#Community Connect: Using Social Media in Your Classroom

March 20, 2014
Please join us this Thursday (20th March) at 8pm (GMT+11 Sydney time – please use the timezone converter to check when it will be for your timezone) as we go through the endless possibilities of using Social media tools in our classroom to enhance our teaching and students’ learning outcomes.
This session will focus on ‘how we can use social media‘ rather than what tools we can use. If you already use social media in your classroom, bring your ideas to share with others and if you are interested in integrating it into your classroom, this session will hopefully provide you with ideas on how to get started. The session will be led by Shingo Gibson-Suzuki, a Japanese teacher, eLearning coach at Taylors Lakes Secondary College, as well as an online webinar facilitator.
We will have a few of my past students joining us for the session to share their thoughts on using social media tools in the classroom. You will have a chance to ask them questions regarding the benefits.
Please share this exciting session with your colleagues at your school.
FOR: Primary, Secondary (Classroom teachers and school leaders), and Tertiary teachers,
WHAT: Using Social Media in your classroom
WHEN: Thursday, 20th March, 8pm Sydney time (GMT+11)
