CMRubinWorld advances its popular monthly series of the Top Global Teacher Bloggers with a dialogue on the innovative uses of social media in education

Our world is inevitably interconnected and social media will play an integral role in the future of education. Learning to utilize the promise of technology in the most effective ways possible is of key importance in global education reform. The Top Global Teacher Bloggers offer a range of insights from years of innovating pedagogical practice across numerous cultures. These experts were asked by The Global Search for Education: What are the best examples you have seen of teachers using social media to enhance learning?

The Top Teachers use social media in the classroom to exchange book recommendations, play concerts with fellow musicians half-way around the world, and share resources on twitter chats. In the words of world-renowned educator Nadia Lopez, founding Principal of Mott Hall Bridges Academy: “The power of social media is that it allows for the connection and sharing of information. That gives children in any classroom the access to experience a world beyond the limitations of their own neighborhood. It’s a resource that both deepens their understanding and prepares them to become compassionate, tolerant, and empathetic—qualities essential to becoming global citizens.”

The Top Global Teacher Bloggers are pioneers and innovators in fields such as technology integration, mathematics coaching, special needs education, science instruction, and gender equity. They have founded schools, written curricula, and led classrooms in 13 different countries that stretch across every populated continent on earth. These teachers empower and enrich the lives of young people from nearly every background imaginable.
