Got lots of new devices heading your way? I’m betting they are heading towards you even if they aren’t there yet. How will your library manage them, will they change the way you teach students to engage with information? Will you have to scramble to catch up or will you embrace them and learn the new tricks so that you can be one step ahead of your students? Do you need to be one step ahead of the students? Could they be teaching you new tricks? Head over to the Core Education blog, plenty to see other there today as they explore data engagement and what it means for education. They don’t think much about the library in particular over at Core, but they do look at the trends and some of these trends are going to definitely impact on libraries in education.
Today I was being told about a Livescribe. I started to think about the impact that would have on special needs students in our school. Yet more engagement with data, yet more data to carry around in your pocket along with your other devices.
Stand back folks, more clever stuff heading your way, into your schools and therefore into your libraries. While you are over there be sure to watch Hans Rosling, he is my maths crush!
