As social media plays a more influential role in the lives of our students, educators must begin to adapt and integrate themselves into the social media scene.  This VoiceThread explores why educators should embrace social media and how they can utilize it in the classroom.  I talk specifically about how Twitter can play a huge role in the professional development of educators as well as foster discussion amongst students.  I also explore Edmodo and it’s possible presence in the classroom.  Enjoy.
