How are teachers using social media in the classroom? And how can your organization or museum best reach and support educators by providing relevant resources, facilitating social activities, and connecting them with your social content? These and other questions were explored during last week’s Social Media Week DC event, including a lively discussion of the rapidly evolving role of social media in teaching and professional development in the education sector.
