Teachers tap social media for authentic learning experiences
Educators and advocates say schools increasingly are adapting to new technology and now are beginning to use social media, such as Skype and Twitter, in innovative ways to create authentic learning experiences for students.

Educators are cautioned, however, to ensure social media use is private, education-oriented and secure. Scholastic Administrator magazine (Winter 2014)Bookmark and Share
