Social Media and Personal Learning Communities in Schools

A Resource Link blog post from last September gives a great overview of how social media can help teachers grow their personal learning communities. Social media allows us to connect not only to those we know, but also to those who we don’t know, but who share our passions, our interests and our profession." Roberts and Pruitt, in their book Schools as Professional Learning Communities (p3, 2009) quote research that suggests that the major obstacle for schools who wish to develop as learning communities is the provision of resources such as time to collaborate, leadership support, information and ready access to colleagues. Social Media is not the total answer; but in schools where money and time are in short demand (and which school isn’t in this situation?), they can go part of the way in meeting these needs. Here's how: 1. Social media providing time to collaborate 2. Social media providing leadership support 3. Social media providing information 4. Social media providing ready access to colleagues Learn more here. Not comfortable with your social media skills? Atomic Learning can help.
