International Children’s Digital Library

The ICDL is mustering many of the well loved children’s stories of yesteryear and quality children’s literature in many languages. It is becoming an archive and irreplaceable resource for language development and culture. The books are available as e-books and can be read on the site by turning the pages. The driving force behind the site is tolerance and respect for cultures. Award winning books are also featured and some very valuable links out to sites which promote reading and writing for students.

What’s in a meme?

SChool teacher meme This meme is so me. I am famous for the fact I do not let students pack up before the bell and I don’t let the bell dismiss them. As we go through our ritual greetings , we also go through our ritual farewells. I use memes sometimes to lighten the lesson or to reinforce my routines. I also use them to focus on something very specific in learning, rather like one cartoon frame focuses on something specific. It can be a good content starter. This week one of my classes will be making a meme because we have been learning the future tense and the meme will focus on one irregular verb and a common use of it. We can then move on to something more complex. Memes have become so popular they are being used commercially and there are aspects of that which can cause problems. Memes may have copyright attached to them. Fair use is deemed okay, but be careful. Also be careful because there are sites with memes which will download unwanted and unpleasant files onto your computer. That is just how the world is and we should have a central reporting agency . Every browser should have a button to click which reports sites with malware. It would make it safer for us all. In the meantime make sure you have good malware and virus protection. There has also been research on memes because they are transmitters of potted culture. Memes are passed from person to person. The popular ones represent what people see as important or a valid perception in some way. One study has found popular English language memes contain more men than women and the men are Caucasian. We need to get some better teacher memes. This one comes from a set of “unhelpful” teacher memes. I don’t see myself as unhelpful when I want my class to work until the end of a lesson. Maybe I am?
