Social media have created powerful new tools for educators to form informal communities of practice with others around the world. As you proceed through the course, we encourage you to share your learning both in our forums and in whatever online networks you participate in. This is optional and you are not required to join or use these tools. One advantage of participating in these networks is that they allow you to make connections that can persist beyond the end of this course. They also allow you to share your learning in this course with your local community and other networks.
As always, whenever you share on social media, be thoughtful about how your posts will be received by colleagues and community, and be sure to follow local norms, rules, and guidelines.
