Posted by Julia Robeck on March 5, 2015

Sqworl, like Delicious and Diigo, is a bookmarking tool that can be useful in the classroom. Sqworl takes a screenshot of the sites you bookmark and opens each bookmark in the same browser tab for easy navigation.

Richard Byrne demonstrates Sqworl’s visual bookmark features in his video below.

can a blog be a library web page

Posted by Plamen Miltenoff on March 4, 2015

Yes it can and I, Plamen Miltenoff, am trying to convince my esteemed colleagues and administration at LRS to consider educause blog hosted at SCSU as the main vehicle for information. Main consideration is that integrated the blog (as social media) with other social media.
At this point, I have not received an indication that I am even understood what am I proposing. It is that desperate.

MEANWHILE,

ALA offers the following eCourse:

Using WordPress to Build Library Websites

http://www.alastore.ala.org/detail.aspx

it has happened in the past that SCSU money is spent on activity, which I am educated and experienced to deliver. Lets hope that before someone signs for this workshop, h/she might turn fist to me for information.

If you have a desire to bring your departmental Web presence in the 21st century, please feel welcome to contact me.

Social Homework Platform-

Posted by Plamen Miltenoff on February 25, 2015

Social Homework Platform Aims to Boost Student Engagement

http://campustechnology.com/articles/2015/02/25/social-homework-platform-aims-to-boost-student-engagement.aspx

Another step ahead/afar from CMS?

Koondis works in traditional large introductory lecture classrooms, blended classes and fully online courses that often are filled with students enrolled from various disciplines who are required to be there for their majors.

Described as a “social homework system,” a “discussion forum that puts students in small groups” and even a replacement for the campus learning management system, Koondis is showing great promise as a pill for student satisfaction.

The idea is that Koondis eliminates the need for teachers to read all of the posts. The program even counts posts for the instructor for grading purposes, and alerts the faculty member to do follow-up when a student isn’t participating.

Should information literacy be about digital literacy? Geo-spatial knowledge?

Should information literacy include videos? Games?

Should information literacy be multiliteracy? Transliteracy?

This is what Gen Z will expect from information literacy in particular, from library and education in general:
