The webinar was entitled Social Media Savvy for Educators. Its purpose was to support educators, who might be new to using social media, to seek out resources and then launch into those spaces that could be supportive to them.
In this webinar we shared ways to tap into the power of social media to increase professional effectiveness, student engagement and parent participation! K-12 educators and leaders, participated with us to learn how to integrate Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Edublogs, Google Hangout and more into their everyday work.
I invite you to check out the slideshare and social media resource links below to get a feel for what we presented. Then consider if there are any new insights or take-aways that you can use to support your practice.
