Twitter in the classroom

Twitter in the classroom? Online Safety Week 2013 to feature internationally acclaimed Alberta Speaker George Couros - It’s asked daily in thousands of homes – “What did you learn in school today?” – and the standard answer is usually “nothing” or “not much.” Leading Alberta educator and technology authority George Couros is convinced that Twitter and other social media are what’s needed to flesh out that answer. Couros will discuss Digital Leadership and Parent 2.0: Connecting With Your Kids in a Digital Age, at a free public lecture in Calgary on Tuesday, March 5, 2013 in the Online Safety Week Keynote Speaker Series. The event runs from 7 – 8:30 p.m. at Bishop Carroll High School, 4624 Richard Rd. S.W. For more details go to www.cepfoundation.com. 4624 Richard Rd. S.W.
