One of the exciting sessions I have attended is : Twitter for Educators: An Introduction to the Global Collaboration Network by Ashley Cross.
After introducing the importance of social media for global interaction, the presenter explained some important concepts / terms related to social media terminology. The presentation gave practical tips to introduce educators to the use of tweeter in education: how to tweet/ follow/ create a hashtag through easy instructions and screenshots…
I benefited from the useful links suggested by the presenter and enjoyed interacting with her and with other attendees in the chat . I am planning to put the ideas I noted into practice since social media are not only a space for collaboration and interaction, but also a rich , free and up-to-date educational resource.
