#smwTeach - Social studies: How educators are using social media

A recap and resources from Social Media Week DC event, February 21, 2013


  1. 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. 

    Three amazing speakers kicked off the conversation:

    Fahad Hassan, CEO of Always Prepped and organizer of the DC EdTech Meetup 
    Joan Le, science teacher at Washington-Lee High School in Arlington 
    Darren Milligan, Senior Media Designer for the Smithsonian Center for Learning and Digital Access

    The event was organized by Dana Allen-Greil, educational technologist at the National Gallery of Art.
