The Use of Social Media in School

The Use of Social Media in School | 21st Century Teaching & Learning Resources | Scoop.it
Teachers and schools are attempting to leverage the engaging qualities of social media for use in the classroom and beyond.
Linda Buckmaster's insight:

 We know that teenagers  are actively engaged with social media.  We know our students are actively using this technology outside of college...so why do so many colleges ban it? This infographic has been divided into sections exploring reasons why  educators should look at this issue.

 

 - If You can't Beat 'Em, Join 'Em - Social Networking Stats

 

-  Benefits of Social Media in the Classroom - a look at Student Benefits, Educator Benefits and Parental Benefits

 

- Examples of Social Media in the Classroom: Looking at Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Blogging

 

-  Social Media Pilot Programme: Learn about a programme in the USA and the difference it made

 

See resources provided at the bottom of the infographic.
