Using Social Media in the Classroom

Like Key & Peele‘s “Teaching Center” reminds us, teachers do make a difference.  Sure, we do not make $80 million a year and when we transfer roles, schools, or districts, it does not garner such media attention, but we are extremely valuable…as are parents and community leaders in the lives of students.

As one of my new responsibilities (which I will more formally announce later with the full redesign of this blog), I had the opportunity to present on the use of Social Media in the classroom at my county’s Professional Learning Day for English Language Arts and Social Studies teachers.  I was so grateful to work with so many adventurous educators, looking to work beyond Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Edmodo to propel their work in the classroom.

Here is the introductory PowToon slides presentation I used:

Here is the handout from the presentation:

Continue to stay tuned for the upcoming changes here on my blog!  I cannot wait to show all of you what is to come!
