Ideas for Teaching About Social Media

On Feb 4, the AML presented a session at #OTFOADE "Social Media and Teacher Learning" conference. We had such a positive response and so many wonderful questions that we ran out of time to finish our presentation. I have assembled some of the slides into a PDF for anyone who would like to use them. We spoke about the difference between teaching THROUGH Social Media and teaching ABOUT Social Media. It's an important distinction. Participants asked for some ideas on how to teach about Social Media. One entry point is the Social Media Triangle, which can help begin a discussion about social media.

Below, you will find some assignment ideas that will (hopefully) inspire you to teach your students about Social Media!
