  • UW Virtual Hub Library: Plans for 3D Information Literacy

    1. 1. UW Virtual HUB Library (a transliteracy libraryno format boundaries) A library, throughout history, has been a place to house the highest quality resources of civilization. Today, as more of life is spent online, the resources of libraries are evolving into new formats beyond the book. This virtual 3D library hub brings you… GLIMPSES INTO THE FUTUREOF THE LIBRARY
    2. 2. What should the library of the future look like? Google is working on it! Yet, there is something missing. Google allows everyone to upload everything. Not everything is high quality, accurate, aesthetically pleasing…or even interesting.
    3. 3. Google Scholar is buried under "more and more" in the side menu. Access to information is no longer a problem. We have access to TOO MUCH INFORMATION. Information literacy skills for 21st century learners has become top priority.
    4. 4. What resources are essential in a virtual world library?
    5. 5. #1. Links to virtual spaces and other virtual worlds
    6. 6. #2. A balance of tradition and innovation Tradition Accuracy Authority Ethics Quality Innovation Creativity Global view Collaboration User-generated
    7. 7. #3. A space for global constructivist learning Global constructivist learningConsider the virtual library as a "consortium" of virtual media or a “maker space” for high quality constructivist learning. ORBIT 3 Kinetic Sculpture by Carl Pisaturo at Maker Faire 2008
