Joyce Valenza On Social Media

 14 Ways K-12 Librarians Can Teach Social Media - NeverEndingSearch - Blog on School Library Journal
  • As always, Joyce Valenza's critical eye helps us all see how social networks fit in the complex patterns of information fluency.
    • This is the best time in history to be a teacher-librarian. Major shifts in our information and communication landscapes present new opportunities for librarians to teach and lead in areas that were always considered part of their role, helping learners of all ages effectively use, manage, evaluate, organize and communicate information, and to love reading in its glorious new variety.
