Sonic Literacy: A Manifesto for Libraries in the Age of Podcasts (Georgia Library Association)

In this era of podcasting, libraries should be considering podcasts not just as potential outreach projects but as an essential and unavoidable piece of the information world. Our patrons are podcasting consumers and producers; we can support critical listening, quality self-publishing, and effective discovery of produced audio. One librarian podcaster shares recommendations and strategies for libraries to engage podcasting as a part of information literacy, our collections, and our connections to patrons.

Competition in Education Supports Computational Thinking (edWed)

Teaching computational thinking (CT) to students is everyone’s responsibility. If you have a makerspace in your library, there is a very good chance you are teaching (CT). If you provide board games or if students play games on the computers, they are using computational thinking. This webinar will discuss how competitions can help new generations of students with self-expression and the ability to analyze and solve problems. Competition doesn’t work well with some students and that is okay. This webinar may still give you ideas that you can integrate into your activities. For those students who thrive on competition, you’ll enjoy what the webinar has to offer.
