Abstract

The quick ascension of social media in the 21st century has left teacher educators scrambling to understand the implications of networked students and educators, and the associated pedagogical possibilities and challenges. Five teacher educators will present a diverse set of perspectives based on our use of social media with pre- and in-service teachers during the past four years. Our experiences range from public to private university settings, and from face-to-face, to online courses, to MOOCs. We will discuss the practical use of a variety of social media, including Twitter, Google+, Voxer, GroupMe, and Pinterest. We will offer two conceptual models that can be used to understand educational uses of social media. We will also briefly highlight the results of both cross-institutional and international comparative research on the use of social media in teacher education. Finally, we will facilitate a discussion on the topics addressed and participants' questions.
