Session Title: Education and Social Media in the Classroom
This presentation will offer the attendee to learn about the effective use of Social Media Platforms and apps in the classroom. The workshop will be geared for the beginner user. I will share assignments and my experiences with different social media platforms/assignments in various courses that I’ve taught at UVIC. This presentation will be useful to others outside of education.
