Social media is everywhere – most of us use it, quite a lot of our time! We simply can’t escape it!

But, have you ever thought of taking advantage of what social media offers in your teaching? Can using social media in class help with your students’ learning? Have you ever considered whether it could even help you with your own professional development, and, if so, how?

In his latest vlog for Pavilion ELT, Rubens Heredia shares ideas of how you can make lessons more interesting and even keep developing your teaching skills with a healthy dose of social media –relevant for any teacher who is working live online, dealing with face-to-face lessons (and perhaps social distancing), or doing a mix of the two in hybrid teaching.
