Thank you to the 300+ folks from around the world who joined me for the Common Sense Media Digital Citizenship webinar on EdWeb. In case you missed it, the webinar was called “Social Media: An Essential Tool for Today’s Classroom.” In the webinar, I shared case studies of amazing students, parents, and teachers.

Goal: Give Peace a Chance

Teacher Reboot Camp

Students can also create and spread messages of peace through social media via a graphic, digital poster , or video. One of my favorite kids on social media is Kid President who spreads encouraging messages for other young learners to be awesome and make a positive impact on the world.

What to do with a good old wiki resource?

Bryan Alexander

Consider this a case study in evolving social media. Maybe because Twitter and Facebook took up some of our desire to jot down short observations from life. I asked around social media for feedback.

Edsurge

In the case of Baltimore County Public Schools (BCPS) , when the district began a huge leap to personalized learning, its leaders consciously began designing a communications strategy to bring together students, teachers and families.
