The Many Faces of TPACK/English Language Teacher Education TYPICAL EDUCATION OR TPACK’L EDUCATION IN ELT[edit] by Sercan Çelik Knowledge, Its Transformation and English as Lingua Franca[edit] Evaluating Websites as Information Sources Studies suggest that many U.S. students are too trusting of information found on the internet and rarely evaluate the credibility of a website’s information. For example, a survey found that only 4 percent of middle school students reported checking the accuracy of information found on the web at school, and even fewer did so at home (New Literacies Research Team & Internet Reading Research Group, 2006).

Being a librarian in a post-truth society This week Oxford Dictionaries decided to announce that their word of the year was ‘post-truth’. Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past year, and trust me I sometimes wish I had been as a survival technique, the way in which information has been passed around especially within the political world has been quite striking in its emotive overtones with an emphasis on how facts make people feel as opposed to how objective those facts may be. As librarians, a large part of our professional skill set is helping people find information that is accurate and making sure that people are equipped with the right skills to be able to identify any bias behind that information, good or bad. Librarian Approved: 30 Ed-Tech Apps to Inspire Creativity and Creation Tool discovery is often a challenge for teachers interested in finding ways to use technology that will change the way they and their students work. With so much going on in the classroom, many teachers don’t have the time to test out various apps and find the perfect tool to meet their needs. Luckily, several tech-savvy librarians have been curating the apps their colleagues find useful and sharing the all-stars with one another through personal learning communities (PLC) and edWeb webinars. These educators are paying attention to their own working habits, as well as those of students, to figure out which technology products and trends are here to stay.
