Teachers' Use of Social Media as Professional Development

Measurement and Quantitative Methods Professor at Michigan State University, Ken Frank, was joined by Kaitlin Torphy, Sihua (Adrienne) Hu, and Jiliang Tang to present at the EdLab seminar in September 2017. The Teachers in Social Media team shared findings from a selection of papers that examine teachers' use of social media including the popular web and mobile app, Pinterest. These papers will be featured in an upcoming special issue of the Teachers College Record currently in development.

Watch the full seminar on Vialogues.

Excerpts from the discussion:

@12:00 Brian Sweeting: teachers spend 12 hours per week online looking for instructional content!

@25:28 Gary Natriello: Interesting that they are following the use of materials into the classroom and then gathering data on the instructional approach.

@38:00 Thomas Anderson: Is there anything else that could have negatively impacted teachers educational resource access?
