Social media and Web 2.0: Teacher-librarians, risk and inequity

In this article I examine the perceptions of social media and Web 2.0 that influence the pedagogical practices of teacher-librarians. I argue that for many teacher-librarians, use of social media is seen as risky. This perception is exacerbated by the blocking of a range of social media, Web 2.0 and cloud computing tools by Australian state education departments. I show that teacher-librarians in some private schools are not subject to the same blocking practices and thus have more expansive views on the pedagogical affordances of social media and Web 2.0.
