Curriculum Leadership Journal | Schools and social media

The social media covers a wide range of applications including blogging, wikis, online forums, Twitter and Facebook. Most forms of social media are free and are easy to use. By 2009 Australians had become the world's greatest consumers of social media, according to the Nielsen 2010 Social Media Report, but so far schools have been reluctant to participate in this trend. This article explores some of the ways in which schools might use the social media, and the benefits they could bring.

Curriculum Leadership Journal | Applying social media in schools

Social media technologies allow us to easily create web content to share with others, often on a mass scale, but also in a local context. The rise of social media has brought significant changes to the way people do business, socialise, obtain information and perform everyday tasks, and many educators are exploring the possibilities that the social media can offer for students, teachers and schools. In this article I describe some of these possibilities, based on my own experiences as a secondary teacher.
