FACEBOOK & TWITTER WORKSHOP
Today more than one billion people use Facebook, and more than 500 million use Twitter to connect, share and interact with one another. In this workshop, we will explore how we can use Facebook and Twitter to facilitate learning and teaching.
During the hands-on activities, we will learn how to create Facebook Groups to engage students and conduct assignments, and create unique Twitter #hashtags to empower dedicated streams for sharing and learning. Finally, we will explore several Twitter apps to engage students in the classroom and beyond.
