Social Media in Education: National Rural Education Congress
( originally posted on ICTology, imported in September/15)
On March 28 we presented at the National Congress on Rural Education, held is Saskatoon, SK. Our session looked at social media & education. We started by asking "What is Social Media?" and proceeded to why use it, then into our journey & experiments at BU. After this we transitioned to ask; What about in K-12, and tried to give reasons to use social media and gave several examples of real classrooms and schools who make positive use of social media for learning.
One of the highlights of the conference was the student Journalists who produced video and print reports of the conference.
