MLA Formatting and Style Guide Coming Soon: A new look for our same great content! We're working hard this summer on a redesign of the Purdue OWL. Worry not! Our navigation menu and content will remain largely the same. Summary: MLA (Modern Language Association) style is most commonly used to write papers and cite sources within the liberal arts and humanities. Contributors: Tony Russell, Allen Brizee, Elizabeth Angeli, Russell Keck, Joshua M. The following overview should help you better understand how to cite sources using MLA eighth edition, including the list of works cited and in-text citations. Please use the example at the bottom of this page to cite the Purdue OWL in MLA. Creating a Works Cited list using the eighth edition MLA is a style of documentation based on a general methodology that may be applied to many different types of writing. Thus, the current system is based on a few guiding principles, rather than an extensive list of specific rules. Here is an overview of the process: Author Said, Edward W. Number

6 elements of a successful iPad implementation By Samantha Messier and Stephanie Schroeder 11/17/2014 Topics: Mobile Learning, 1-to-1, Professional learning As more districts across the United States move to 1:1 initiatives, a common barrier is financial resources, and a common temptation is to regard these initiatives as technology enterprises rather than instructional transformations. In a three-year pilot project, the Boulder Valley School District (BVSD) addressed these challenges by implementing a creative approach designed to entice public funders by providing all students with equitable access to digital devices. A key feature of our model was synergy among multiple, interdependent program elements: Community engagement A strong instructional model Digital devices and apps for students Logistical support Guidance toward high-leverage resources Ongoing, embedded professional development None of these elements alone is sufficient. 1. We also made every effort to include one of the most important stakeholder groups: parents.

THE PIPELINE: Influence--7 Rules (And You Can’t Just Do One!) They always say that in polite company we don’t talk about politics, religion, or sex. Because, well, it runs the risk of offending someone and sparking fights and passionate opinion. I never believed that, and I love engaging in the good fight for the rights associated with the basic human condition. That said, when we talk about school library funding, you can get a similar reaction. In today’s world, access to information, learning, and technology is a human right in an advanced civil society and especially in a democracy where an informed and educated electorate is critical. Nearly everything we do requires more influence and oversight than it used to. So, here’s a short list of what leaders have built and tried in our profession to influence the success of libraries for learners: 1. Lord knows we have impact studies coming out of the horn of plenty like a tornado spins off cows. 2. We’re seeing some great videos that capture the role of libraries in schools. 3. 4. 5. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Legal Copyright Issues Web Site Management Law Suits Schools Education Keeping it Legal: Questions Arising out of Web Site Management by Jamie McKenzie Copyright Issues Other Issues A Response to Keeping It Legal by Ted Nellen Lawyers Demand End to Holden Site! Legal advice? Disclaimer: The author is not an attorney and this article may not be substituted for formal legal advice from a Board attorney well versed in school law and copyright law. What this article can do is alert you to legal issues which might arise out of Web publishing - issues which perfectly well intended staff members might not anticipate. My experience as a principal, assistant superintendent and superintendent involved me in more legal issues and cases than I would have chosen, if any choice were offered at the time, but that is one curious aspect of suits. That legal experience taught me a degree of caution which I naturally apply now when exploring new frontiers. Hampering the search for sound legal guidelines is an almost complete lack of case law regarding schools and Web sites.

A New Way of Looking at Public Library Engagement in America The Pew Research Center’s Internet Project has intensively studied the changing world of public libraries for the last three years. The first stage of our research explored the growing role of ebooks, including their impact on Americans’ reading habits and library habits. Our second stage examined the full universe of library services, as well as what library services Americans most value and what they might want from libraries in the future. In March, we released a report from our third and final stage of research—the fruits of a representative national survey of 6,224 Americans ages 16 and older. It explores public libraries’ roles in people’s lives and in broader American culture—how libraries are perceived, how they are valued, and how people rely on them. The provision of digital content is certainly a key element of the services that make libraries useful. This approach is a little new for us. The table above (PDF) provides an overview of the typology groups.

Teaching Essential 21st Century Skills Today’s students need more than just instruction in the core topic areas. They also need to learn key 21st-century skills that will serve them well in a globally competitive, information-based society, such as problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, communication, and collaboration—as well as digital literacy skills such as how to find, evaluate, synthesize, and present information. These skills will be critical for success on the new Common Core assessments set to begin this year. But teaching and measuring these competencies can be a challenge, which is why a growing number of schools are adopting new approaches to instruction and assessment—such as project-based learning—that give students ample opportunities to develop these skills. With the generous support of, we’ve assembled this collection of resources to help you integrate 21st century skills into your own curriculum. eSchool News Articles 5 steps to a problem-solving classroom culture Additional Resources
