Mass. social studies teacher integrates social media in lessons
Howard Wolke, a social studies teacher and instructional technology specialist in a Massachusetts district, said his goal is to integrate technology, including social media, into lessons -- helping engage students and promoting 21st-century digital citizenship. That includes a lesson earlier this year, prior to President Barack Obama's State of the Union address, in which Wolke asked his students to respond to his questions about the address on Twitter in real time.
