I recently read this great piece from George Couros (@gcouros) and liked the 5 ways that he sees social media’s impact on education:
- It’s free.
- It cuts down on isolation.
- Building tolerance and understanding of cultural diversity.
- It can amplify passions.
- The world of educations is (and needs to be) more open.
As George says “… education is based on relationships” and that social media can help bring our world together.
I highly encourage you to read his full post here: http://georgecouros.ca/blog/archives/1860
