  • This workshop demonstrates how to make SCIS part of your Professional Learning Network (PLN) and extend your confidence in the use of social media. Library staff will investigate social media such as subscribing to a blog, and following a twitter account with a trusted service such as SCIS which will help in finding new connections & sharing resources.
    The Schools Catalogue Information Service (SCIS) uses a number of
    social media channels to help keep the school library community
    informed about its services and about issues in the school library
    world. Make SCIS part of your Professional Learning Network (PLN)
    and start connecting with school libraries online. School library staff
    getting started in social media will find subscribing to a blog, or
    following a twitter account from a known and trusted service such
    as SCIS can help in finding new connections and sharing valuable
    resources.

    Creator: Do you have your own web page? A blog? Do you upload videos, music or stories you have written?
    Today we will be looking at Joining at Collecting
  • Why should you worry about Social Media or feel the need to get an online identity?
    As an exercise Google yourself. Who is determining your online identity
    Does anyone have anything to share?

  • Have a think about what you might use social networking for?
    Do you want to share your passion, are you looking to promote yourself or your service, or are you here to learn?
  • #PLN is an acronym for Personal Learning Network. The acronym is relatively new, but the idea is not. Teachers have always had learning networks—people we learn from and share with
    The  biggest change has been in the way Social Media as enabled us to meet and communicate with people in our PLN.

  • Facebook is where the majority of Australian teacher librarians already have a presence, so we feed/publish here for maximum convenience to users.
    Survey your students and work out what percentage of them are using Facebook. What an excellent opportunity this presents for establishing a page to promote reading and/or other library services.
    Many schools and educators are still very wary of using Facebook given the negative incidents that are highly reported in the media. How many of the staff, compared to students, at your school are truly comfortable and knowledgeable with their own use of Facebook?
    We need to understand that there is a difference between personal accounts and pages and groups
  • Like pages equivalent to following on Twitter

  • Here is some good practice
    Create a page for your students to Like or …
    OLMC Library Facebook page was formed as a closed group which students have to ask to join.
    Promote books, libraries, information and reading. Makes links to quirky videos, book trailers, publisher and author sites anything to keep reading in the view of the students.
  • Here is some more good practice
    https://www.facebook.com/BrentwoodSchoolLibrary
    Create a page for your students to Like or …
  • Professional connections and professional learning. Is this where you will be offered your next job. Are you career orientated?
  • LinkedIn Groups provide a place for library professionals to share content, find answers, post and view jobs, make business contacts, and establish themselves as industry experts.

  • Social media and schools as professional learning communities by Kay Cantwellhttp://www2.curriculum.edu.au/scis/connections/issue_81/articles/social_media_and_schools_as_professional_learning.html
    Twitter is a social networking and microblogging service that allows you to send out short messages called tweets. Tweets are limited to 140 characters but can also contain media like photos or videos.
    Twitter is more than just “another social networking tool”. It differs from Facebook in that it isn’t just about reconnecting with people you know or sharing what you’re cooking for dinner; Twitter is about connecting with like minded educators for personalised and ongoing professional development.
    I find Twitter to be like a virtual staffroom where I can catch up with my PLN. It is a place where I can find advice, give advice, find great links, share my work and engage in general musings about education.
    It is a great way to share with colleagues in other schools particularly if you are the only library staff member
  • Look at who SCIS follows as a guide
    Here we have retweeted from Scootle
    Recording of a special live webinar on National Reconciliation
    And a link to a great resource for history and arts
  • Follow our tweets
    Resources for national reconciliation week
    Two best practise blogs from WA and NZ
    Interesting read How Asian am I
  • Using hashtags to categorize Tweets by keyword:
    People use the hashtag symbol # before a relevant keyword or phrase (no spaces) in their Tweet to categorize those Tweets and help them show more easily in Twitter Search. 
    Clicking on a hashtagged word in any message shows you all other Tweets marked with that keyword.
    Hashtags can occur anywhere in the Tweet – at the beginning, middle, or end.
    Hashtagged words that become very popular are often Trending Topics.
  • Here is a great example of the #hashtag #austl
    Information and links to
    Creative commons and public domain images guide
    Article on the future of school libraries
    Melbourne’s newest public library
    30 YA titles that feature divers protagonists
    Exercise Lets develop a hashtag for todays session.
  • Feeds on a particular topic collected from blogs, news readers, social bookmarking services and any RSS-enabled service.
    The editor of the Scoop.it topic then curates the feeds and pushes stories of interest to their own topic.
    The newspaper layout is automated with some limited editing of images and moving of stories enabled.
    Subscribe to the SCIS daily Scoop.it by RSS or email alert.
    Other services include Paper.Li and Tumblr
  • RSS (Rich Site Summary) is a format for delivering regularly changing web content. Many news-related sites, weblogs and other online publishers syndicate their content as an RSS Feed to whoever wants it.
    Feed Reader or News Aggregator software allow you to grab the RSS feeds from various sites and display them for you to read and use.

  • We curate (aggregate) at Scoop.it and these scoops are shared through our FaceBook and Twitter feeds
  • The editor of the Scoop.it topic then curates the feeds and pushes stories of interest to their own topic.
    The newspaper layout is automated with some limited editing of images and moving of stories enabled.
    Subscribe to the SCIS daily Scoop.it by RSS or email alert.
  • What are you interested in? Education, Libraries, Reading, Books? Will you follow your passion for patchwork or cookery or your pet?
    How do you register with a service? Twitter or Facebook Account will enable you to register to most services?
    Think about your identity? Are you going to use your real name or a nickname. Difference between Face book / Google (real name requirement) and twitter handle.
  • Creating your profile
    Think about your online identity or Twitter Handle
    Brainstorm names and share
    Search Twitter - is your handle or name available
    We could not use SCIS for consistency we use schoolscatinfo

    post a photo
  • Welcome to the ESA network Scootle, Curriculum Press and Curriculum Leadership Journal are on Twitter and /or Facebook
  • Twitpic sign up using your Facebook or Twitter login. Take a photo and upload it to Twitter via Twitpic
  • Instagram is an app available through iTunes or android. Lots of fun filters can be applied to the photo. Instagram is also a social media sharing app where you can follow your friends.
  • LibraryThing allows me to catalogue the books that I am reading whether from the Library, ebooks or borrowed from friends. A virtual library is created as it lets you catalogue, tag, rate and review your books easily. Just type the name of a book and it pulls up a list of results.
    It enables me to have a sense of what I am reading and to share that reading without maintaining a physical library.
    To find people who have similar books, read their reviews, and see what else they're reading!
  • Goodreads is a great review site. I use it often for links to reviews when I am blogging on books that I read.

    Here I will go to the Crane Wife and look at the review
  • What are the 23 Mobile Things? 23mobilethings.net
    The original 23 Things course was very much about getting actively involved in a network of peers and colleagues, getting hands-on with all the communication tools, and using a blog to post your reflections as you learn. 23 Mobile things takes this further and covers (read from list below) in this presentation I will be focussing on the above areas.
