Social Media in the Classroom

I will share my real life classroom experience using social media. I have had an excellent experience using social media in my classroom and would love to share with others. I've researched social media as a graduate school project in the IDET program at the University of Utah and would like to share issues, challenges and successes with other teachers to encourage them to be as social networking friendly as possible. I'd like to share the benefits of edmodo, twitter for students (and teachers), titan pad and a few other classroom friendly websites. I would love to be able to help teachers set up with accounts and mobile devices to begin using social networking to enhance their classroom and grow their Professional Learning Network.
