ISTE 2013: Leading the Way with Social Media

  • Educators agree that banning social media in schools is ultimately detrimental to the students.
  • Both students and parents are beginning to expect to receive communications on social networks. This is not a trend that schools can ignore for long.
  • Social media isn't just about students. Teachers and administrators can leverage the medium to share ideas.

Participants: Adam Bellow, eduClipper; Kevin Honeycutt, KevinHoneycutt.org; Dr. Ann Flynn, National School Boards Association; Joanna Antoniou; Elaine Plybon; Nicholas Provenzano
