7 Razones Por Que los Educadores Tienen Que USAR vereda Los Medios Sociales:

EDCI397 emphasizes the need for teachers to develop their PLN, and this blog post demonstrates the positive impact these connections can have on the classroom as a whole. Teachers who become connected through social media, such as Twitter or Pinterest, can gain the tools they need to better engage their students. Although I was initially reluctant to use Twitter and other social media as an educational tool, the collaborative opportunities and the chance to help students and their parents connect with the classroom and the world around them made me realize how essential the use of social media in the classroom can be.

On recommendation from Mrs. Akin, we have tried this app and love it! You can create custom quizzes and download class data, much like you can with a CPS system. Check it out and see how you like it! There are quizzes already created by other teachers that you can try or you can create your own.
