This session outlines some of the ways that social media could be used inside out and outside of the classroom. During the workshop delegates were asked to work in groups and consider the value of twitter, blogs and flickr within their own context. The session was delivered as part of TELFest, a week long festival designed for staff at the University of Sheffield by the central Learning Technologies Team, which I manage. You can find out more about the event here: http://www.shef.ac.uk/cics/telfest.
