  • 3. Twitter
    • One of the best CPD tools I have ever used
    • Can connect with other professionals all over the world
    • Can ask real-time questions and get answers
    • Can collaborate on projects
    • Great for asking techie questions
    • Not just for time-wasters!
  • 4. How can I use Twitter?
    • You can use it for your own professional development
    • You can use it to advertise your library services, having a twitterstream on your library webpages
    • You can use it with an author to create a story, a bit like Consequences
    • You can use it for a Question and Answer session with someone
    • You can use it where children pretend to be characters, like Romeo and Juliet for instance
  • 5. How do I use Twitter?
    • You can use it on the website
    • Or you can install an application like Tweetdeck or Brizzly, to work on your PC
    • You can use it on your Phone – modern phones have apps for that!
  • 6. Skype Skyping is an excellent and free way to collaborate with others. Download Skype for free, and using a simple videocamera or microphone you can use Skype to do all of these wonderful things ….
  • 7. Skyping ideas
    • Talk to another colleague about a problem, anywhere in the world
    • Have a meeting of local school librarians, some joining you via Skype
    • Get your pupils to talk to others about books without the bother and expense of a trip out
    • Talk to your incoming Year 6’s on a regular basis, get them to submit verbal book reports via Skype
    • Talk to an author, as we did here with Tommy Donbavand earlier this year
  • 8. Voicethread
    • Voicethread is a powerful and easy way to collaborate with others
    • You can use it within a group, for everyone to add their own comments about a book or a piece of work
    • You can use it with your primaries to comment on books, especially the Carnegie/Greenaway books
    • You can use it to collaborate with pupils in other schools on a project, as I did
    • You can use it in a training situation, as Bev Humphrey did in the YSL4 session she delivered
  • 9. Middlespot vs LiveBinders
    • http:// midd.me/Cgki World War 1 AL Poetry resource shown in Middlespot
    • http:// livebinders.com/edit?id=16284 Same resource shown in LiveBinders
    • Middlespot has more embeddable features such as video and audio but looks more chaotic than LiveBinders
    • Both allow others to collaborate on the resource with you
  • 10. Diigo and Delicious
    • These are online areas where you can share, and collaborate on bookmarks which will be helpful for others to contribute to
    • Delicious is more organised, Diigo more social, but it is worth checking which your local filters will allow before investing a lot of time in them.
    • Diigo had great groups you can join, for peer-to-peer recommendations. Two created by UK Librarians are SLN and Extended Project Qualification Group
  • 11. A page from Delicious My latest bookmarks, including tags I have given them Tag bundles (groups of bookmarks) that I have created
  • 12. A page from Diigo Diigo bookmarklet tool in my toolbars Delicious bookmarking tool List of bookmark sets created by me
  • 13. Dropbox
    • An online free resource where you can share specific folders with different people
    • People you invite to a folder can add resources to that folder if you wish, or just view files
    • Useful as a sixth form resource, or to collaborate with other professionals
  • 14. Stickybits and QR codes – the newest type of resources
    • Stickybits: www.stickybits.com You have your own page where you store your stickybits
    • QR codes: http://www.mobile-barcodes.com/qr-code-generator / No personal page, just one-off creations
    This is a QR code giving my details. Scan it if you want to experiment. Jacqueline Wilson
  • 15. Using QR codes and Stickybits
    • Use a QR code to give static information about your library or a book, - ie. What’s on a shelf, or the website and associated films and materials you have
    • Use a Stickybit for more dynamic material ie linking to YouTube video, website, and allowing for pupils comments
    • To enable this, it would be better not to use the book’s real barcode
