Applying social media in schools

Applying social media in schools | Digital Citizenship in Schools | Scoop.it

Social media can improve communications between staff and parents, and create online spaces for use by particular sections of the school community. Teachers can also use the social media in many ways for their own professional development. Within a school's online space students can be shielded from unwanted aspects of the social media, but it is also important that both students and staff know how to operate safely on their own in the wider web environment.
