The growing popularity and the pervasive use of social networking websites among our teens and students is a fact we can no longer ignore.
Unfortunately, many school boards still promulgate laws that inhibit access to these platforms in schools and thus missing on huge learning opportunities for students.
Instead of forcing an unwarranted ban on these media tools why not embrace them and turn them into learning hubs where our students can thrive academically.
Using social media in education has got such a huge potential and there are a variety of ways teachers and schools can leverage the networked power of these tools to help students achieve better.
Here are some of the ideas on how to use social media in class.
