The History of Social Media

30 Jan

logo 7.gifDid you know that social media dates back to the 1960’s or that Google became a major search engine in 1999? I remember when the little blue bird, Twitter made an appearance and thought, well isn’t that cute, but does anyone really want to know what you are doing every moment of the day.  Think about the rapid pace in which social media has risen to become part of our daily lives.  Ten years ago, YouTube wasn’t around nor were iPods. “Sites that weren’t even around 10 years ago are now visited every day” (Bart, 2011). 

So here is my question, when it comes to integrating technology or social media into your classrooms, do you Tweet, Instagram, blog or Facebook?  To learn more about the effective integration of Social Media in the classroom, mark your calendars for Thursday, March 27, 12:00-1:00 pm to hear Dr. Jim Miller share his experiences with social media and how he challenges his students to think about the world in new ways.Social Media - A History
