  • John Seely Brown "What is the single best indicator of success at college today?  Is it SAT scores? No.  GPAs? No.  Wealth of your parents? No.  It is your ability to join or form your own study groups—pull people like you together, talk through material.  This idea works digitally too – it doesn’t have to be face to face.  A lot of students do joint problem solving through SMS, Facebook, chat, etc.  So they are building in the virtual world an amazing study room to help them through their learning processes."  I create groups to create social accountability and knowledge creation. I also have developed a way that the students can develop questions based on what John Seely Brown said. I'm attaching my barebones worksheet here. I used this today in class. Next time I use it, I think that I will add a portion that will have students ask their group members for their questions, what are they curious about, on their topic. 
  • Knowledge is no longer that which is contained in space, but that which passes through it, like a series of vectors, each having direction and duration yet without precise location or limit. In the future, it seems, there will be no fixed canons of texts and no fixed epistemological boundaries between disciplines, only paths of inquiry, modes of integration, and moments of encounter.
  • So, in terms of moments of encounter, let’s talk about the moment when one explores using the QR code. Here are some examples of what other libraries are trying with QR codes. QR Codes session – mobilize the book stacks
  • QR Codes session – mobilize the book stacksDanielle Kane at UC Irvine presented what they did at their library.
  • The Art librarian had the QR code go to the LC subject headings classification system so that the user could learn more about the areas. The Chem librarian had QR codes linking to the mobile database for SciFinder.
  • @librarywillieiPad Faculty Learning Communityhttp://www.slideshare.net/williemiller2/ilibrarian-2011-internet-librarian
  • Preload the apps onto the iPad before class. Put them all into one folder. Explain the expectations for the class. Get the iPad ready to go. Plan the activities in great detail before class. This instruction using the mobile site encourages them to search without a computer – search anywhere. Mobile research using different news applications and teaches the bias and how each media group presents the information differently.
  • Explain what we did/ what changed
  • 27.7% increase in length of ave encounter - on average interacting longer with the display30.6%increase in gate count ratio - higher percentage of people coming through the gate are interacting with the displaySignificant jump of both the Poster and the Kindle: from 14.7% to 23.8% when the display relocated to 2nd floor

    6. 6. Where do libraries fit into that future of knowledge?
    7. 7. Where do libraries fit into that future of knowledge?• Make knowledge personal• Foster group, participation, and cultivated knowledge in instruction sessions• Enable study groups• Study groups not just face to face but via Facebook, Adobe Connect, etc.• Cultivate inquisitiveness• Create collectives of learning• The library is enabling moments of encounter• The library is helping enable paths of inquiry• Develop critical reasoning• We’re more important than ever because we can figure out this information “on the fly” http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/17940819

    9. 9. Library on Demand Linda Gordon Darryl Swarm Kitt Vincent October 17, 2011Internet Librarian, 2011 – D104, iLibrarian: Virtual, ipads & Mobile Devices
    10. 10. Goals of “Library on Demand”• Supplement existing in-person, email, and telephonic (not eliminate) library research instruction outreach to remote locations.• Use multi-channel instructional technologies to optimize outreach activities, reaching larger numbers of students, “on demand” when instruction is desired but library faculty resources are constrained by physical distance and budget limitations.• Use multi-channel communication and technologies to optimize student learning modality preferences and differences.

    11. 11. Project Phases• Phase I – Pilot One Campus Five classrooms at once (2 campuses) Testing with campus staff, feedback, re-test Testing for audio, video, and bandwidth• Phase II – Add Campuses, one at a time Increase class participation – classes offered 5 evenings and weekends - 5-8 classrooms per campus – 1-9 campuses per evening• Phase III – Individual Instruction, etc. Each class specialized library instruction Invite other departments, i.e. career services, tutoring, etc. EdDyr2VideoTapedLibraryonDemandPP11- 23 23-09
