Join me this evening at 4pm Eastern Time and hear me discuss why social media is an essential tool for K-12 classrooms.
While there are some educators who feel the best advice when it comes to social media is to stay away, I disagree. In fact, I tell teachers that if they’re not preparing students to use social media effectively, they're not doing their job.
Because, the role of today’s educator is to prepare students to thrive in the world in which they live. In today’s world, if you want to run a business, run for office, or change the way things are run where you live, play, or work, you must be savvy in the use of social media. If we do not ensure our kids are equipped to do so responsibly and effectively, we are robbing them of the real and relevant education they deserve.
In tonight’s webinar, I share how educators are using social media such as Facebook and Twitter both as powerful tools for professional development as well as how to use them as a vehicle for student learning.
I’ll share how one teacher uses Facebook with first graders to strengthen the home school connection, and how another uses Twitter with second graders to increase tourism in their community. You’ll also discover how schools are using social media to share the stories of their classroom with the world and even use it as tool to increase enrollment.
I hope you’ll join me today to get some great ideas on how to use social media for teaching and learning in your school or district.
