Social media tools like Twitter, Facebook, Skype and ning make some educators run away in fear or shake their heads in disgust, but these tools, when used effectively, can work together to create a strong online community of educators who can share information, learn from each other, and grow as professionals in their field. And it’s not difficult to learn how to make the most of these resources so that teachers can access them in seconds and gather a wealth of new teaching strategies, resources, and connections. Not only can these tools be used among educators for professional growth; they can also be used to strengthen the tie between home and school so that communication with parents and guardians is frequent and worthwhile. For all who are involved in Early Childhood Education—from beginners to experts in the field–this session is not to be missed. Participants at all levels will leave knowing ways they can safely and ethically utilize the latest social media tools in their own classrooms, offices, and networks, to better themselves, their students, and their community at large.
