The prevalence and widespread use of social media tools make possible a seemingly endless array of ways to share ideas and build new knowledge. During this keynote presentation on March 29, 2013 at Western Illinois University Symposium on Teaching, Research, and Creative Activities by Jason Rhode, we considered how students today are using social media in their daily lives and explore together how social media can be used to actively engage students in the learning process, both in and outside the classroom. A social teaching framework was shared as well as principles and best practices for leveraging social media in teaching and learning. Participants were encouraged to bring their own device to actively participate in the conversation!

Online and mobile versions of the handout accompanying the slides is available at http://j.mp/socialteaching

Session hashtag, for tweeting or other social media uses: #socialteaching
