Fifteen-year-old Adora Svitak knows students nowadays “live, work and play” social media.

“We’re used to the characteristics of social media: participation, connection, instant gratification,” she tells Mashable, “and when school doesn’t offer the same, it’s easy to tune out.”

To help more educators learn about the benefits of using social media in the classroom, Adora recently taught nearly 3,000 teachers, principals and administrators how to implement Twitter and Facebook into their lives.

Universities and Social Media | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it
