10 Reasons to Educate Elementary Students about Social Media | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it

Due to their developmental age, most students have some kind of difficulty with self-management throughout childhood. But, this is to be expected with children. They simply lack the maturity, brain development, and personal experience to understand how to manage themselves in every situation in real life, let alone online.
