I AM A {SOCIAL} LIBRARIAN infographic - Free download! | Library learning centre builds lifelong learners. | Scoop.it
Download, embed and share The Social Librarian infographic. The social librarian is enmeshed in the fabric of the Internet of Things as curator, educator, filter and beacon.

 

"Social today means so much more than sending a tweet or posting to Facebook. The social librarian is enmeshed in the fabric of the Internet of Things as curator, educator, filter and beacon. In this complex, dynamic and demanding environment, librarians are extending themselves and empowering library users.

In recognition of this, Elsevier's Library Connect Newsletter (@library_connect) and Joe Murphy (@libraryfuture), Librarian & Technology Analyst/Trend Spotter, offer up a visual portrait of The Social Librarian, and invite you to download and post, share on your social streams, and discuss with your library stakeholders.

I would have used "Gathering" instead of Google for the letter G. As much as I do not teach students to exclude Google as a search tool, I insist they use other databases (Nettrekker, Discovery Ed, & other encyclopedias) first.

"I realized it doesn’t matter if a book is “for” a guy or a girl; the gender of the intended audience tends to get all mixed up when you factor in the power of a good story. Boys like stories; girls like stories. Readers in general like stories. We need to forget what we think about boys and reading and find them the stories they want."

ThingLink is a flexible tool for teaching and learning that can be used for a wide variety of purposes in education. At it’s most basic level, teachers and students can start with an image, define it through multimedia and pack it full of content to present knowledge and ideas. It’s a great tool for teachers at any level of tech integration because of it’s simple, flexible design.
