Forging the Technology-Curriculum Link
(Education Week)

School leaders are accustomed to working hard to make curricula challenging and engaging and to make sure it meets state standards. And many educators are now becoming more skilled at using technology in their classrooms, whether it’s laptops, digital whiteboards, or smartphones. But experts say that to get the best results for students, it’s important to be deliberate and thoughtful in the way technology is incorporated into curricula. Just layering technology on top of an already existing curriculum is often not the best way to enhance the learning process and maximize the effectiveness of the technology tools available. School and district technology leaders and curriculum experts must work together to find the best way to integrate technology into teaching and learning in order to develop the most innovative and successful methods for delivering curricula to students.

Retail establishments such as bookstores, coffee shops, information services, computing services, and purveyors of e-readers are all encroaching on the library’s core user base by replicating services traditionally associated with libraries.

Truth About Social Learning
(InSync Training)

“Social learning” and “informal learning” are among the training industry’s hottest phrases these days. But there’s so much confusion over what they mean, and what they mean to those of us in the business. A few truths: • Social learning isn’t new. • Social learning isn’t necessarily ‘managed’, ‘launched’, ‘controlled’, or ‘measured’. • People in the workplace are learning all the time – without us. • Those people likely don’t think of what they’re doing as “learning”. In this session we’ll spend some time looking at real examples of social and informal learning as it happens in workplaces all the time, every day. Along the way we’ll generate some ideas for locating, supporting and facilitating social learning opportunities toward the greater goal of enhancing organizational performance.

Content Creation for Teens
(Georgia Library Association)

With more tools widely available for patrons to use to create their own content, libraries have a chance to transform from institutions that are only about borrowing to institutions about experiences. Instead of just merely collecting “stuff” and lending it out to patrons, more and more libraries are encouraging their patrons to “make something” at the library. Whether it be the hackerspace at the Fayetteville Free Library, the YOUMedia lab at the Chicago Public Library, libraries are offering more programs to encourage their patrons to be prosumers instead of just simply consumers. In this webinar, Justin Hoenke (Teen Librarian, Portland (Maine) Public Library) will discuss the current trend of content creation at libraries.

Location, Social and Mobile
(O’Reilly)

Think back 10 to 15 years ago, there was probably a kid in your neighborhood that you could pay a couple bucks to wash your car or mow your lawn. We’ve lost that sense of community over the years because the age of the internet has siloed us. With the social networking in full force, that is changing. Social, location, and mobile technologies are creating a meaningful foundation to connect a neighborhood both on and offline. Technology has finally caught up to human behavior, and we are able to use the internet to get off the internet and build a strong community together. In this webcast presentation Leah Busque will highlight how these technology trends are paving the way for new marketplace businesses and why they are so important to the success of these models.
