"Schools need to think how powerful it could be as a learning tool [social media] to bring that engagement outside the classroom into the classroom…you insert a simple tool that allows students to connect with each other or their peers in other schools and countries whenever they want, you just see kids faces light up. Thats what we saw in a class where our kids were talking to students in Iowa." Chris Lehmann, principal of the Science Leadership Academy (SLA) in Philadelphiahttp://www.technewsdaily.com/teachers-embracing-social-media-in-the-classroom-0509/
