Social media is an essential marketing tool for educational publishers. But the changing algorithms, rise and fall of new platforms, and overall nature of social media make some developers hesitant. In their presentation, “Social Media Marketing 2.0: Educators Love Social Media,” several education marketing insiders offered their perspectives on how to take advantage of this unique marketing tool.
This edWebinar will explore pushing the boundaries of “social” media to reach and connect with educators. Join us for a collaborative discussion on “social” media.
The drawbacks of social media are well-documented—like anonymous trolls posting negative comments just to spark controversy. However, said Jamie Knowles, Senior Manager of Educator Professional Learning Programs at Common Sense Media, social media also has the ability to help users share their stories and shed a positive light on their activities. In his presentation, “Educators and Social Media: Avoiding the Pitfalls,” Knowles discussed some challenges of using social media but also the positive ways schools are using it to educate and communicate with their families.
In this edWebinar, Jamie Knowles, Senior Manager of Educator Professional Learning Programs at Common Sense Media, will share strategies for helping teachers use social media in a way that benefits their students, their school, and themselves.
In this edWebinar, a panel of experts in education marketing look back and forward to discuss the evolution of social media in education.
Dignity—it’s not a word often associated with social media and online interaction. However, as part of a new education program from Seton Hall Law School’s Institute for Privacy Protection, communication, community, and dignity are key themes of the curriculum. Overall, the goal is to educate students and parents about privacy and technology overuse. But they try not to shame the students and parents, said Gaia Bernstein, law professor and director, Institute for Privacy Protection at the Seton Hall University School of Law, and Najarian Peters, Assistant Professor, Institute for Privacy Protection at Seton Hall Law School. During the recent edWebinar, “Educating Students and Parents About Privacy and Technology Overuse,” they explained it’s counterproductive to become another authority figure telling students what not to do. Instead, by encouraging students to share their stories and having them explain how technology impacts their lives, the program gives students the agency to take control over their technology use.
