Teaching Through Facebook

According to leading educator and technologist David Warlick, unless we re-examine, reflect on, and make changes to the way we teach, our 21st century student will be stuck in the 19th century classroom. Educators need to vary their teaching strategies and approaches to the benefit of students with multiple intelligences and various learning styles.

With this in mind, the pedagogical rationale for incorporating technology in the teaching and learning of English Literature is to supplement and complement traditional pedagogical approaches, as well as to encourage independent, exploratory, and collaborative learning.

This workshop explores the various ways in which popular social networking platforms such as Facebook, can be incorporated into the teaching of English Literature, in order to motivate students and engage them in the subject through the use of technology.
