Josh Murdock of Valencia College presents his thoughts on the importance and direction of social media in education.
Valencia College is supporting students, faculty, and staff in the use of social media through our new “Teaching and Learning with Social Media” course. Though aimed at teachers, this course, in turn, helps prepare students to leverage these emerging tools. Participants will walk away with a understanding of important areas to cover in their own social media courses, such as concepts, tools, ethics, legalities, and teaching. Discussion will take place around what is needed to prepare faculty, staff, and students in utilizing social media inside and outside the workplace.
