A Teacher’s Guide to Social Media

There is much talk these days about how to harness the power of Social Media into our education curriculum. The myth that teachers don’t want to use it is just that, as we can see in this infographic the integration of social networks in our classrooms continue to grow and there seems to be no shortage of options for those wanting to embrace the medium.

An interesting aspect in all of this is that Facebook and YouTube seem to be the platforms of choice among educators while the adoption of Pinterest seems to be growing faster that any other network. I would also recommend using Twitter as it provides a live feed of information that is easily categorized through the use of favorites, hashtags and lists you can customize by topic.
