Social Media – how do we use it effectively. My own children as well as the students are already so far beyond me when it comes to social media that I sometimes wonder how I can catch up or keep up with them. There are so many to choose from as well as new tools out there to begin to learn before I have become proficient at the last one. I also was reminded this week at how addictive social media can be. I have been checking my twitter account as well as my Facebook a lot more than I usually do. I think we need to take that into consideration when dealing with students and social media. I completed several Vine segments to introduce the new books at my library and will be posting them to the blog shortly. I still question whether it is our job to introduce social media at the library but am willing to take a chance and see what happens. I think it will also depend on the individual class on whether or not the lessons will be beneficial. A cartoon from John Atkins – Wrong Hands.
