Alida promoting book titles with Pinterest — @joycevalenza NeverEndingSearch

See on Scoop.itTeaching through Libraries

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.

Virtual mentor – words from guru Joyce

I first saw this Vimeo clip a couple of years ago – and have revisited it recently as I reflect on how my repertoire of skills has increased; my knowledge has developed and my philosophy on being a teacher-librarian has become more clear throughout my Masters studies over the last 2 years.  I thought it worth embedding within my blog because it is such a powerful presentation of all the things to consider, as I aspire to be a better ‘information specialist’.
