Peek inside Brittany Horning’s second-grade class at L’Ouverture Elementary School, and you’ll see kids sprawled on large ottomans, perched atop bouncy seats, lying back on gamer-style recliners and using footstools as makeshift desks.

Does the classroom of the future look more like a coffee shop?

It looks more like a living room or a neighborhood coffee shop – minus the whirring espresso machine – than a traditional classroom with rows of desks. “The kids really enjoy being in this environment.

ODLIS > odlis_A

As defined in FRBR (Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records), one of a set of characteristics enabling users of information to formulate queries and evaluate responses when searching for information about a specific entity. Attributes can be inherent in the entity (physical characteristics, labeling information, etc.) or supplied by an external agent (assigned identifiers, contextual information, etc.). For example, the logical attributes of a creative work include its title, form, date of creation, intended audience, etc. As a general rule, a given instance of an entity exhibits a single value for each attribute, but multiple values are possible (a work may be published under more than one title or in more than one form), or a value may change over time (date of publication for serials).

50 thought-provoking quotes about libraries and librarians

Libraries are essential in a process of giving citizens access to knowledge. In digital times they are needed more than ever before. Get your library card, and you’ll be able to borrow a print or electronic book, use free internet, or attend a course improving your digital skills. Most importantly, however, libraries are the places where you can expect smart and clear answers to even most difficult questions. As Neil Gaiman says: “Google can bring you back 100,000 answers, a librarian can bring you back the right one.” In times of the internet, everyone can visit a library without leaving home. I’ve visualised some of the quotes to let you easier share them in social networks – and promote libraries to a growing community of online addicts.

Function Follows Form: How Google Apps can transform 21st Century Learning Presented by Michelle Luhtala, Head Librarian, New Canaan High School, CT In the Emerging Tech community's webinar this month, presenter, Michelle Luhtala, educated participants on the benefits of using Google Applications in the classroom.

Schools across the country pledge to teach 21st century skills, but building a culture of collaborators can prove difficult. Luckily, Google Apps for education provides tools to transform an insular learning community into a collaborative one. In this session, the presenter introduced Google applications that empower teachers and students to learn together outside of the boundaries imposed by geography and time. Watch On Demand. 10 Reasons Why Handheld Devices Should Be Banned for Children Under the Age of 12. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the Canadian Society of Pediatrics state infants aged 0-2 years should not have any exposure to technology, 3-5 years be restricted to one hour per day, and 6-18 years restricted to 2 hours per day (AAP 2001/13, CPS 2010).

Children and youth use 4-5 times the recommended amount of technology, with serious and often life threatening consequences (Kaiser Foundation 2010, Active Healthy Kids Canada 2012). Handheld devices (cell phones, tablets, electronic games) have dramatically increased the accessibility and usage of technology, especially by very young children (Common Sense Media, 2013). As a pediatric occupational therapist, I’m calling on parents, teachers and governments to ban the use of all handheld devices for children under the age of 12 years. Following are 10 research-based reasons for this ban. Please visit to view the Zone’in Fact Sheet for referenced research. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Web2MARC/DL2SL: Making our OPACs more gracious hosts.
