#tweetMYclass: Make Social Media Tools Work for the Classroom
City University of New York IT Conference 2013, New York, New York
Moderated by Janet Esquirol

Description:
Using social media as an academic tool? Imagine: You’d like each student to collect pictures for inspiration on a project; how about using Pinterest? Want your students to connect with an industry mentor? Then demo LinkedIn Pro. Let’s discuss creative uses for social media in the classroom, and also examine those which fail. Format will combine short topical introductions with some demonstration, followed by lively roundtable discussion.
