In this webinar, you will learn:

With the growing ubiquity of social media there has been no other time in history when so many people have so easily shared so much with so many. This has created a distinct shift in our social landscape as it redefines how educators communicate and choose to connect with others in our field. As this inevitable merger between our physical and digital lives progresses, various challenges become apparent. One of these is the friction between the fear of the hidden dangers of social media and the desire to leverage these tools for our learners.

In this session, we’ll look at the current climate of social media, how it relates to us as educators, how to develop a social media policy/philosophy and the strengths and limitations of such tools as, Twitter, Vine, Line, Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook and more.
