  • Special Library 2.014 Keynote with Michael Stephens on "Finding Balance: Reflective Practice and the Profession" - Wednesday, October 15th at 7pm ET. Join us for a special post-conference keynote session with information superstar, Michael Stephens, tomorrow night! Reflective practice is mindfulness to the nth degree. Information professionals should be thoughtful about the decisions they make, about the projects they take on, and about how we put ourselves out there in the online world.

Those are merely tools. Join the session at https://sas.elluminate.com/d.jnlp?sid=2008350&password=LIB2014Part121.

Education Revolution Google+ Community

  • Against College. Conversations around the real value of the college degree are becoming more critical, and the volume is becoming louder for those who are challenging the traditional model of higher education. This article looks at UnSchool San Francisco, where students focus on applied practice and experiences that translate into tangible employment qualifications. At UnCollege, students spend three months on "campus," a house in the Mission District of San Francisco, refining their interests and learning how to sell themselves. As part of the program, students also travel abroad, create a project to show potential employers and intern with a company related to their future careers. Maybe this isn't the model for every learner, but it provides a compelling and alternative narrative to the story that's been told for the last several decades.
  • Why You're An Expert (Or Not). This recent article by Sara Briggs of InformEd, explores the cognitive science behind exceptionally skilled learners and practioners of various fields. The article suggests that the difference between novices and experts in a wide variety of fields can be attributed to a single trait, the trait that prompts great writers to consider their readers: the ability to step outside of yourself. The article reviews a variety of subjects for expert versus novice cognitive patterns and learner attitudes. How can we train our brains to think differently about subjects that we struggle with? How can we help learners shift their thinking and take their learning to the expert level? Read more.
  • More About Google Apps For Education (GAFE). Classroom educator, Matt Miller, shares 10 ways to incorporate GAFE in your classroom.
