Why would you consider bringing social media into class?
Wednesday, February 5, 2020 · Noon - 1:30 PM
You finally got your students to put down their smartphones, so why would you even consider bringing social media into your classroom? While some teachers see social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, and Snapchat as learning distractions and potential timewasters, others are using them to engage students and develop their skills. In this panel presentation, UMBC faculty and staff share lessons learned about integrating social media tools into their courses—what worked, what didn’t, and how to assess student learning. Consider how colleagues use blogs, wikis, and other tools to scaffold and organize group projects. Panelists include Kate Drabinski (Gender, Women’s + Sexuality Studies), Donald Snyder (Media and Communication Studies), Jess Myers (Women’s Center) and Sarah Sharp (Visual Arts).
