Social Media

  1. 1. Social Media For Educators March 26, 2010 Kevin Murphy
  2. 2. Useful Tools • Wiki: The wiki interface is very simple to use and I have had the opportunity to us it with my students with great success. Provides excellent security for a free program. • Twitter: Going into this course I was most hesitant using twitter but I actually love it. The ability to get relevant information from informed educators is very useful as a teacher. • Delicious: I really enjoy the organization of this social book marking site and it really allows for easy presentation of websites with my students.
  3. 3. Challenges • Ning: I had some challenges developing my Ning page to be a successful forum for educators. Personally I like the interface and believe it provides great potential for educators. I just had a difficult time organizing my thoughts through my Ning page.
  4. 4. Moodle • I really liked using Moodle for the online learning. I have used Blackboard for online courses and actually preferred using Moodle. It was well organized and easy to navigate. • I really like how every link I needed was on the main page, as opposed to entering 2-3 pages before finding the link I need.
