Using Social Media for Teaching & Learning in an era of Digital Natives

Social media technology permeates our lives. Future lawyers must understand how they can effectively and ethically use social media tools both in law school and in law practice. Most law students are millennials and they use their cell phones, tablets, and laptops during class. This presentation will explore and answer the following questions:

  • How can we incorporate social media use into class to enhance rather than disrupt learning?
  • How can law faculty/librarians utilize social media in their classes in a productive, useful and efficient manner?
  • How do we determine what classes are favorable to delivering legal materials using social media?
  • What are some of the potential training/resource materials available to enhance the use of social media and technology in delivering class materials?

This presentation will further embrace the fairly new ABA’s ethics rules relative to lawyers and their use of technology by incorporating social media tools in delivering relevant materials in specific law classes.
