Meeting the uncommon core of our work using social media in the library

5/15/2014 12:00:00 AM
I had the opportunity to speak with a few hundred librarians today to discuss how we can get to the uncommon core of our work using social media.  You can see the presentation below and visit it at this link. It is made available for others to view and copy if there is something you want to share with others. 

Highlights include:
  • What is social media (from a dog's point of view)?
  • Why we need social media to prepare students for college, career, and citizenship success?
  • How does social media help us meet the common core standards?
  • The new rules of social media.

See some ways librarians are connecting their students and share how you are connecting yours.
