Course Description: There are many times educators face deficits in personalized professional development. Social media networks are vital to being a "networked" educator for the 21st Century! Utilizing social sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and LinkedIn can help you connect with other educators and gain valuable information. Educators connect through creating and expanding their Professional Learning Network (PLN) for unique professional development experience! The concept of being networked, and maintaining digital leadership creates many connections and collaboration among educators. Teachers tend to be members of all the big social media platforms Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest - but now what? Connect with the movers and shakers in education, learn from them and practice utilizing these individuals as a resource. The purpose of a
social media-based PLN is to extend your reach beyond the narrow confines of the bubble you live in. It is vital to connect, know your voice, know your message and learn techniques to be a conversationalist with other educators.
