Great tips for keeping up to date with your social media networks without spending all day. A positive approach to addressing messages that are negative in nature. That piece is valuable in itself.

Become an expert in the best mobile apps for education and content creation

 

Mobile apps are empowering for people of all ages and abilities

As librarians and educators, we are passionate about learning and access to information for all. Contrary to the popular idea that apps are only useful for “consumption,” the best mobile apps are being used effectively as tools to enable learning and knowledge creation.

Got iPads, but no time to discover the best apps?

If you’ve ever felt overwhelmed by the number of apps available and not sure where to start with finding the best ones, you’re not alone!

Many librarians have told me that they feel

excited about having new iPads, but not sure of the best apps to recommend and use.overwhelmed by the sheer number of apps available.unsure where to start with finding and evaluating the best educational apps.worried about the digital divide and the loss of access to information for all.

You might have new iPads in your library or school, but what are the best learning experiences you can create with them? You know that just throwing technology at a problem is NOT the way to go.

When you become “app-literate,” you serve your community by becoming their go-to expert on mobile apps.

Keeping up with useful, high quality apps is always difficult. It's good to get recommendation from a reliable source.

Librarians prevalent in use of social media - Analysis & News - Research Information

Librarians prevalent in use of social media - Analysis & News - Research Information | I'm for libraries! | Scoop.it

Jodie Bell of Taylor & Francis asks: how important is social media as a communication tool?

Research Information: February/March 2015

A social media white paper

Taylor & Francis sought to address some of these questions by conducting research into how the library community is currently using and applying social media. Libraries have been particularly prevalent in their uptake of social media, and use it as a key medium for engaging with their users. As such, it is an issue close to the heart of how libraries are evolving and Taylor & Francis wanted to help benchmark current use and provide best practice recommendations to help navigate what the future may bring.

The research conducted was on a global scale – more than 600 librarians worldwide contributed their thoughts, suggestions and experiences through focus groups, telephone interviews, an online survey and a Twitter party. All the research was then compiled into a white paper, which has now been published online and is available to download for free.

 

The white paper can be accessed online for free, along with accompanying top level data, infographic visualisations of key findings, video presentations and more. See http://bit.ly/socialmediatf for more details.

Secrets of a Killer Blog Post: Images [infographic] | I'm for libraries! | Scoop.it

You already know that well-researched, high-quality content is the backbone of a killer blog post. But don’t underestimate the importance of a strong visual component when you’re composing your latest and greatest update for your audience

The human brain processes images in as little as 13 milliseconds—less than the blink of an eye.

A post with an image is far more enticing to the bounce-happy readers of the Internet than one without, and is more likely to be shared on social media as well.
