Venue: Online Webcast
|Event Date/Time: Apr 25, 2011|
Social media tools, such as Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, are changing the way that students and faculty communicate, share ideas, and build networks. The interest in social media is quickly increasing, and as with many other technologies, the educational community is looking to harness the potential of these resources to improve teaching and learning. While social media is popular, educators need to better understand how to use it to improve student learning, while being mindful of privacy concerns.
Join us online as we showcase some effective uses of social media in student learning. We'll discuss ways to use social media to create experiential learning activities, improve student interactivity and engagement, and develop community and professional networks.

Faculty, instructional designers and technologists, academic computing services, and student computing services administrators will learn to use social media tools effectively.
