I think a lot about technology and social media so when I came across this post on integrating social media into the classroom, I thought I'd share it with all you educators out there. It is a compliation of fantastic resources; articles on the basics, illustrative videos, web 2.0 tools and dozens of blogs and educators to follow on twitter. I'd seen the Vision of Students Today video from Michel Wesch before and am always impressed with his anthropological work, especially his presentation to the Library of Congress on YouTube.
We, over here in the public library, are always interested in knowing how technology is being used in the classroom here in Darien. Perhaps some collaboration between us could happen in the future? Teachers, how could we help you? I invite you to comment here or email me with ideas (firstname.lastname@example.org).
