  3. 3. Participants will be shown how to use social media like Skype, YouTube, blogs and Twitter to get in contact with students and teachers from other parts of the world. Students communicate and learn from peers in the outside world using social media and teachers introduce new material to the students on personal blogs using authentic material like videos from Youtube and TED. Curriculum goals are the basis for learning, not textbooks, and students find how different topics can be used to cover the curriculum goals. Questions and challenges are set by the students with help from teachers. Students offer feedback to fellow students. The goal is self-paced differentiated learning where every student can progress individually and the teacher can keep track of this. We explore how it is possible to use digital age learning in an authentic real-world practice, modeling real-world problems. USING SOCIAL MEDIA TO CONNECT EDUCATORS, STUDENTS AND EXPERTS WORLDWIDE
