Using WordPress to Teach 21st Century Skills 

How can we empower students to pursue meaningful lives and productive careers? Moreover, how can we cultivate their dedication to service and civic engagement while also fostering their professional development? This presentation focuses on ways to incorporate WordPress in the classroom to publish students’ multimedia reports as part of their community engagement projects. Based on his experience using branded WordPress sites in his public relations classes, David Painter will discuss the lessons learned from this experience as well as suggestions and best practices for using WordPress in the classroom more broadly to prepare our students for fulfilling, purposeful lives and rewarding careers.
