More than 100 teachers from across Europe participated in the SMILE (Social Media in Learning and Education) programme, exploring the challenges and opportunities involved when using social media in education.
The outcomes of the project have been published in a digital handbook. The handbook contains materials and resources along with many valuable reflections and suggestions on some critical aspects of the use of social media in schools.
The handbook will help you to make effective use of social media in your classroom as w ell as helping you to make best use of them for your own professional development.
