Digital and Social Media in Education

16 June 2016 9:30 AM - 16 June 2016 4:00 PM

The event will consider the challenges that educational authorities, schools, teachers, parents and learners face when dealing with the transformational role digital and social media has brought about for understandings of learning - spatially and temporally. The activity will draw together educational leaders with a stake in dealing with the opportunities and threats posed by pervasive social media platforms into one place where challenges can be identified, problems shared and solutions discussed. Research evidence from academia will be interrogated with the practice of teachers and other educational actors and policy recommendations will be made.
