Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

The goal (outcome) of this presentation is to share our experience with other educational professionals who are interested in using social media in the elementary classroom. We will share our successes on how it has impacted our students’ learning and our teaching practices. You will learn how social media can be used across the curriculum and be integrated into your lessons. Attendees will leave with a toolbox of ideas that will help them get started to bring lessons to life with reaching out to people who can help enhance their lessons and provide students with a positive social media experience.
