Are you an educator that has not explored social media for professional development or have opened an account but are not sure where to get started? Or maybe you just want to take a fresh look at the way you learn and engage with the education world?

Join International Educator and leader Craig Kemp as he shares his story of becoming a globally connected educator and helps you go from lone wolf to hunting with the pack. Learn about Twitter & twitter chats, Google Plus, Hangouts, Skype for Education, Mystery Location and more.

This is a hands on workshop where Craig shares ideas and stories, we connect with experts via hangouts and Skype, create twitter accounts, create Skype for education accounts and have a go at a Mystery Location. For those already connected on these Social Media’s Craig will give you expert advice (he is connected with over 23,000 educators on Twitter) to build on what you have.

Craig will also provide pointers on how to ensure that you develop an appropriate professional profile on social networks. He will also discuss issues around online safety and usage protocols in the event that you plan to use social media with your students.

You will leave this session with an online professional learning network (PLN) and practical strategies on how to integrate social media into your professional development toolkit. You will also leave with practical ideas to use in the classroom to break down the 4 walls and engage your students in global learning.
