  14. 14. “…….social media tools should 100% be in the class room. I always wonder why we don’t give kids more technology because most of us use it every single day of the week in work. The earlier they get their hands on it the better!”<br />“The best teacher is still a human but technology enhances many aspect of teaching and learning.” <br />“I am from the school of thought that if you can engage students with their “speak” – and social media is definitely their “speak” – you can capture their attention and begin to open the doors to listening and learning.”<br />“I believe that much of the backlash against social media in the classroom comes from stereotypical misunderstanding of what social media is. It’s use as a curriculum delivery mechanism is unparalleled. Our small project in Portland Oregon has seen some great results from over and under achievers alike.”<br /><br />

  18. 18. “This isn’t new, this desire to share. We’re just documenting our lives in different ways. Instead of diaries or scrapbooks or photo albums, we post pictures and blog and tweet. <br />Social media is the modern version of cave paintings. The key difference is the scalability. Unlike the physical and geographic limitations of scrapbooks and caves, anyone anywhere can hop online. In fact, that’s the point. The more friends, followers, readers, the better. <br />That’s how social media works.<br />The town square never shuts down in 2011.”<br />Mia Freedman,<br />An observation<br />
