Social media are often blamed for distracting our students and shortening attention spans, but educators should take a second look. In her presentation on using social media to extend the boundaries of the classroom, Georgetown University historian Marcia Chatelain will discuss how she has been able to tackle difficult dialogue in her classes with the help of digital platforms. Chatelain will also talk about #FergusonSyllabus, the Twitter campaign she launched in August 2014 to organize academics to respond to the crisis in Ferguson, Missouri.
