Improving teaching through social media

Administrators have a fantastic opportunity to help improve the quality of teaching in their schools through using web tools. As administrators walk around and see examples of higher-level learning, they can capture the learning through pictures or videos. They will make sure that the pictures or videos clearly show the specific learning goal and the higher level-learning as opposed to some “cute” picture of students. For example, an administrator could take a picture of a student-made social studies concept map that contrasts the causes of the American Revolution and the American Civil War. The administrator could post it to the school website, Facebook page, or a Flickr school page. Likewise, the administrator could tweet, “English 8 students work in groups of three to help each other have more evidence and detail in their essay paragraphs.”
