Course Description

More than ever educators need to understand and model the use of new media tools for their scholars, but how can you do this with all the other initiatives and instruction that you do?  How does an educator continue to connect and grow beyond their own classroom?  That’s what this course is designed to help with.

Over the course will participate in very manageable modules that will allow educators to easily build their knowledge of these tools.

 Audience: All educators prek-12

Course Goals

Participants will learn the how and why to use social media for education. Throughout the course, they will be guided through modules which assist them in developing their social media presence through an educator’s lens while understanding the benefits of developing a PLN through social media.
