Basics of on-line citizenship.

Wow, I’ve finally made a PowerPoint presentation I’m pleased with and uploaded it to SlideShare and now I am embedding it back into my blog!  It’s been a bit of a process – using the software, finding the appropriate images, accurate attribution and acceptable layout for eye-catching publication.  Designed for use with primary students & young adults to consider content and publishing features.

This is such an important aspect of the teacher librarian’s role – to get these ‘safety on-line’ ideas and habits understood happening with all students and teachers.

This is an example of how an ePortfolio can be used as a repository of the artefacts of one’s learning and skill building.  The collecting of ideas and reflections on that development form part of the evaluation process in the learning cycle.  Next I’d like the image to cover the slide and the text to be superimposed.

Promoting new titles with Pinterest – via Alida & @joyce NeverEndingSearch

See on Scoop.itAboutBooks

This is how I made the Pinterest pages for my school. This is as close to a step-by-step process as I can give.  The best way to learn it is to play around with it yourself. Once you get the hang of it, it’s easy.

I started a Gmail account for my library and chose a password that I would feel okay sharing with other people.  I want my aides and any other librarian who might follow me in the position to take over the social media accounts. I use this account for every social media account I use for my library.
