4 Social Media Goals Every Library Should Measure

4 Social Media Goals Every Library Should Measure | School libraries and learning | Scoop.it

Andrew K Kirk, Founder of Face The Buzz and Social Media Examiner writer, outlines 4 Social Media Goals Every Business Should Measure, but these can all easily be applied to libraries as well. It’s so important to be aware of how to measure success for marketing and outreach campaigns, especially with regard to social media since use of these tools are often more difficult to justify to stakeholders.

What distinguishes a truly vibrant school library program from one that is mediocre at best? | School libraries and learning | Scoop.it

Deep and meaningful learning is tremendously difficult. The landscape of true inquiry is littered with false starts, uncertainty, blind alleys, and cognitive dissonance. We show the very best of care for our students when we openly acknowledge this fact and help them through the uncertainty.

Digital Literacies and Web Literacies: What's the Difference? | DMLcentral

Digital Literacies and Web Literacies: What's the Difference? | DMLcentral | School libraries and learning | Scoop.it

I’m currently iterating some work around Web Literacies for the Mozilla Foundation (you can see the latest version of my thinking here). Perhaps the biggest consideration when dealing with so-called ‘New’ Literacies is distinguishing them from one another, so what I want to consider in this post is the relationship between Digital literacies and Web literacies. Aren’t they just synonyms?

The topic of digital literacies was the focus of my doctoral thesis, which is available to read online at neverendingthesis.com. The conclusion I came to after delving deeply into the research was that we need to always talk about literacies in their plurality and that there are broadly eight essential elements to digital literacies. My question when it comes to Web Literacies, therefore, is whether (a) they constitute a subset of Digital Literacies, (b) they are wholly distinct from Digital Literacies, or (c) there is some overlap between the two. These three positions are represented by the graphic at the top of this post.

The dynamic and innovative Teen Department at Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh has long dabbled in digital media projects and maker crafts with film competitions, music recording programs, gaming tournaments and DIY art projects, but to commit to an ongoing program like The Labs is unprecedented. So why not throw a great big party to spread the word and excite teens around the city?
