Transcript of Blogging: A Tool For Every Librarian's Toolbox

Knowledge Building Community Promoting Services Encouraging Current
Awareness Advancing Image Establishing Digital Footprints Teaching Digital Citizenship “One of my worst fears as [my children] grow older is that they won't be Googled well. … that when a certain someone (read: admissions officer, employer, potential mate) enters "Tess Richardson" into the search line of the browser, what comes up will be less than impressive. That a quick surf through the top five hits will fail to astound with examples of her creativity, collaborative skills, and change-the-world work. Or, even worse, that no links about her will come up at all.” (Will Richardson, 2008) "online portfolios of who we are,
what we do, and by association, what we know"
(Will Richardson 2008) “Digital citizenship can be defined as
the norms of appropriate, responsible behaviour
with regard to technology use”
(Mike Ribble) "blogging TEACHES digital citizenship. How do I want to represent myself online?
What does this piece say about the author?
Are these all my original thoughts, or should I cite some sources that helped or inspired me?
How can we engage in respectful, thoughtful conversations, even if we disagree?
These are all questions you’re forced to think about when you’re writing for an online audience."
(Vicki Davis, 2011) “You can not teach appropriate
digital citizenship
if you can not model it.”
(Suzie Nestico, 2011) “An online community can significantly improve staff development, skills and motivation, leading to direct benefit for library services.”
(Scottish Information and Library Council, 2011). honest appropriate responsible "blogging in effect, can contribute to an endless cycle of learning through content creation, feedback, reflection and refinement of thinking. It is this kind of critical reflection cycle that can build excellent, creative, flexible and responsive education"
(Steve Wheeler, 2010) Blogging:
A Tool for
Every Librarian's
Toolbox Social Media “there was a great opportunity to sail to new horizons and new things, or that we were going to drown by this [social media] wave”
(Vic Gundotra, 2011) nearly 163 million blogs worldwide more than 69, 000 blogs are created every 24 hours "Digitally re-shifting your school library is about harnessing the power of new ideas like Web 2.0 to help fulfill the mission of school libraries. It does not necessarily mean discarding the old, but rather reconsidering what works best in meeting new challenges in a changing educational world. It's all a part of helping students become literate users of information in order for them to have successful careers in school and beyond. Remember that for some students, a rich school library experience may be their only library experience. Let's use every opportunity to help our students engage the joy of reading and the power of information."
(Chris Harris, 2006) (Gail Dikinson, 2010) “Watching just doesn’t work. For those librarians who don’t connect on social networks, you are missing out on what is happening with your major market. Libraries are social institutions and should be on social networks.”
(Stephen Abram, 2011) comment question authors videos podcasts databases trailers blogs referencing reviews resources actively engaging in information seeking keeping up to date on issues and trends information discussion feedback reflection knowledge student-centred content interactive tools Julia Smith "digital footprints should be seen as potential tools for learning, finding like-minded peers,
and building reputations as thoughtful contributors
to meaningful digital conversations"
(Bill Ferriter 2011) "there are two kinds of librarians - those who just watch and those who get involved. If we are to survive, we need to be the latter. We need to talk about our value, communicate better, advocate for ourselves and our users."
