Students may know all about the technology…but they'll still need you to help them use it to learn,…to foster good learning behavior and identity development…and to consider equity issues on their behalf.…If you want to use social media in the classroom itself,…support student comprehension as content…is delivered in the classroom…through backchannels, Google Jockeys and polls.…Engage the students through peer review…and collaborative learning exercises…and facilitate classroom assessment techniques…
