Library media specialists can use social media to acquire, SHARE, and produce information.
Students can use social media to acquire, SHARE, and produce information.
We can use social media to remain on the edge.
We can social media to get connected.
We can use social media to contribute our own knowledge, and provide help for others.
All of these are qualities of a Personal Learning Network. (PLN)
Not a new concept!
Where you get your knowledge
BC version of PLN: teachers within your school, public librarian, professors at local LS (local scale)
AC version of PLN: social bookmarking, Twitter, list-servs, wikispace communities, blogs, etc. (global scale)
Expect a learning curve, but maintain learning as your priority
Commit, and try one type of social media at a time.
Choose your connections wisely!
Devote any amount of time.
Find a few good blogs: create a Google account, and start using Google Reader to collect new posts!
Remember to make learning a priority, and once you grow in confidence, begin to contribute to the great pot of knowledge!
Twitter: Complete your bio so that other teachers will know you are legit. Go private to protect yourself from being “followed” by undesirables.
Blogs: No matter who recommends a blog, check it out yourself before subscribing to its feed.
Filters, blocks, and censorship…OH MY!!!
