Library Video Resources
Databases: Important 21st Century Tools
Utah teaching and learning standards emphasize that students learn more and achievement improves when content is challenging, relevant, and promotes engaging learning experiences.

Join Adam Blackwell, manager of ProQuest's World Conflict Today online resource, as he demonstrates how teachers can use our state databases to tap into engaging content that turns students into advisors to our new President.

Don't miss our video series: "Advising President Obama -- Involving Students in 21st Century Learning<http://echo.bluehornet.com/ct/2822648:1478359732:m:1:43290365:0CC75B09F6B1DAAA1264AA83341FAF2B>." This offering runs about 30 minutes and is a "must see" for all middle and high school social studies teachers!

Plus, ProQuest's new "Captioning the Taliban<http://echo.bluehornet.com/ct/2822649:1478359732:m:1:43290365:0CC75B09F6B1DAAA1264AA83341FAF2B>" video teaches educators how to "read" historical photographs culled from our online resources. This will help students read between the lines and be better consumers of the visual information accessible inside our online reseach databases.
