Kristin Fontichiaro's Blog About Learning, Teaching, Making Things, and Libraries Building professional capacityTeacher-librarians are well positioned to impart data literacy to teens, but who’s giving instructors the resources and support that they need to do so?Kristin Fontichiaro, clinical associate professor at University of Michigan’s School of Information, and Jo Angela Oehrli, learning librarian at University of Michigan Library, were up for the task. As principal investigators of the two-year IMLS-funded project “Supporting Librarians in Adding Data Literacy Skills to Information Literacy Instruction,” they set out to design materials for high school librarians looking to foster data and statistical literacy skills in their students.“We were seeing on our own campus that data was becoming a powerful mode of expression and wasn’t working in ways that information literacy always works,” says Fontichiaro.
Library Juice September 27, 2017 Message from Jen Hoyer of the Interference Archive in NYC: Hi all, I thought some on this list might be interested in recent updates from Interference Archive — a project near and dear to my heart. The School Library Media Specialist: Library Media Program: Introduction What is collection mapping? Collection mapping is the process of examining the quantity and quality of your collection and identifying its strengths and weaknesses. A number of authors have written about the process. The outcome of the process can serve as a guide during the collection development process. A collection map is a visual representation that graphically displays the breath and depth of the library collection.
College & Research Libraries Current Issue: September 2017 College & Research Libraries Forum on Assessment in Action Special Issue Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe, Julia Bauder, Kevin Engel, Phil Jones, and Brandy Whitlock The School Library Media Specialist: Information Access & Delivery The teacher librarian sustains a healthy collection through an effective maintenance program. I hate to throw things away. How do I know when something should be pitched? There's a really old video on first aid that the fifth grade teacher is still using. It's inaccurate in some sections. Le Fil du BBF Pensée depuis plus de 20 ans, la nouvelle bibliothèque centrale d’Helsinki (capitale de la Finlande) et nouvelle tête du réseau des 36 bibliothèques municipales, vient d’ouvrir ses portes. « Oodi », située face au parlement finlandais, suscite en France l’intérêt de nombreux médias tels France Culture, Livres Hebdo, Culture Box, Archimag, Le Nouvel Obs, Le Figaro ou encore La Croix. Destinée à « promouvoir la connaissance, l’apprentissage et l’égalité », Tommi Laitio (responsable de la culture et des loisirs à la mairie d’Helsinki) déclare qu’Oodi dégage « l’idée moderne de ce que signifie être une bibliothèque » : une maison de la littérature mais aussi une maison de la technologie, de la musique, du cinéma, et une maison de l’Union européenne. France Culture n’hésite pas à parler de bibliothèque du futur. Des studios de musique, des salles de montage de film, un cinéma et des imprimantes 3D sont mis à disposition des utilisateurs.
School Library Collection Development Resources for School Librarians - Index "It does not matter how many books you may have, but whether they are good or not." - Lucius Annaeus Seneca (3 B.C.-65 A.D.), Epistolae Morale Collection Development in General - Web Sites Information Access and Delivery - A guide for policy writing and collection maintenance by the Purdue University School of Library and Information Science. www.transition-bibliographique.fr Dans le cadre de la Transition bibliographique, un certain nombre de nouvelles zones est régulièrement implémenté dans des notices pré-existantes, lorsqu’il ne s’agit pas purement et simplement de la création de nouvelles « notices » découlant du modèle IFLA LRM. Pour ces raisons d’évolution permanente du catalogue, l’interrogation et la récupération automatisées de notices isolées ou de lots de notices vont devenir de plus en plus importantes et requerront des outils adaptés. Parmi ces outils de la Transition bibliographique, figure en bonne place le besoin d’avoir des identifiants pérennes — et pour cela la BnF utilise des identifiants ARK. Un rappel historique
Collaborative Computing vs One to One This is a guest post from Tracy Dabbs, Coordinator of Technology and Innovation for the Burlington-Edison School District. I have been supporting Ed-Tech in classrooms for nearly 15 years and during this time we have all experienced some big changes in tools and ideas. There is always some new learning design that promises to transform education and be THE solution to reach all students. One trend that seems to keep surfacing is the idea of one to one computing. What do we see in these learning spaces? We see individual students with faces in screens for extended periods of time. Reading Across a Dozen Literacies This article will define each literacy while giving examples of "reading" within each category. It takes special skills to read a swamp or a beach or a desert area. These skills also differ from region to region as the flora and fauna shift. Most of us have heard of swimmers caught in rip tides because they did not know how to read the signs or of visitors enjoying tidal flats suddenly swept up in an incoming tide much larger than anything they knew back home. Artistic Literacy Anyone can look at a painting, a photograph or a movie.
Addressing Implicit Bias Image from Manascan (2020) I must say that I have learned more about equity, diversity, bias, and inclusivity in the past year than I have during my entire adult education. Lately, students, faculty, and staff have been doing training sessions and reflective practice where I work. We are engaged in these activities because of our current national and global environment. I like that our entire school community has participated in these events.
