Lucy Harper of Edudemic suggests 4 ways that social media can be incorporated into the classroom. If your school does not have social media restrictions, perhaps one of these tips can help connect students and families in a new way.
- Facebook Classroom Page – post homework assignments for students and parents to see, and build a community feel around your classroom.
- Twitter for Reminders – announce short reminders after the day is done, build communication with families.
- Show and Tell with Pinterest – with family permission, use boards to share class activities and ideas.
- Blogging in the Classroom – have students practice sharing their thoughts and writing
