An Ethical Island | How to Teach Without a Lecture and other fun Index. English. Home page. Association of International Librarians and Information Specialists A primary aim of The Association of International Librarians and Information Specialists (AILIS) is to foster better communication and closer co-operation amongst international librarians and information specialists in the Geneva - Lausanne area. But more than that, because of the great changes that have occurred in the world of information during last decade, AILIS provides an opportunity to learn about the trends in our profession. In particular AILIS co-sponsors the programme "Library Science Talks" which consists of 5-6 presentations per year given by internationally recognized specialists in the field. International organizations are major providers and users of data and need to stay current to continue serving their constituents with easily accessible and up-to-date information. Their libraries and information centres play a vital role in this work . AILIS assists in this effort by finding practical ways of promoting co-operation amongst its members.

RSS: What RSS is, where to find RSS feeds, how to read RSS feeds, how to publish and syndicate RSS feeds If you find yourself going to multiple Web sites every day checking for updated news, Blogs, and other content, RSS can make your life easier. If your favorite sites make their content available as "RSS feeds" — and thousands of sites do — you can check them all at once using an aggregator. If you have your own Web site, you can publish an RSS feed or republish other sites' feeds. Because it is an application of XML, news items from RSS feeds (or channels) can be sliced and diced easily. This page: Introduction | Where to Find Feeds | How to Read Feeds | How to Publish a Feed | How to Use Syndicated Feeds on Your Site | More About RSS (and Atom) Introduction: What is RSS? The following are some good, basic introductions.

Definition Of Digital Citzenship The Definition Of Digital Citizenship by Terry Heick As more and more students interact digitally–with content, one another, and various communities–the concept of digital citizenship becomes increasingly important. Which begs the question: what is digital citizenship? Well, first citizenship, which is formally defined as “the quality of an individual’s response to membership in a community.” So digital citizenship is nearly the same thing–”the quality of a response to membership in a digital community” would be a good first crack at the definition. Revising that might more clearly articulate the differences between physical and digital communities, so a decent definition of digital citizenship then might be “Self-monitored participation that reflects conscious interdependence with all (visible and less visible) community members” Still too wordy? This makes it useful not just as a visual for teacher understanding, but for students to discuss, internalize, and apply themselves.
