10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Schools, Libraries, education and the 21C | Scoop.it

The potential of social networking sites in education is huge and we need to capitalize on it to enhance our professional development and consequently improve the quality of our instruction. Searching for articles on this topic , I came across Doug Johnson's post on the 10 social media competencies for teachers [http://doug-johnson.squarespace.com/blue-skunk-blog/2010/7/31/top-ten-social-media-competencies-for-teachers.html ]. I like the competencies Doug included and decided to make an infographic featuring all of these skills.  Have a look and share with your colleagues.

Information Literacy Weblog: The Road to Information Literacy: Librarians as Facilitators of Learning

"The Road to Information Literacy: Librarians as Facilitators of Learning http://t.co/EHgdAI95..."

 

Sheila Webber:

The Road to Information Literacy: Librarians as Facilitators of Learning was a conference that took place last week in Tampere, Finland, as a pre-conference satellite of the IFLA conference. You can see what the programme was on the website here:

http://iflasatellitetampere2012.wordpress.com/programme/

 

(The photo of Tampere is by tempuu_ on Flickr) 

 

One of the impressive feats was to get the published proceedings produced by the time of the conference, although it is a bit pricey (Euro 99.95):
Gwyer, R., Stubbings, R, and Walton, G. (2012) The Road to Information Literacy: Librarians as facilitators of learning. The Hague: De Gruyter. IFLA Publications 157. 
ISBN: 978-3-11-028100-2. The information is here:http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/181777
