The Pros And Cons Of Social Media In Education [INFOGRAPHIC]

The Pros And Cons Of Social Media In Education [INFOGRAPHIC] | 21st Century Concepts-Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

In less than a decade, social media has had a tremendous impact on the world around us. Businesses of all sizes can leverage platforms such as Twitter and Facebook to build large, engaged communities, raise awareness and drive footfall. Equally, social media empowers consumers to make smarter decisions, engage with brands and demand better customer service. Social media is also playing a significant role in the education system, with many schools and universities eager to adopt the use of these tools in the classroom. Managed correctly, these channels can be a great boon for students. But poor understanding of the medium can result in a low level of maintenance and interaction, which can be detrimental to student satisfaction and engagement rates.

Good Classroom Tech Is Like a Sweet Old Softball Glove | Powerful Learning Practice

"Paul Barnwell’s article “Why Twitter and Facebook aren’t Good Instructional Tools” is a ruse…in a good sense. I think it’s a brilliant way to get a whole load of readers coming to the defense of social media tools in the classroom. But take a minute to read what he’s written and you’ll see it’s not an attack, it’s a call to action.
Done well, social media and technology integrated into the classroom feels like a familiar old softball glove. It becomes an extension of your hand and you almost forget that it’s there. Done badly, it’s a waste of time and the return on your investment is nil."
