6 Alternative Social Media Tools for Teaching and Learning -- Campus Technology

6 Alternative Social Media Tools for Teaching and Learning -- Campus Technology | Educational Use of Social Media | Scoop.it

by Leila Meyer: Putting concepts in context. Sarah Smith-Robbins, director of learning technologies and a marketing instructor in the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University, thinks social media can help take learning out of the classroom. "I want students to see the concepts that we're talking about in class not just as things that are important when we're in class, but as things that are important in their lives," she said. "Because these tools live in their pockets and I can give them reasons to be on the lookout for content to curate for the course, it helps them think through the application of the concepts from class."
