  • Disclaimer: I am in no way suggesting I have a “big brain”. I just like to think of the internet and social media as “the big brain”.\ntoilets, computers, exits, breaks, questions any time please\nBreak at 9.45 am\nif at any point you would like to see a live action shot, please ask\n
  • Student at CSU specialisation - Information & Knowledge Management\nPre-family: not for profit, Bank of England, secretary, personal assistant, project coordinator\nPost-family: TAFE, volunteer, disability support worker, volunteer webmaster, parent and now librarian-in-training\n
  • I am here to share with you what I have learned (particularly through uni studies) about communicating, learning and creating a PLN through social media\nSocial media, in particular using social bookmarking to save and curate my web discoveries and Twitter for connecting me with librarians, other students, have both expanded my learning more than simply textbooks, forums and uni chat.\n
  • I am an enthusiastic user of social media and I believe that the positives far outweigh the negatives.\nI am excited by the ability to connect with people all over the world and being able to access their ideas, writing and challenges.\nThis is the big internet brain.\nJudy O’Connell encouraged me to submit an abstract for this conference and here I am.\nJudy’s blog was one of the first library blogs I read. Following her on Twitter gave me the confidence to send her a tweet and we eventually met at the CSU residential earlier this year.\n
  • By the end of this session, we will have explored how to begin, how to join the conversation, using Twitter, Facebook, blogs and social bookmarking.\nWe will have created accounts for these apps and sent first/new messages out into the social media world.\nMy aim is for you to feel encouraged to dip your toe in, and to experience just how much learning and collaboration is going on out there.\nSocial media and its applications come in many shapes and sizes. They won’t all suit you. But I want to help you find the ones that do.\n
  • Why? Who is already using? Examples of successful and unsuccessful attempts (me and invite group)\nWhat are your views and perceptions of social media?\nCollaborate, Communicate, PLNs - use example of who I follow on Twitter?\nDistance study and how we use it to connect and collaborate\n
  • Facebook...\nUseful for research, a lot of organisations have developed a FB page first, rather than any other social media.\nGood way of reaching an audience (provided they are on FB!) Pages/Groups\nPersonal Page\nSecurity/Privacy\nLike pages helps you to find other relevant and similar pages. This page leads you to ALIA, ASLA, Love2Read etc\n

  • Don’t be shy! (easier to say than do!)\nRespond to a question, retweet what you think might interest others.\nAs with everything online, be careful what you say. There is a lot of swearing etc on Twitter, its your choice to use or not.\nTwitter is overwhelming.\nMy advice: slowly follow people. If you go quickly and follow 100 people all at once, it will freak you out!\nInstead: follow one or 2 at a time until you get used to the flow of information and news.\n\n
  • Different to Facebook: you can follow/unfollow as you like. Different from FB “friends”\n@mstephens7 - Michael Stephens\n@Tracy_Chevalier - author\n@readit2011 - Read and tweet about what you are reading. Check each month's theme on the blog. Run by NSW Readers Advisory Working Group.\nTwitter has over 100 million active users (8 September 2011)\nDon’t be afraid to unfollow people who don’t suit your tastes and interests.\n\n
  • Hashtags let you follow common topics. For example, you can click on the #ASLA2011 hashtag and follow all the tweets from attendees at the conference!\n\nIf Twitter is a worldwide conversation, then #’s let you join a slightly smaller and more specific one!\n

  • 2 examples of #’s.\n#spbkchat is every Thursday at 8 pm, AEST. There is a different theme each week.\n#followalibrary is on the 1st of October every year. This year an extra # of #myfavouritebook was added.\n

  • Readers/Apps: Feedburner, Feedly, Google Reader\nWho to follow and how to find: Blog Every Day of June, Movers & Shakers, Presenters/Keynotes at ASLAXXIII, recommendations from the group\nSteve Wheeler: Associate Professor of learning technology in the Faculty of Health, Education and Society, at Plymouth University. Steve also has a great links list to other technology focused educators.\nBlog Every Day: over 58 people blogging for 30 days. Mixture of the personal and professional. Challenging, fun and a great way of making new connections.\nMovers & Shakers: US centric, but Ellen Forsyth, Aaron Tay, Ned Potter (Wikiman)\n
  • Its all about what app. works for you. You will like the look and layout of some and not others.\n
  • How do you manage the blogs you follow?\nIf you have a Google account you might like to start with Google Reader. It isn’t very pretty but it is fairly simple to use.\nYou can read all your subscriptions in a long list, scrolling to the end, or do the same for a category.\n
  • Feedly has a different layout and is more “magazine” style\nGreen circle is categories that I have divided my blog reading into.\n\n\n
  • Make your bookmarks public or private.\nAnnotate and highlight.\nDelicious: sold by Yahoo recently. This week has changed format which is now very different from its original format. Much unhappy discussion in the twittersphere and biblioblogosphere.\n
  • \n
  • Diigo/ASLAXXII folder to save what we find. Available for all participants for future reference and as an opportunity to share what you find.\nReally cool “Play as Webslides” option for Lists/Folders\niPad for note taking.\nSet up accounts\nStart talking\nGo to Part 2\nPrivacy\n
  • Ask questions: what did you find? what was interesting? what worked/didn’t?\nRemind Hashtag and Diigo\n
