from the article:

 

The Gift of Social Learning

Social media can provide two things that are critical for student engagement in a literate environment: audience and purpose.

 

Audience refers to those who will see what students create and share. By expanding the audience for classroom content, students no longer write for their teacher or peers alone.

 

A project on a classroom blog or on Edmodo, a safe social media site for classrooms, can now reach other students, family members and teachers across the globe.The feedback from this sharing can help students grow, but it also reinforces the need to teach students the importance of revision and being appropriate when posting online.

 

Purpose is the reason students are doing the work. Before students post their thoughts and work online, essential questions should first be considered.Is my project original and creative? What will my audience gain from what I am presenting? Will it make a positive impact on my community? The world? Can others add to what I shared and collaborate with me, potentially making it better?
