Learning Communities/Networks: Harnessing Social Media to Create Social Capital

Kentucky Innovations Conference

Community plays an important role in learning and social capital is key for both students and educators. There are many tools available to form and foster community. This session will introduce educators to four social media tools (Twitter, Google, Facebook, Edmodo) which they can use to create their own personal learning networks as well as support classroom learning. We will share our use of these tools for learning and teaching as well as provide opportunities for session participants to engage with the technology on their own devices.
