Learning without frontiers – social media and beyond

I am really enjoying participating in the ASLA National Conference in Sydney. We have had the most amazing presentations and workshops, which together show the way forward for teacher librarians keen to participate in 21st century learning and library services.

The keynote presentations will be available as a video as well as slideshare presentations, and I will post about these when they have been completed.

Today I started the day off for the crowd with some ideas and provocative thoughts to set the scene for the second full day at the conference. I really want school librarians to embrace social media, and become  builders of knowledge in new media environments by drawing on their passion and their love of culture and learning.

Ultimately we should be Learning without Frontiers!

It isn’t about learning how to use a particular digital tool.
It isn’t about social media.
It isn’t about new media, augmented reality, immersive story-telling.
It is about our ability to understand when and how we move across the everexpanding
meta-literacy environments.

  5. ‘Meta – literacy’ what a great term. I discovered that Amazon have finally got out an ereader that might inspire kids (not in Australia yet) it’s like a smaller version of the Ipad, with all the gagets kids want, colour screens, video etc. Once kids have these, the potential for encouraging more reading is huge, especially with short stories being available for 99c (not a big committment either time or money wise). It’s exciting times.
