Social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and blogs have transformed communication in our era, and many educators believe they can help deepen and bring new relevancy to student learning in the 21st century. But how are they best integrated with curriculum and instruction? How can teachers use them to create meaningful lessons as opposed to gimmicky diversions? What does a "socially networked classroom" (and school) really look like? In this webinar, two experts on the use of digital technology in instruction will answers these questions and offer practical tips using social media to create thriving collaborative-learning environments.
