Kate Williams's curator insight, October 28, 2013 4:01 AM

November's focus for Soical Biz is IMAGES (following the focus on Pinterest in October). There are some really helpful free tools available to help any entrepreneur, image-challenged or not, make an impact at image hungry social sites e.g. Pinterest, Facebook and Google+. There's no doubt images draw attention and drive visibility and traffic.

Maria Eva Blaiotta's curator insight, March 24, 7:24 PM

Free tools which will help you create your own images with quotes.

From the article: For teachers, the takeaway is simple: technology is no longer a feel-good way to develop buzz and honor authenticity, but rather a matter of academic merit and fidelity..."

The take-away for librarians? OWN the ability to manipulate, suggest, troubleshoot, and define appropriate technology for teachers to use. Make yourself indispensible in this realm - remember, we keep our jobs not because of what we have but because of what we do.
