Social Media Review
“Online technologies and practices that people use to share opinions,
insights, experiences, and perspectives with each other.”
“Social media are works of user-created video, audio, text or multimedia
that are published and shared in a social environment, such as a blog,
wiki or video hosting site.”
Take charge of your own professional development and model learning for
colleagues and students.
By developing a PLN, you can investigate best practices and target your
needs and interests. Anytime, anywhere.
You’ll be able to ﬁnd opportunities for global collaboration.
Our students are networking and we need to understand the spaces
created by social media as well as how to engage kids.
We need to see ourselves as curators and creators of content.
