In this session, we explore how to use social media to help students create, collaborate, and connect while seamlessly integrating the AASL Standards for 21st Century Learners. You’ll discover concrete and strategic approaches for using and teaching social media tools with students to cultivate information literate learners, including blogs, wikis, social bookmarking, feed aggregators, and Google tools.

    connecting the dots of information literacy with social media
    presented by buffy hamilton | internet @ schools east| april 2010
  • the information landscape is changing rapidly in today’s world
  • how do we support and scaffold
    students’ ability to
    read
    and write
    an ever-growing world of
    information?

  • how do we
    adapt
    our
    practice as
    librarians to effectively
    cultivate
    informationally fluent students who will
    thrivein today’s society?

    keep your traditional sources of authoritative information in your research pathfinders, but let the research topic and mode of research guide the integration of social media information sources and tools for delivering that content to help students navigate the maze of today’s information world

  • create conversations about authority and social scholarship by providing pathfinders with balanced and diverse sources of information
    • 1.1.5 Evaluate information found in selected sources on the basis of accuracy, validity, appropriateness for needs, importance, and social and cultural context.
    • 1.1.6 Read, view, and listen for information presented in any format (e.g., textual, visual, media, digital) in order to make inferences and gather meaning.
    • 4.1.7 Use social networks and information tools to gather and share information.

    keep focusing on teacher collaboration, but focus on creating conversations and teamwork with students as well
  • create conversations about collaboration, leadership, and social responsibility for shared knowledge construction
    • 2.1.5 collaborate with others to exchange ideas, develop new understandings, make decisions, and solve problems
    • 3.2.1 demonstrate leadership and confidence by presenting ideas to others in both formal and informal situations
    • 3.2.2 show social responsibility by participating actively with others in learning situations and by contributing questions and ideas during group discussions
    • 4.1.7 use social networks and information tools to gather and share information
  • research wiki
  • literature circle wiki
  • 3
    keep assessing student learning using traditional tools, but use alternative modes of assessment like blog to engage students in metacognition and to actively reflect on their research strategies
  • create conversations about adaptability and research strategies using blogs
    • 1.2.5 demonstrate adaptability by changing the inquiry focus, questions, resources, or strategies when necessary to achieve success
    • 1.2.6 display emotional resilience by persisting in information searching despite challenges
    • 1.4.1 monitor own information-seeking processes for effectiveness and progress, and adapt as necessary
    • 4.1.7 use social networks and information tools to gather and share information
  • student reflections: blogging
    “When I blog I feel like I have a voice and that people are listening. Even if my blog doesn’t have a high rating I still know it is mine and my words. To think of my self as a resource is an awesome idea. Blogging can be a bit challenging, but I think that is what makes it fun. If there is not a challenge then it takes the fun out of learning.”

    keep teaching students how to access and consume information, but place an equal emphasis on knowledge and content creation
  • create conversations about alternate representations of knowledge, organizing knowledge, sharing learning reflections, and sharing resources.
    • 2.1.1 continue an inquiry- based research process by applying critical- thinking skills (analysis, synthesis, evaluation, organization) to information and knowledge in order to construct new understandings, draw conclusions, and create new knowledge
    • 2.1.4 use technology and other information tools to analyze and organize information
    • 3.1.2 participate and collaborate as members of a social and intellectual network of learners.
    • 3.1.1 conclude an inquiry- based research process by sharing new understandings and reflecting on the learning.
  • student reflections: presentation zen
    “I like that I cannot rely on my slides as much.  It requires me to actually learn what my project is about and not just copy and paste a whole paragraph into my power point then read it right off the slide when I am presenting.  I felt that I was more connected to the class while presenting and I really liked that, it made me feel better about myself while I was actually up in front of the class.”
  • student reflections: presentation zen
    “I like it SO much more. You feel so much more comfortable and relaxed when you can just look at your audience instead of reading bullets off a power point.  Thank you to Mrs. Lester and Mrs. Hamilton. I know that my grade does not match with how much I have learned. Even though my grade isn’t what I would hoped it to be, the learning I have received will be with me forever, and for that I am strongly appreciative.”

    keep creating research pathfinders for students, but teach students how to forge their own paths for learning and build their own information portals

    • 1.2.2 Demonstrate confidence and self- direction by making independent choices in the selection of resources and information.
    • 1.2.3 Demonstrate creativity by using multiple resources and formats. 2.1.1 continue an inquiry- based research process by applying critical- thinking skills (analysis, synthesis, evaluation, organization) to information and knowledge in order to construct new understandings, draw conclusions, and create new knowledge
