Joining Pinterest makes a completely different experience.  Although the mandatory initiation task to follow others’ boards may have seemed rather awkward at first, it soon became clear, within the first ten minute interaction with the interface, that it’s nothing less than a kickstarter activity to help novices smoothly plunge into this innovative platform.images

Mi primer contacto con Google + fue impulsado más por curiosidad que por necesidad de satisfacer unas necesidades comunicacionales o divulgativas, pues  ya contando con una cierta experiencia en la comprobación de herramientas web 2.0 especialmente las destinadas a la docencia. Así,  intrigada por el volumen creciente de tuits y comentarios de compañeros de Maestría en Bibliotecas de la Universidad Carlos III de Madrid relacionados con sus suscripciones y entradas en Google Plus, se ha decidido investigar un dominio que debido a espacios desiertos  y perfiles incompletos  de unos conocidos se había juzgado injustamente desmotivador.

Cada búsqueda Google revelando unos artículos acompañados de información sobre perfil, impacto y grado de influencia de sus autores en Google plus contribuyendo aún más en su proyección y resonancia internacional es incentivo suficiente como para marcar una diferencia.  En este sentido, Google ha hecho un muy buen trabajo.  Y es exactamente lo que ha dado lugar a la siguiente pregunta: ¿No podría ser esta herramienta un espacio perfecto de promoción y marketing bibliotecario?  Claro que Si!!google

Es indiscutible que muchos no tenemos a veces ni tiempo ni dedicación en profundizar o considerar las repercusiones de nuestro involucramiento en la red, aún más chequear de manera detallada o mejor concebir lo que se implica de permisos que concedamos a fin de disfrutar las ventajas de networking y socialización digital. Además, son numerables los casos en los que nos vemos forzados de inscribirnos en círculos internéticos ¨de moda¨ particulares por motivos de afiliación o promoción de nuestra marca profesional dentro de las coordenadas de una estrategia marketing sin pero tener muchas ganas y aunque plenamente conscientes  de los inconvenientes o retos que afrontaremos a continuación.networks

En muchos casos, no se trata de analfabetismo digital, sino de pasar por alto volens nolens aspectos de máxima importancia que podrían sin embargo luego pesar gravemente sobre reputaciones y prestigios.

La responsabilidad resta entonces compartida y es exactamente en este contexto que se espera de las bibliotecas y centros de información conjuntamente con docentes y community managers programar acciones y reacciones sensibilizando el público y especialmente los jóvenes en el uso más cuidadoso y selectivo de los frutos de Web 2.0.

My simple surface is an agile management utility. It’s like a big white board for quickly and easily organising lots of things. When there’s too much going on, you need space. You need a surface. Move stuff around. Step back. Zoom in. Use  the space.

My simple surface is fast and designed to manage lots of things in a semi-structured environment. Especially when you don’t know half of what you’ve got to do. Capture points quickly onto a surface. Organise, and re-organise later.

Helpful Tips on how to weave aspiring PLNs


Personal Learning Networks, or PLNs, are a universal reality extending from family and friends teachers and students, to worldwide communities like Facebook, blogs, wikis…

Your  PLN can do wonders for your Professional development, Classroom resources and lesson plans and your students skills (Watch the Networked Student Video)

It is in fact a global learning network, enabling you build personal relationships with fellow educators, school administrators and experts from around the world, share resources, learn and collaborate and get feedback on your ideas and projects.  It’s well worth taking time and effort to build it as you’ll soon discover that your PLN is the best professional development you’ll ever have.

At the beginning, the whole process might seem overwhelming. However, creating a PLN, has proved to be the best way to get new teachers on the move.

Start with what you know! Set your goals

Open yourself to the world!

Become an active social-media (Twitter) user by visiting  hashtag.org, choosing from hashtags that connect to your interests and  starting using them. It might seem difficult at first to follow threads of conversation but before giving up, try rethinking your strategy. It’s only a matter of weeks before you’ll be able to train others in social media practices. Remember that educators always look for innovative resources.  Thus sharing quality content, will help make more connections quickly!

Whenever possible start twitter topic discussions

Set a daily routine

 

Take one step at a time.   Read educational blogs and keep on tweeting about your professional discoveries, news, considerations. Get involved in webinar series as participant or presenter.  Share links, ideas, content with other educators and connect to those having a more in depth knowledge about different topics.

Alternatively view webinars (Serendipitiy – FineFocus) post your thoughts about them on your blog, leave comments and  links to your blog posts..

Join educator communities such as EdutopiaClassroom 2.0, and Teacher 2.0 forums that encourage and promote teacher collaboration.  Learn from others, be appreciative and help others learn.
