 views

  •  
    "On this site, you will find message templates (sample e-mails, letters, newsletter blurbs, brochures, and even videos) containing these taglines and targeting specific stakeholder audiences in order to promote school librarians as 21st century skills experts. We hope that these sample templates will be used by school librarians and school library advocates to inform their communities about the vital and irreplaceable role that school librarians play in teaching and learning. Maybe you'll get inspired to create something for us that we can use, too. In the meantime, we hope you find this site helpful."

ipadcentral - home - 19 views

  •  
    The laptop untethered us from the fixed desktop location and allowed technology to become mobile. A new range of devices is now breaking many of the final shackles of computing use that were not conducive to effective educational practice. A range of these devices have been available for many years but it was the release of the iPad that has seen wide educational acceptance of the alternative mobile device.

Nearpod - the mobile classroom - 16 views

  • Nearpod is an interesting new service that teachers can use to create, deliver, and monitor student use of educational content on iPads and iPods. Nearpod is still in a closed beta (they are looking for pilot schools), but what I have gathered about it so far indicates that teachers use it to create quizzes, polls, Q&A activities, and instructional presentations. Teachers using Nearpod to deliver quizzes and polls can look at students' responses individually or in aggregate.

SCIS | Teacher librarians as cultural change agents - 13 views

  •  
    "Teacher librarians are involved in the process of change whether they are implementing a program for the first time, making changes to an established program, or participating in some aspect of ongoing school improvement" (Oberg, 1990). The very essence of the work of teacher librarians - improving teaching and learning - requires that they work within the culture of the school and that they also work to change the culture of the school.
