Social Media and its Use in Education
Transcript of Social Media and its Use in Education
There are many different blog platforms
Blogging can help students form critical opinions on topics discussed during class.
Students can make journal entries, respond to readings and see and track their writing development in a sequential view
Social Media are computer mediated tools that allow people to create, share, or exchange information, ideas, and pictures.
What is Educational Technology?
Educational technology can be defined as a number of factors.
Wikipedia defines educational technology as "as a design science or a collection of different research interest addressing fundamental issues of learning, teaching, and social organization.
Twitter in the classroom can be of much value. Teachers can create interactive hashtags or trending topics that the students can use.
Students can also "tweet" their classmates between discussions to help build critical thinking.
