Teacher librarians are involved with and responding to an information renaissance that is rewriting the world as we know it. A new generation of ‘social’ media technologies, like Twitter and Facebook, has made it much easier for people to:
use the web,
interact with one another, and
share online resources.
In fact, social networking is creating a participatory medium that is changing the very nature of our professional connections, our community practices and the nature of learning interactions in these environments.
This webinar will explore social media to uncover:
what it is,
how we can use it, and
why it has become essential for teacher librarians to become professionally competent social media users
to be able learn, teach, and communicate in 21st century environments.
