Hello NY DEN Members!
A new web 2.0/social networking application has arrived and you need to head on over to Shelfari to check it out!
Shelfari is a social media site focused around books, and will continue to innovate as it brings together the world’s readers. There are many teachers who have migrated to the site. Feel free to network with the teachers who have similar interests as you in groups like Educational Technology or Great Books for Teachers. Or, if you please, you can start your own groups.
According to the website, Shelfari’s members:
- Build virtual bookshelves to express themselves to their friends and to the world
- Discover books that are popular in their trusted circles of friends
- Influence peers by rating and discussing books online
- Discover and learn from people with similar reading tastes
- Participate in online book groups to further explore literature and share ideas
- Interact with and learn from authors
This is my bookshelf:
