Participants will explore the use of social media as a way to engage students in a participatory culture. These participatory cultures are relatively known as Affinity Spaces. The presenter will demonstrate ways to create a virtual jigsaw as a method to analyze and summarize narrative materials. The focus for this mini session is to learn how to use a back channel as a method to deep read large amounts of materials in less time with greater participant comprehension and involvement. At the end of the session participants will have learned how to setup a simulated social network using "Today's Meet" and "Google Forms"
