In this presentation, I discuss some of the problematics around contemporary teacher education posed by various constraints--time, $, personnel, physical space--and consider how social media, as a form of disruptive innovation, might help redress these constraints in ways that open up new spaces that might be conducive to teacher learning.

I report on the lessons learned from a case study on engaging preservice teachers in using social media to develop their pedagogy in practicing contemporary classroom assessment in an integrated fashion. Using these findings to spring-board the discussion, I offered what emerged to be two particular dilemma facing those trying to engage teachers in professional learning using social media: 1) legitimizing social media to those involved in the learning process, and 2) (re)considering what concrete strategies might help promote teacher learning over social media.

This presentation was given at the Ontario Teacher Federation/Ontario Association of Deans in Education 2012 Conference, Faculty of Education, UOIT, on February, 4, 2012.
