Jim Miller on Social Media – Colloquium Series


Jim Miller – Social Media

On March 27, Dr. Jim Miller of Harding University’s Communications Department presented in the CLT’s Colloquium series about the use of Social Media and its role in Education.  In the Colloquium presentation, Dr. Jim Miller discussed strategies for connecting with students educationally through social networks, while fellow faculty members shared their thoughts and experiences with social media.

Did you know a college student owns on average seven tech devices. They spend about three hours per day on social media networks. They check their smart phones 11 times per day during class. Good teachers understand they must connect with their students before they can effectively educate them. In today’s digitally connected culture, teachers should consider using social media to facilitate learning.
