Introducing new technologies to your library can be a daunting process; they can be costly, they may be unfamiliar to many staff members, and their success is far from assured. To address these concerns, Best Technologies for Public Libraries accommodates budgets large and small, providing options for both the ambitious and the cost-conscious.
Authors Christopher DeCristofaro, James Hutter, and Nick Tanzi provide a resource for staff looking to incorporate a number of emerging technologies into their library and makerspaces. Each chapter explores a new technology, including 3D printing, drones, augmented reality, and virtual reality, covering how it works, the selection process, training, sample programming, best practices, and relevant policy. By describing a variety of program and service ideas across age groups, the book gives readers the ability to first evaluate them within the context of their own organization before incorporating ideas la carte. This approach helps readers to adopt these new technologies and create policies with uses already in mind.

Описание: Examinations are deeply embedded in our culture and govern the career prospects of millions of people around the world. The University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate, now Cambridge Assessment, was at the forefront of introducing public examinations for schools with the aim of raising standards in education.

Zheng Название: Examining Multiple Intelligences and Digital Technologies for Enhanced Learning Opportunities ISBN: 1799802507 ISBN-13(EAN): 9781799802501 Издательство: Eurospan Цена: 114920 T Наличие на складе: Есть у поставщика Поставка под заказ. Описание: Multiple intelligences (MI) as a cognitive psychology theory has significantly influenced learning and teaching. Research has demonstrated a strong association between individual intelligences and their cognitive processes and behaviors. However, it remains unknown how each of or a combination of these intelligences can be effectively optimized through instructional intervention, particularly through the use of emerging learning technology. On the other hand, while efforts have been made to unveil the relationship between information and communication technology (ICT) and individual learner performance, there is a lack of knowledge in how MI theory may guide the use of ICTs to enhance learning opportunities for students. Examining Multiple Intelligences and Digital Technologies for Enhanced Learning Opportunities is an essential reference book that generates new knowledge about how ICTs can be utilized to promote MI in various formal and informal learning settings. Featuring a range of topics such as augmented reality, learning analytics, and mobile learning, this book is ideal for teachers, instructional designers, curriculum developers, ICT specialists, educational professionals, administrators, instructors, academicians, and researchers.

Описание: Metaliteracy in Practice will provide inspiration for librarians and educators in need of up-to-date and thought-provoking information literacy curricula and instructional approaches. Editors Trudi E. Jacobson and Thomas P.

The case studies contained in this collection detail the hows and whys of curricular design for metaliteracy, suitable for both beginners and seasoned professionals.

Описание: This new book presents a comprehensive structure for information literacy theory that will help your students grasp an understanding of the critical thinking and reflection required to engage in technology spaces as savvy producers, collaborators, and sharers. Today’s learners communicate, create, and share information using a range of information technologies such as social media, blogs, microblogs, wikis, mobile devices and apps, virtual worlds, and MOOCs. In their new book, respected information literacy experts Mackey and Jacobson present a comprehensive structure for information literacy theory that builds on decades of practice while recognizing the knowledge required for an expansive and interactive information environment. The concept of metaliteracy expands the scope of traditional information skills (determine, access, locate, understand, produce, and use information) to include the collaborative production and sharing of information in participatory digital environments (collaborate, produce, and share) prevalent in today’s world. Combining theory and case studies, the authors: show why media literacy, visual literacy, digital literacy, and a host of other specific literacies are critical for informed citizens in the 21st century; offer a framework for engaging in today’s information environments as active, self-reflective, and critical contributors to these collaborative spaces; and connect metaliteracy to such topics as metadata, the semantic web, metacognition, open education, distance learning, and digital storytelling. Readership: Any librarian involved in teaching information literacy, LIS students, academics and researchers.
