Learning never stops and no one person can know it all, do it all, or learn it all! Get help fast, when you need it, by calling on experts in your personal learning network. Take advantage of additional opportunities to learn from your peers with tools such as Facebook, Google Hangouts, blogs, and other online communities. In this session, North Carolina Master Trainers Lori Reed and Jessica O’Brien will get you started as you learn how to: Crowdsource answers to questions big and small; Prevent information burnout and overload; and create your own personal learning environment.
Presented at the North Carolina Library Association Biennial Conference October 18, 2013
