During my first class I showed them the social workers as super-heroes video. This Ted Talk was very motivating and really calls social worker to rise up and make a difference in the world.
As a professor there are times when you can feel the energy in the room. After this video it seemed as if students were ready to go out and advocate for every vulnerable person in the world.
Towards the end of the class I asked if anyone had questions. While answering questions about Google Communities, Twitter & Infographics my heart was filled with happiness. This happiness came from having the opportunity to educate future social workers about various methods of advocating and providing resources to clients in a macro and micro sector.
I am excited about this semester of learning that will empower individuals to become effective practitioners in more ways than one.
