Online Communities in the Classroom

Description

Explore how to make use of online communities in the classroom as secondary French teacher Marie Guyomarc'h gets advice from fellow teachers.

Teachers often shun online communities and social networks due to negative publicity and online safety surrounding certain websites. But Marie meets Lisa Stevens, a primary Spanish teacher who relishes using social media websites for teaching purposes.

Lisa explains the benefits of using websites such as Twitter and Voicethread, and she demonstrates how to use them in the classroom.

Marie then takes on the challenge of applying what she's learned by using it in her own lessons.
