Does the thought of social media make you a little scared? It can be a crazy highway that you’re not sure how to get on to. However, social media is a great way to connect with fellow educators from all over the world, so why not try to merge onto that highway and see what’s out there! In this workshop, you will explore some social media sites such as Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, and YouTube, and learn how these resources are amazing for building your own professional learning. You will also be introduced to Hoot Suite, which will bring all of your social media feeds into one place, so you don’t have to go searching for them. Social bookmarking will also be introduced so that you can easily keep track of all your favorite websites. (K-12)
