Walker, Andrea
International Association of School Librarianship, Paper presented at the School Library Association of Queensland and the International Association of School Librarianship Conference incorporating the International Forum on Research in School Librarianship (Brisbane, QLD, Australia, Sep 27-Oct 1, 2010)
The purpose of this paper is to describe and demonstrate how social networks such as "Facebook" and "Goodreads", and information and communication technologies (ICTs) tools like laptops and iPods can support and enhance literature circles. The innovation described is implemented by the library and aims to promote reading for all students regardless of their reading ability. The approach seeks to encourage and support language learning through the use of ICT tools and social networks. It aims to stimulate participation and discussion outside the classroom. Literature circle feedback from 7D is appended.
