Floyd Pentlin's insight:
At Springfield Township High School Library in Glenside, PA, the portal does seem to have run amok. Librarian Joyce Valenza taps students to upload photos of Springfield life, including coverage of sports and school clubs events to the library's Flickr page and Pinterest board--the latter of which is tagged, "A collage of school culture." Student artwork is also archived on the library site, because, says Valenza, "The library curates student life and the students helped do it." Students set up Skype sessions with authors and poets through their virtual book club; they lead discussions during town-wide community reading events; they organize poetry slams; they post their school projects to the library's website in a Student Project Guide.
