Incorporating Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook in Economics Classrooms
Al-Bahrani, Abdullah; Patel, Darshak
Journal of Economic Education, v46 n1 p56-67 2015
Social media is one of the most current and dynamic developments in education. In general, the field of economics has lagged behind other disciplines in incorporating technologies in the classroom. In this article, the authors provide a guide for economics educators on how to incorporate Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook inside and outside of the classroom. The authors' aims are to discuss the potential benefits of social media for economics curricula, explain how to effectively use social media, and reduce some of the concerns associated with implementing new technology.
