Using Memes in Education: Library Orientation

This year, I decided to use memes in the freshmen orientation for two reasons: 1. kids can relate to these (since they use and make them all the time themselves) and 2. let students know the library is more than rules, guidelines, and shushing. It can be fun, imaginative, creative, and inviting. I did a test drive with our new teachers for new teacher orientation, and although it was unexpected, they thoroughly enjoyed it! :) Basically, it's all about relationships, and this is a fun way to do it. Most of the memes I created myself using imgflip.com SUPER easy!!

This is a great idea. But which particular Meme did you use? Are you willing to share?

I am also a high school librarian. I've been wanting to do something different with library orientation. I am very curious about what you discussed with each slide. I may have to do something like this next year!

Thanks for sharing. Do you mind if I borrow a few of your memes? I've got freshmen coming in on Friday.
