But the protesters who gathered on the library’s front steps to decry what became known as “Librarygate” preferred a different term: “purged.” “Put a tourniquet on the hemorrhage,” one of the protesters’ signs declared.

1. Online Learning Today - eduMOOC: Online Learning Today... and Tomorrow

Online learning can be traced to the early days of computer assisted instruction. In the late 1960's and early 1970's the advent of widespread terminal-based learning systems such as the early PLATO system created foundations for what has evolved over the intervening half century. Online learning as we recognize it today emerged shortly after the advent of the Web in the early 1990's.

Celebrating Picture Book Month with the 2014 Picture Book Smackdown. Our 2014 Picture Book Smackdown was a huge success.

Celebrating Picture Book Month with the 2014 Picture Book Smackdown

Students in 5 states including Georgia, Texas, Connecticut, Maine, and Pennsylvania shared their favorite picture books along with 2 amazing authors, Dianne de Las Casas and Anne Marie Pace. Anytime you host an event like this, you worry about technical difficulties. However, today the internet gave us smooth sailing. I do want to take a moment to uncover some of the pieces that went into making this event successful. There was a lot of preparation that went on behind the scenes. I created our Google Plus Hangout on Air event page well in advance so that we could advertise our smackdown to all of our networks.All of the authors and participating schools have been communicating with one another via email, twitter, and a shared Google doc.

All of the participating schools had students prepare in advance. LISTSERV 16.0 - LISTSERV Archives at LISTSERV.SYR.EDU. Published Homepage. Caveman Dewey. Banned in My School.

Renew Your Support for Intellectual Freedom with Sept/Oct 2015 Issue. The September/October 2015 Knowledge Quest issue is coming to your mailbox just in time for Banned Books Week and Banned Websites Awareness Day. The theme is “Intellectual Freedom–Enduring Values in a Changing World.” Many things have changed in K-12 education and school libraries, but the issues of access and equity, filtering, challenges to library resources, protecting students’ privacy, and labeling persist. The principles of intellectual freedom are as important as ever. Policies up-to-date? Pentlin on blocking web sites. Two examples made me start thinking about this issue [reconsideration of blocked websites].

I use Skype in my library science classes and one of my students said she couldn’t use Skype at school. She had found this out when she wanted to Skype her husband who was serving in Afghanistan The district refused to let her use Skype even after school to participate in a graduate class or to contact her husband. It doesn’t take much reading to realize that Skype, Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook are being blocked by a number of school districts even though there are many examples in the literature of effective educational use social media.Not too long ago a school district near me systematically blocked any Web sites that dealt with homosexuality. I am happy to see AASL continue the work of eliminating the censorship of online tools and resources.

Although digital resources still only get a day, while banned books (those old-fashioned paper things) get a whole week, the work does continue. Filtering and hypercompliance. The guy who does my taxes says that good citizens pay every penny they owe - but not one penny more. That pretty well summarizes a sensible view of compliance with any law. Follow it, but don't go overboard. A driver is not more law-abiding by going 10 mph under the speed limit. Unfortunately, too many technology decision-makers "hyper-comply" with CIPA.

Why Choose History? Our recent conversion to Common Core standards makes our non-fiction collection a vital piece of our curriculum. Teachers are always asking for more science and history texts to use in their classroom.

Our sixth and seventh grade social studies standards also focus on Europe, Asia, and Africa, so we need this section of the media center to be current and up to date. Because many of these books are related to specific countries, we want to make sure that the titles are up to date, given world events over the past fifteen years. The standards require that students understand how governments, economic systems, politics, and recent change affect each country. I am hoping to completely revamp the history section of our media center to be engaging and useful to students.
