Are you connected on social media? Curious about how to use social media in your class? I presented on social media in education at the Afternoon of Learning in the CTLE/Creating Connections.The presentation covered how you can utilize social media to help you connect with colleagues and engage your students. According to a study released in October by Pearson Learning Solutions and the Babson Survey Research Group, many faculty are already taking the plunge into social media. “The survey of over 8,000 faculty found that 41% of college professors use social media as a teaching tool, up from around 34% in 2012.”
Below is a preview of a similar presentation I’m doing today at Gateway. There are so great links for social media resources and quick overview of what social media is. Take a look and plan to join us on Thursday for a day of learning and connecting.
