10 Strategies To Help Students Use Social Media For Critical Thinking - TeachThought via @kevmowat

10 Strategies To Help Students Use Social Media For Critical Thinking - TeachThought via @kevmowat | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
Use of social media platforms like twitter, facebook, and instagram can walk a fine line, teetering back and forth between connectivity and narcissism.

So then, let’s take a look at 10 ways we can help children–students, in this case–use social media critically. Critical thinking begins with the self and extends out. Rather than fight things like ‘screen time,’ maybe we can help them use that time in more constructive ways grounded in critical thinking.
