  • Let’s Start With You
  • 70% of School Librarians Report Being on Social Networks Mega Resources Mississippi State University Libraries
  • Facebook is the Most Popular Mega Resources Mississippi State University Libraries
  • But the Concerns Remain Mega Resources Mississippi State University Libraries
  • These Concerns are Universal
    • Our students must learn:
      • Managing personal and public worlds online
      • Managing information overload
      • Managing time online
    • For our students these are essential skills to master—or even just address.

  • How Do We Manage?
    • But how do we help them do this if we are still struggling ourselves?
    • I think the answer lies in this other fact—that if we are part of social networks, we are more likely to see the possibilities in the classroom.
  • Experience Leads to Value Mega Resources Mississippi State University Libraries
  • Librarians Continue to Lead Mega Resources Mississippi State University Libraries
  • But…but…but…but….
    • But what if you don’t have time or energy or interest in joining facebook or starting a blog?
    • But what if you don’t even have access to most social networks from work?
    • How do you integrate these new skills in your life as an educator?
    • How can you possibly meet these needs and learn to negotiate these worlds so you can pass on these essential new skills to your students, teachers and parents?
  • Do You Make Time For:
    • Professional Development
    • Communicating with Colleagues
    • Mentoring
