Learn how you can create social-media-based experiential learning activities that improve student engagement.
Social media tools, including Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and Pinterest are changing the way students and faculty members communicate, share ideas, and build networks. As with many other technologies, the educational community has harnessed the potential of these resources to improve teaching and learning.
