Can social media use in a classroom setting lead to significant global learning?

First, workshop facilitators will describe global learning and how social media can play a role in global competency development. Next, they will share experiences from the field, highlighting several social media integration failures as well as success stories.

Finally, workshop facilitators will describe a model of course design for significant global learning based on Fink’s (2009) six dimensions of course design. Session participants will have the opportunity to utilize the model to create learning objectives for a social media assignment for global learning.

This workshop is designed for educators who are new to globalizing curriculum.
