Virtual Professional Learning Conference
August 29th – 31st, 9am – 12pm (Eastern)
Social media is a powerful tool, enabling users to form connections across geographical boundaries, share their experiences, participate in communities, and both create and consume multimodal content. The vast majority of youth engage with social media on a regular basis despite prevailing concerns about its potential impact on physical and mental well-being. Clearly social media is here to stay, so let’s flip the narrative!
How can educators leverage these powerful platforms in their classrooms, and promote positive and responsible use of social media for their students?
Join us for Posting with Purpose: Social Media and the Classroom, a three-day professional learning conference designed to explore the perils and promises of social media for education. Topics include:
- How does social media work?
- What platforms exist, and how are they used?
- What are the potential — positive and negative — impacts?
- Developing digital citizenship
- Digital activism
- Youth leadership in social media
- Classroom applications
- … and more!
