Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Oh My! What is it? How do I use it? Should it be used in the classroom? Social media is as much as part of today's society as the television. The main question is do these social media tools belong in the classroom? In this presentation, I will discuss how using social media as an educational tool can be beneficial to the instructor and the students. I teach the “right” way to use these tools while allowing students additional ways to interact with me and their classmates. What are your thoughts and concerns of using these new mediums in the classroom? Is it ethical? Do you feel we are evading students' “personal space”? I'll explain and demonstrate how I use popular social media tools in my classes and open the room to discussion on whether or not we should allow them into our classroom.
