What is School? Social Media in the Classroom

This week Craig is joined by the ever amazing Mark Weston and they will be leading a discussion on Social Media in the Classroom. It is always an honour to have Mark join us!

Being engaged and connected through Social Media is the norm for our students and as educators we must respect and engage them in this forum. This week at#whatisschool we open up the discussion and ask “Can Social Media have a role to play in managing a successful classroom?”
