This infographic explores the use of social media in schools. We know that teenagers (and tweens) are actively engaged with social media. As educators how can we leverage this use and bring it into our classrooms. We know our students are actively using this technology outside of school...so why do so many schools ban it? This post explores reasons why we should look at this issue.

The infographic is divided into a number of sections.

* 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 Program: Learn about a program in Portland, Oregon and the difference it made

Resources are also provided at the bottom of the infographic.

All of these sites focus on learning and curation, but could one of them really be the "Pinterest of education"?

 

As one of the fastest-growing social networks, Pinterest's popularity can be attributed to its ease of use and vibrant Pinboards.

In some cases, they have even made improvements.

 

Here are five such sites that could be contenders for the title "Pinterest of Education"
