I was glad to be invited by the Fully Residential & High Performance Schools Division, Ministry of Education Malaysia to facilitate the 21st Century Learning workshop series. I facilitated sessions on Social Media in Teaching and Learning where 50 teachers from all over Malaysia took part to learn more on how to integrate social media in engaging the students effectively. For the first phase of the workshop series, we explored social media and web tools such as Padlet, Glogster, YouTube and PowToon where participants designed their lesson plans, developed teaching materials and shared them online. The second day was dedicated on various ways Facebook and Twitter can be optimized for teaching and learning in schools. The teachers were brimming with enthusiasm and optimism where they were able to hone their teaching skills by integrating it with the help of social media. It’s high time we reassess how we teach by evaluating the ways  Gen Y and Z perceive studying as well as their behavioural patterns, in order to facilitate effective learning.
