Thanks so much to Rebecca Johnson, Director of Instructional Technologies and New Pedagogies at eTech for her workshop, “Using Social Media in the Classroom” last week. She gave a great presentation and started an interesting discussion with participants about the pros and cons of various approaches to social media for pedagogy. We appreciate her contribution to the workshop effort. Her presentation slides and resources can be found here.
