The Ultimate Teacher’s Guide To Social Media

Teachers are quickly catching on and even surpassing students when it comes to embracing social media. What if you still have questions about the plethora of communication channels that exist for teachers to reach their students? Thankfully we are proud to share ‘Tools For The 21st Century Teacher’ by Michael Zimmer, a Technology Integration Specialist in Western Kentucky.

Michael has painstakingly created a fantastic and easy-to-use guide to some of the best social media tools available today. From Prezi to Wikispaces to Skype, there is a detailed description of how each tool can be best used by teachers. We encourage you to follow Michael on Twitter to stay abreast of all the latest technology integration news. Do you have any additions to this guide? There are lots of other tools and we want to know about them. Let us know by including @edudemic in your tweet!

    That is why I made it available for download in PDF format. You are not the only one to have an "issue" with Issuu. It can be difficult.
