Is there any escaping social media in today’s society? Especially in education, we hear a great amount about the harm and dangers of social media for our students. This course will help teachers move past the negative aspects of social media and allow for a focus on using social media in the classroom to help motivate students to learn. Teachers will examine how they can utilize tools such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to modernize their lessons. Teachers will also research and implement methods for using social media as a motivator in the classroom to keep students engaged in the learning experience.
