So many teens have social media and use a variety of sites!

Rachelle Wright's curator insight, May 15, 2015 3:17 PM

Only 10 percent of teenagers do not use social media.  I know one of my good friends has no social media.  It surprises me that she has not gotten at least Facebook yet.  Social media has never been something that was important to her.  I applaud her for that.  I like social media because I can see what my friends are up to and keep an eye on them.  The growth of Instagram has increased 5 percent while Facebook has decreased 9 percent in 2013.  Instagram and Snapchat are mostly used by teens ages 13 to 18.  61 percent of people use Tumblr and say it is their favorite.  I have never been on Tumblr.  I did not know it was that popular.  On social media sites 91 percent of people post photos of themselves.

"Finding apps isn’t difficult. Finding education apps is only a bit more challenging. Finding free education apps is also possible. Finding free education apps worth downloading is a different story entirely.

 

The following is our list for the 55 best apps for learning we can find. Some are formal learning–math drilling and phonics, for example–while others are RSS readers, social media platforms, and the like. Nonetheless, these represent the 55 best we could find as of Q1 2013."

Innovate My School - Anti-bullying advice and guidance for schools | Social Media: Changing Our World of Education | Scoop.it

Since 2006, the Education Inspections Act has made it the legal responsibility of every headteacher to ensure their school's behavioural policy addresses the prevention of bullying in all forms.This timely report is very relevant in today's society. In extreme cases, bullying can lead to feelings of depression, worthlessness, and even suicide.
