How Social Media & Game Mechanics Can Motivate Students

Social media and online games have the potential to convey 21st century skills that aren’t necessarily part of school curricula — things like time management, leadership, teamwork and creative problem solving that will prepare teens for success in college and beyond.

[See article http://mashable.com/2011/05/26/social-media-games-education/ for descriptions of:]
• The Status Update and Checkins
• Leaderboards
• Leveling Up

Living Ferguson: Edtech ' s Role in Social Justice

Thank you for having me. It is a honor to be on the stage with all of these
