Using TikTok in the Classroom and Beyond! (Webinar)
January 21 @ 3:30 pm - 4:15 pm
“Mr. Rinkel! You’re TikTok famous!” I’ve heard this phrase via email, messages and as I walked around my school. At the beginning of the school year (September 2019), I heard students and my children talking about TikTok, but had no clue of the app’s potential for education. This session will focus on my journey into TikTok, uses in the classroom, precautions and more! I’ll also discuss how we can use TikTok as a relationship builder with students as well as encouraging teachers across the globe.
