Engaging Social Media for Educators

In each episode of the Inside Our MIND podcast, we take a look at issues and challenges facing education that we are working to address through research, technology and strategic initiatives.

In our latest episode, Brian welcomes Senior Content and Brand Specialist Calli Wright to the podcast for a discussion on how educators can get more out of social media by taking a purposeful approach. Calli delves into the types of content that invite engagement, how different platforms serve different needs, and finding your learning community online.  

If you can show the change in something, that's really powerful. People are going to be more interested in joining the conversation with you if you can share those kinds of learning moments.

--Calli Wright, MIND Research Institute
