We’re getting excited about the October 13th 8:30 p.m. #PRStudChat session with our panel of educators and a focus on social media in the classroom. Don’t forget: If you have a favorite educator, you can nominate that professor to participate on our panel. To nominate a professor, simply forward his/her Twitter handle to @PRStudChat for consideration.
There are many different topics that we’d like to discuss from Best PR and social media practices to the great examples of colleges and universities using social media to build stronger student and faculty communities. A few of the questions that we’ll be asking that night include:
- What are the most creative examples of how to use social media in the classroom?
- What universities are ahead of their time in terms of social media and curriculum?
- How does social media help you to learn? Is it a distraction, and if so, why?
- Do you think that social media should be a stand alone course or integrated into a PR and other marketing classes?
- What is a best practice approach to students and professors being friends on Facebook. Article with details: http://bit.ly/bL74NR
- How is your college using social media to build stronger student and/or faculty communities?
- What is your favorite social media class assignment? Please share a link.
The last question is your opportunity to participate in the October #PRstudchat challenge. So, students, don’t forget to do your homework before the chat by coming prepared with a link to share a favorite social media classroom project. It could be a class blog or wiki that you feel really helped your learning process. After the session, we’ll select the five most interesting projects and then ask the #PRStudChat community to vote on the one project that they like the most. Both the class and the professor will be awarded with a special gift.
We hope that you will join us for this special #PRStudChat session with our educator panel and a chat challenge that highlights the efforts of the educator, shedding light on the many different ways for students to learn collaboratively in the classroom.
