If you can, find the time to look over this fantastic offering from our Teacher Librarian neighbours across in Australia.
It’s a treasure trove of links and inspiration.
Well done OZTLNet 🙂
Following them on Twitter is an option too – @OZTLNet and also on FaceBook as a page not a group – Australian Teacher Librarian Network.
Judy O’Connell’s description of a page is very clear “The great thing about our Facebook Page is that once you ‘like’ it, you don’t have to worry about it anymore – just see the feed in your own ‘news feed’ and reply or like right there on your computer or your iphone. Being open, but not a group, you don’t have to be a “friend”.”
I’m dipping my toe tentatively into the world of professional use of Facebook and opened librarypaula last week.
It’s my attempt to continually feed my school community and other followers information snippets, websites, apps, books tips and tricks that I think will help them with their current school work and at the same time increase awareness of how the school library and ALL libraries and librarians are indispensable!
Stepping down from my soap box now ….
2012 is evolving into the year of the Personal Learning Network for me.
The more I delve into PLN superstar Twitter, the more I wonder how did I kept current with the seemingly endless changes in educational technology,current thinking and best practice examples happening around the world as well as what’s new in the teenage literature field too.
This tweet connected me with some superstars in the education tweet-esphere, but there are plenty of inspirational NZ’ers tweeting cutting edge stuff too.
I love that I can choose when I dip into Twitter, if I want to share something, reTweet someone else’s post, read it on my phone or, just give it a rest for a few days.
If you’re new to Twitter, checkout the people I follow you need some ideas of who you could follow too- @librarypaula.
