17. Social Media Strategy Plan – Day 2

Housekeeping
Long time no see. How have you been? 🙂

PART I. Exploring your resources
Let’s spend a few minutes talking about the resources you found for your social media identity plan. Please meet your classmates who share common interests (same target learner grade level or subject area).

Do you have difficulties finding any good resources for your social media strategy plan? If yes, try this site, Ed Social Media! It provides many interesting articles regarding specific social media, such as Google+ (e.g., Google+: First Thoughts and …), Twitter(e.g., Twitter for Educators…) or general issues (e.g., Why social media in school?).

PART II. Social Media in Classroom
How are social media used in classrooms? Anthony Rotolo, a professor at Syracuse University, talks about promising practices for social media in classrooms.

Social Media can be a great resource for professional development. It can also really get in the way of getting a professional position. So how do we navigate a world with amazing potential and potential pitfalls? We all need to think about how we might develop a professional social media strategy. At most, you are three or four years away from entering your chosen profession – it’s time to create your social media profile so you don’t find yourself removing tags from Facebook photos, creating a barebones LinkedIn account, and learning what Twitter is the night before a big job interview.

Here are some examples of social media in classrooms:
Twitter in the classroom
Facebook in the classroom
Pinterest in the classroom

PART III. Characteristics of Social Media
The next step you need to do is exploring one social media tool and building a social media strategy plan using the tool. I think understanding the characteristics of social media will be helpful for you to think about your strategy plan. So, let’s think about important characteristics of social media. Ask your group members. Why do they like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or Youtube? You may google the characteristics of social media.

Plus, one tip I am going to give you is that you don’t need to stick to make a plan for your students. You may also create a social media strategy plan for other teachers. What is social media? You can easily publish and share your knowledge with others using social media! Social media is one of the best tool for sharing your information! You are welcome to create a community where other teachers can share good information.

PART IV. Assignment Submission
The second project was supposed to be due this Wednesday, but I am going to ask your opinions for this. My suggestion is this Saturday (our make-up day), and peer evaluation is due next Wednesday. What do you think about this plan? Do you need more time? 🙂

For Wednesday
Please work on the project. Let me know if you have any question.
