Using social media in schools doesn't have to be scary, says Matt Britland.
The use of social media in education continues to be something of a hot topic with arguments both for and against.
So I carried out a small survey of 27 teaching professionals in order to create a baseline of understanding into the use (or not) of social networking in schools, and also any concerns over some of the e-safety risks. The full survey results can be found here (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1yytBof2eXglBh5YSrj3HatZe2KVNxATFEqU5Jqj0BHk/edit?pli=1).
There are many uses of social media in education - below are just a few of the ways they can be effectively used.
