PCI Webinar with Paul Signorelli
Using Social Media Tools to Facilitate Learning in Libraries
If you haven’t explored Twitter, Facebook, and other social media tools, you may have the impression that they are good for little more than posting pictures of food and kittens. If you’re ready to move beyond those subjects, you’ll find that social media tools can also be tremendous resources for trainer-teacher-learners and those they serve.
Join us for this one-hour interactive webinar to learn how you can use live sessions via Twitter to engage learners, Facebook private discussion for online office hours, and Skype and Google+ Hangouts to change the way we envision “face-to-face” learning.
Participants, by the time they leave the session, will:
- Be able to demonstrate familiarity with the ways that social media tools are used to deliver and support learning opportunities for library staff members, library users, and others
- Identify at least three ways that online learning can serve library staff and users
- Have at least two ideas that they can explore for their library learning programs
