Helping students get more out of social media
Educators need to show students how to make social media work for them, writes tech integration specialist Andrew Marcinek on Edutopia's blog. Instead of having students connect to various networks, teachers should encourage students to be active members in their networks, Marcinek says. That means having students go beyond re-tweeting information and promote debate online, as well as accept constructive criticism.
