  • What does social media bring to the lives of our students?
  • Empowers them to grow as global and digital citizens
  • Enriches their learning experiences by connecting
    with individuals, groups, and experiences around the world
  • And gives them a purpose and powerful audience that brings incredible value
    to their learning.

  • Why use social media with students? Lets hear from them.
  • As you can see, social media gives students endless opportunities to connect, collaborate and create with others around the world.
  • It gives students a place toconnect to their passions, practice personal responsibility and to be leaders in education.
  • Social media gives them a VOICE.
  • It can give you a VOICE to be a change in education too.
