Social Media and Student Communication: A Compelling Perspective
A Conversation with Angela Stockman
Rather than viewing social media as an inhibitor to our teaching, Angela Stockman makes a compelling case for embracing this medium as a teaching tool. Truly an innovative thought leader, her perspective on opening new “corridors of learning” for students by utilizing technology to nurture writing is inspiring. Although she describes herself as a “hot mess” in high school, she clearly has it together as an educator/author! Look for her guidance in teaching “cool” and “warm” feedback in the classroom. Another overriding theme of this session is a poignant reminder to not make assumptions about our learners’ interests. Angela has graciously shared the most amazing resources on MyEdExpert.

Note: This podcast is purposely situated next to that of Ryan Schaaf’s, who is a digital gaming expert. Their philosophies about technology in the classroom are quite thought-provoking.
