Are you ready to learn something new . . . something new about learning itself that is? Educating our clients and customers is a very large part of what we do as librarians and information professionals. Just was we work hard to stay on top of the latest innovations in research technology, so to do we need to keep our fingers on the pulse of the latest developments in education. Today's Digest is dedicated to doing just that. Teachers, educate thyselves! Enjoy.

No Data Dilettantes

Is there no frontier that big data cannot infiltrate? We often hear about the importance of big data to research and analysis, but what about education? Writing for EContent, Blake Beus makes a case for the power of big data to inform the way we inform. He writes, "Collecting and analyzing big data in the context of eLearning can yield a wealth of information that can help make learning more personal, more relevant, and more effective." Learn a few new teaching tricks of your own with: Personalize Learning Through Big Data.

Picture It

One just needs to open a browser these days to realize just how important images and videos have become to the way we communicate, entertain ourselves, do business, and even learn. What makes these forms of media so compelling and how can we harness their power when it comes to instructing and interacting with others. Slaw's Heather Gray-Grant gives us some excellent insights and suggestions in: The Move to Visuals (And Why You Should Care). A picture may be worth a thousand words, but it's heather's words that will help you make the most of those pictures. Check it out.


Practicing what I am preaching when it comes to teaching,
