Explaining power of social media to educators

Intelligent people use their brain. Successful people use intelligent people’s brains.

The quote above is out of a Prezi created by Dov Emerson, a school administrator in New York. The quote speaks to the true power of the connectedness brought about by social media. His presentation below is a fantastic way to explain how to use social media to create a Personal/Professional Learning Network (PLN) to other educators.

Here’s another great Prezi from Scott Kapla who is a school admin from Michigan. His presentation was given at the Michigan AP’s conference to give an overview of how Twitter can help share great ideas that benefit students.

Sometimes it’s hard to explain to your colleagues how helpful social media can be, but these two presentations do very well in making that point. Put these in front of some of your colleagues today!
