Video: Student Creation of Social Media Content

In this video I describe how educators can engage their students in the creation of social media – photos, videos, podcasts, and blog articles – as a learning activity. Students likely already have the tools and experience using social media. Educators can harness this experience to create content for learning and to share with future student groups. This video was recorded at the 2009 National Association of EMS Educators Symposium. In the comments are share how you are engaging students to create social media, like blogs, Facebook pages, podcasts, or YouTube videos, as an education activity. Also I talked about social media as an elearning activity in my 2009 EMS Expo presentations.
