This is the second part of The Comprehesive Guide to The Use of Social Networking in Education Part 1. Your amazing interaction with the first part has proved to me how much interested you are in this topic and today we will go a step further into the practical part of this guide.
After you have learnt in the first part about key notions of social networking, how it evolved, reasons why school should embrace them, their benefits on both teachers and students, you will now be able to have access to a set of the most useful social networking websites where you can meet up with other educators from all around the world and always stay in the picture of the latest news in the educational sphere.
