After a meeting with colleague teacher librarians this week, I decided to create a facebook fan page for the library. After an initial sneak peak for my boss and the IT manager, we launched it on the school portal initially for staff and then opened it up to students on Friday.
This is an attempt to engage with the students but we will maintain the page so that is current, informative and fun. Several of the creative faculties already use facebook fan pages to communicate with students.
Welcome to the olmc library. Reviews, booktrailers, great links and more from olmclibrary
Go to discussions for book reviews and links we like.
Tricia and I feel that we will use this as our main medium of communication with the girls and as a tool to showcase our web 2.0 projects such as booktrailers and book blogs.
I was inspired to set up the facebook site to see if as educators we can communicate through our students choice of social media.
