Once taboo in schools, the use of social media has become essential, providing schools with opportunities for outreach, advocacy and more. Today it’s often the responsibility of librarians to model the proper use of social media for students. Connected Librarians: Tap Social Media to Enhance Professional Development and Student Learning offers insights into the possibilities and obstacles of this exciting but sometimes challenging topic, including practical ideas for making the most of social media in your school library. This informative guide is the professional development tool librarians need to understand how to effectively use social media to improve student learning.


This book will:

  • Demonstrate how to model responsible social media use to manage issues of privacy and anonymity within social media sites and apps.
  • Share advice on securing buy-in from school administration and parents for using social media with the school.
  • Show how to leverage social media tools to encourage reading and writing through interactive displays, scavenger hunts, fan fiction and more.
  • Demonstrate how to use social media as a powerful tool to build your own professional learning network.
