This important book includes case studies and practical strategies to help design learning activities within a course that will take advantage of social media in order to better meet pedagogical needs and increase the course effectiveness. Administrators will also find the information useful for planning programmatic implementations and faculty development programs for the use of social media. Although the practical uses shared will focus on pedagogy in higher education, these uses can be generalized to other sectors such as K-12 or organizational learning. The issues addressed in the best practices and in faculty development can be informative for individuals involved in professional development and network building.
