And if your life is too busy for a two-minute interlude, here are the highlights:

  • Use SM (Social Media) to cultivate a community around the activities already being done on campus
  • Support student bloggers
  • Let students be the producers of the school’s content
  • Give students the capacity to think and reflect around their experiences
  • Schools benefit by showcasing what they do to a larger audience
  • Using SM will cultivate a larger community
  • Reflective learning is nothing new, the new challenge is translating the goal into a digital era
