Many educational leaders are talking about the use of technology in schools, specifically the use of social media. It's been a "hot" topic for years. I began teaching at the college level 10 years ago and have been using it in each of my classes. I figured that if I expected my students to use it in their classrooms, I should model the effective use of social media in "my" classroom. It wasn't until recently when I began teaching a "Social Media in the Classroom" course that I realized that most of the teachers and/or pre-service teachers in my classes haven't been exposed to the effective use of these technologies in their other college level education classes. Why? This is the beginning of a new adventure for me. I'm refining my social presence with the vision of modeling effective use of social media in graduate and undergraduate level teacher education courses.
