Courtney Calhoun's curator insight, June 26, 3:36 PM

This blog post gives insight on how teachers can use social media to their advantage and some direct quotes from educators about social media. I love using social media, but haven't expanded to using it in my line of work very much. My goal this year is to keep Twitter going and learn more about education through social media.

All things in eModeration: Moderating Class Blogs and Facebook Student Groups

All things in eModeration: Moderating Class Blogs and Facebook Student Groups | Using Social Media in the Classroom | Scoop.it

Moderation involves students’ participation to online communities and this is something that only you can encourage no matter how powerful a tool is. If participation is optional not all students are likely to contribute. On the other hand, if it is mandatory or marked it might feel like another task that needs to be done. It would be better to integrate it into your course so that students perceive it as an essential part of their learning. For example, you might start a discussion in class that could be continued online; or instead of asking them to write an essay, you could post a relevant video, ask them to discuss it with classmates online and then write something on this.
