Education Social Media

Social media is about reaching out to students and is not a substitute for the LMS or other forms of communication.  One of the important messages of the first session on social media is that any adoption of social media must start with an objective and a plan.  Backward design is important in implementing a social media strategy, otherwise implementation can become messy and chaotic.
