Using the Internet and Social Media to Enhance Social-Emotional Learning

Using the Internet and Social Media to Enhance Social-Emotional Learning | Web 2.0 Changes | Scoop.it

"The news media is filled with horror stories about young people and the Internet, but what is often overlooked and not reported are the benefits that technology, the Internet, and Social media have in building and enhancing social-emotional skills."

Joe T.'s insight:

This is an advancement as previous websites of the 1.0 have not helped benefit young people.

Once again Jackie Gerstein has written a post about a topical issue that has great depth in both vision and resources. 

Some of the quotes from research include:

"Engaging in various forms of social media is a routine activity that research has shown to benefit children and adolescents by enhancing communication, social connection, and even technical skills."

"Social media sites allow teens to accomplish online many of the tasks that are important to them offline: staying connected with friends and family, making new friends, sharing pictures, and exchanging ideas. Social media participation also can offer adolescents deeper benefits that extend into their view of self, community, and the world,"

Along with the bibliography she also provides links to other posts she has written on this issue (and links to some posts by others) as well as links to a new website she has created that has activities that use technology to enhance social-emotional skills.
