Social media tools, such as Twitter, Google+, and blog platforms, have given educators and students another way to present and communicate information with each other online. Instructors often use these tools to develop learning communities, to collect content useful for research or class discussion, to develop online lessons connected to real-world applications, and as a notification tool. Because social media is so prevalent inside and outside the classroom, it is important to know how and when to use it appropriately. The following infographics illustrate how instructors incorporate social media into their classes and give some guidance for students and educators to use it appropriately.
