Editorial Reviews

“We learn a lot from other people who aren't intended to be teachers, so there are massive educational opportunities with social media. [This book] is a guide for embracing social media and its communication properties to improve educational experience for kids by talking to staff, educators, parents, and even the students themselves. With plenty of ideas on implementing this well for one's school, [this book] is a fine read, and very much a recommended resource for educators and administrators.” The Midwest Book Review, August 2011
