Hi folks.  Pippa Davies from HCOS, teacher librarian and chair of learning commons.  Happy to glean from you all and share when I can.  Love social media and PLN's.

Hey EdTech minded educators!  I co-created an app called Baton that provides a more intelligent/strategic participation tool than traditional hand raising. It allows for real personalization of learning and class flow! Sounds crazy, I know ;)  Check it out here: batonmobile.com

Librarians are all about access. Here is a link to  librarian tips for ensuring access to open source content created for online instruction.

BTW NIH Librarians led the way to OER:
In May 2006, the US Federal Research Public Access Act (FRPAA)[37] was proposed toward improving the NIH Public Access Policy.[38] Besides points about making open access mandatory, to which the NIH complied in 2008, it argues to extend self-archiving to the full spectrum of major US-funded research.

All be it the paper is not yet peer reviewed, but, if the predictions are in the ball park, how does that impact on our use of social media in education?
