One of the Childrens_Room twitter friends, cwkids, passed along a great webpage from their twitter friend web20classroom. The webpage is 85+ Resources: Educator Guide for Integrating Social Media. The webpage gives articles, videos and links about the importance of social media along with social media tools and resources. The webpage author created the page as "a good starting point" and "by no means exhaustive." They hope to continue to update the website with additional information and resources.
You can also find resources at Menasha Public Library by going to our online catalog. Type in "Web 2.0" or "Online social networks" under subject search or even specific networks like "Twitter" or "Facebook" under keyword search.
