Teaching Teachers: Implementing Social Media in the Classroom & Curriculum
Teachers can have students use Tumblr to blog about authors, texts, research topics, projects etc.
Teachers can use Twitter to teach students how to propagate

Tumblr- Let`s make words speak LOUDER!
Twitter- Helping students get to the real point!
Facebook- used to connect people for good! (students & teachers).


Proper and appropriate media usage by students
through teachers in classroom lessons.

2) Inappropriate Behavior
3) Anonymity
by Philip Larkin
Suspended lion face
Spilling at the centre
Of an unfurnished sky
How still you stand,
And how unaided
Single stalkless flower
You pour unrecompensed.

The eye sees you
Simplified by distance
Into an origin,
Your petalled head of flames
Continuously exploding.
Heat is the echo of your

Coined there among
Lonely horizontals
You exist openly.
Our needs hourly
Climb and return like angels.
Unclosing like a hand,
You give for ever.

Personal Profile- Teachers can help students take out their dirty laundry by bringing in fresh ideas.
-Educational Usages: FAKEBOOK for book,historical characters, make pages for advertisement projects & form groups for group work. Statuses can be updated to quotes, new words, fun facts etc.
Students can communicate and propagate world news, opinions, sports schedules etc.
Instagram- Because many students of the 21st century are visual learners.
Instagram should be used to promote a different sort of self esteem:
Artwork, Pic Poetry, time lines, our World etc.

Teachers can help promote ``selfies`` (student work) and get rid of Selfies....

Shakespeare Forever Blog- quotes, plays, posters, videos, commentaries etc.

Where this information was taken from:
Teachers can utilize the interest that students have in social media in order to engage students in class material and exchange ideas.
Students can use social media in order to share information with each other and promote understanding.
Encourage the students to ask questions when using social media, some students may feel more comfortable speaking their mind online rather than in front of a classroom.
It is also important to educate students on the appropriate use of social media and starting in class can help students understand much more efficiently thanks to proper instruction.
Waterloo Community School District:
Edmodo can be incorporated into classrooms through a variety of applications including Reading, Assignments, and Paper-studying. Current uses include posting assignments, creating polls for student responses, embedding video clips, create learning groups, post a quiz for students to take, and create a calendar of events and assignments
Students can also turn in assignments or upload assignments for their teachers to view and grade. Teachers can annotate the assignments directly in Edmodo to provide instant feedback.
Parents can also view this website, either under their child's username or they may create their own account. The Parent accounts allow parents to see their children's assignments and grades.
Teachers, subject to creating and maintaining parental records, could send alerts to parents about school events, missed assignments, and other important messages
- 41 suicides in North America linked to cyberbullying from 2003-2012
-explicit photos
When a student can hide behind a "screen name" or a pseudonym that doesn't represent their identity, there's a loss of accountability and suddenly the student is free to express whatever they'd like without consequences for themselves
A student can then
and become dangerous

Facilitator's Guide:

The need for communicating social media in the classroom is beginning to be more prevalent in this day and age for the current and rising generations.

Workshops are a fun, easy and informative way to "teach" teachers how to use the social media their students are engaged with, as well as break the stereotype of social media being "dangerous" and "bad," showing it can be used for good and educational purposes.
