SMILE - Social Media in Learning and Education Handbook

SMILE - Social Media in Learning and Education Handbook | Technology  - or not - in the English classroom |

More than 100 teachers from across Europe participated in the SMILE (Social Media in Learning and Education) action and undertook a pedagogical journey to explore jointly the challenges and opportunities involved when using social media in learning and education.
The outcomes of the project, funded by a Digital Citizenship Research Grant from Facebook, are now published in a digital handbook. You can find pedagogical materials and resources from the learning laboratory with many valuable reflections and suggestions on some critical aspects of the use of social media as regards school policies, pedagogical principles, professional development, responsible use and challenges to adoption.

12. Any innovation in education deserves to be heard even if it’s just to start the conversation. This example shows the use of facebook being used in education. Interesting to see the comment of the teacher regarding the enthusiasm of the students.

Free Apps to Capture, Create and Connect to the Common Core | Technology  - or not - in the English classroom |

"In the Digital Classroom, teachers have many opportunities to design flexible and engaging student-driven learning experiences that allow them to create. Adopting this style of teaching and learning can be overwhelming, especially when being expected to embrace new technology and also implement the Common Core Standards at the same time."
