10 Reasons to Educate Elementary Students about Social Media

10 Reasons to Educate Elementary Students about Social Media | Social media don't be overwhelmed! | Scoop.it

It is always interesting to find out that more and more of our younger students are becoming involved with the Internet and Social Media.

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.

Social Media Belongs in the Classroom | Social media don't be overwhelmed! | Scoop.it

Teachers who resist using social media in the classroom are stripping their students of an essential component of their future success. Avoiding – or worse, banning – social media platforms for students prohibits them from being successful professionals in fields like accounting, chemistry, the arts and more.
