Social Media in schools can be a scary thing for a lot of teachers. Especially for upcoming teachers because we have already seen some disastrous bullying, circulation of naked photos and humiliation of teachers.
However, to easily connect with students an example would be:
Tweet: “Hello @ART305 don’t forget about the drawing assignment due tomorrow!”
Instagram: Post of photo of some of the kids’ artwork!
Facebook: Set up a student group chat to help brainstorming outside of the classroom.
Valerie came in today to speak to our class and it felt as though everything went over my head. I thought I had some sort of skills when it comes to technology but holy moly….
I’ll need to practice in order to keep up with my students!
