Social and Collaborative Media

Here is a link to my voice thread on using social and collaborative media tools in the classroom.

I chose to look at how teachers and librarians have integrated the new social networking tools, Twitter and Skype, into the classroom. Twitter can be used to share information between teachers, students, libraries and community members in concise “tweets” of 140 characters or less. Skype, an internet video chat site, can help teachers and their students connect to real human resources, around the world, for free. By integrating these 2.0 tools into the classroom teachers are helping their students to become prepared to compete in a global community.
