Using social media in the Forest of Reading
The Forest of Reading is made up of wonderful programs that promote great new Canadian literature and authors. This year, some Intermediate students will be engaging in the use of social media to discuss the books being read in the Red Maple program. Students will have the opportunity to use edublogs to write about the books they have read, and use Twitter (if over age 13) to share their blogs and comments about the books.
Twitter can be a very safe tool if set up and used properly. This is a great environment for students to connect with other students to share ideas while building literacy skills.
