This is the current Grade 8 Sociual Studies Curriculum in Manitoba. The Blackline Mastsers are good and their use in the lessons is explained in the actual Cluster links. Good resource for those who have an outdated curriculum.
The problem can be solved by learning bit literacy, a new set of skills for managing bits. Those who attain these skills will surmount the obstacles of overload and rise to the top of their professions, even as they enjoy a life with less stress, greater health, and more time for family and friends. Bit literacy makes people more effective today, even as it equips them for the future.
very interseting ideas about how we need new skills to say organized in this new age - post by crobinson
The world has changed, but most people haven't caught up yet. Millions of technology users are trying to survive in the new world of bits with only the skills of computer literacy. They know how to send an e-mail and print a document, but they're powerless against the avalanche of incoming bits. Without managing their bits, users are constantly buried; not because bits are a bad or destructive force (far from it), but because users aren't applying the right skills or the right mindset.
Because tags are user-generated, when they move to the realm of books, they will be assigned faster, range wider and serve better than out-of-date schemes like the Dewey Decimal System, particularly in frontier or fringe areas like nanotechnology or body modification

Below you will find links to a selection of my online activities over the last 5 years. Some of these were assignments for my MEd, some were created to facilitate PD sessions I presented, while others were created to assist me in my instructional endeavors as both a classroom teacher and a teacher-librarian.
I completed my MEd in Elementary Education with a specialization in Teacher-Librarianship in 2011. I am interested in many aspects of teaching, learning and leading, but specifically: school leadership, leadership roles of teachers and support staff, BYOD initiatives and mobile learning, inquiry based learning and creative approaches to planning performance based assessment projects through inquiry, technology integration and web 2.0 use in schools in conjunction with the school library, cross-curricular and cross-grade integration, teacher collaboration and co-teaching with learning specialists, and of course using the school library as a learning and teaching centre of the school. I am a full time teacher-librarian at a large junior high in Winnipeg, MB, Canada. I am also a wife and mother of two wonderful little girls
