Why more schools aren’t teaching web literacy—and how they can start. Fourteen years after we first published ‘Teaching Zack to Think,’ here’s a new three-part framework for making sure students are internet savvy By Alan November and Brian MullRead more by Contributor May 8th, 2012 If you follow the dictate that we teach what we test, it’s understandable why schools haven’t spent more time preparing students to be web literate since NCLB was passed.

Why more schools aren’t teaching web literacy—and how they can start

In 1998, a 15-year-old high school student used the personal website of a professor at Northwestern University, Arthur Butz, as justification for writing a history paper called “The Historic Myth of Concentration Camps.” That student, who we will call Zack, had been encouraged to use the internet for research, but he had not been taught to decode the meaning of the characters in a web address. When he read the web address, he assumed that the domain name “” automatically meant it was a credible source.

Libraries & the Internet Toolkit

No other medium provides us with so much information so easily. At the same time, the Internet has raised concerns about privacy and children's access to information. As the number one point of entry to the Internet outside of work, school or home, libraries, especially public libraries, address these concerns every day. The American Library Association (ALA) has produced this "toolkit" to assist librarians in managing the Internet and educating their public about how to use it effectively.

What Are Classrooms Like for Students with Learning Disabilities? By: Kate Garnett How do general education classroom environments respond to individual differences and needs?

What Are Classrooms Like for Students with Learning Disabilities?

How readily do teachers alter their forms of classroom organization; how readily do they modify approaches? Common classroom conditions can and do affect many students adversely-to some degree, at one time or another, in one way or other-but, some students are especially vulnerable to classrooms' hazards (e.g., children of poverty, nonnative speakers, those with attention deficits).

The PARCC Assessment. ISTE Standards For Students. Bloom's Digital Taxonomy. This is the introduction to Bloom's Digital Taxonomy. The different taxonomical levels can be viewed individually via the navigation bar or below this introduction as embedded pages. This is an update to Bloom's Revised Taxonomy which attempts to account for the new behaviours and actions emerging as technology advances and becomes more ubiquitous. Bloom's Revised Taxonomy describes many traditional classroom practices, behaviours and actions, but does not account for the new processes and actions associated with Web 2.0 technologies, infowhelm (the exponential growth in information), increasing ubiquitous personal technologies or cloud computing.Bloom's Digital Taxonomy isn't about the tools or technologies rather it is about using these to facilitate learning.

Outcomes on rubrics are measured by competence of use and most importantly the quality of the process or product. For example.

An Advocacy Toolkit for School Librarians. During 2011, Colorado schools began implementing the newly revised Colorado Academic Standards, which incorporate workforce readiness and 21st century skills.

We believe that School Librarians are uniquely qualified to teach to and assist in the implementation of the new standards; they are 21st Century skills experts. In order to better communicate to our community members what "21st century skills" are all about, we created a brand or “taglines” for the 21st century skills of the Colorado Academic Standards (seen at left). 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.
