Workshop Description:

Modern society widely adopts social media as a primary source of news. However, regrettably, it can serve as a distraction for students. The workshop titled "Understanding the Impact of Social Media and Implementing Strategies to Support Students" aims to address this challenge by offering guidance and resources on integrating social media into the classroom effectively. The interactive workshop will involve participants in the development and implementation of lesson plans. As we strive to fortify foundational skills for students, the workshop will particularly emphasize the cultivation and enrichment of critical thinking abilities.

Outcomes:

Participants in this workshop will delve into the nuanced realm of social media integration within instructional planning, critically analyzing its appropriate applications. The focus extends beyond mere usage to deliberate strategies, as participants actively craft a thoughtful approach aimed at nurturing students' critical thinking skills.

ALL are welcome, including anyone in a non-administrative position!

Participants will earn .5 credit (7.5 hours) toward license renewal!
