Presentation
Using Social Media in the Classroom: Assessment of its Effectiveness.
Indiana University Information Literacy Colloquium (2014)
  • Jennifer Wright, Western Kentucky University
Abstract

Social media can be an effective tool in promoting critical thinking and collaboration in library instruction. Whether it is simple polls or a much more collaborative event, these methods engage students and allow them to interact with material, professors, and other students in an organized fashion that might not be feasible without the use of technology. However, many faculty members are quick to incorporate these new learning tools without regard to their effectiveness. In this session, several applications of social media will be presented and their effectiveness will be discussed. Then, to conclude, the participants will discuss the best way to assess these applications.
