Pew Study Shows Teens' Social Media Use Rising, Race Affects Habits

Pew Study Shows Teens' Social Media Use Rising, Race Affects Habits | Parenting and Social Media | Scoop.it

"Teenagers are revealing more about themselves on social media than ever before, but they’re also taking more steps to protect their privacy online, according to  “Teens, Social Media, and Privacy,” a May 21 report issued by Pew Internet, part of the Pew Research Center, and Harvard University’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society. The report also found Twitter use among teens—especially African Americans—is rising, while teens’ fondness for Facebook is on the decline."

All things in eModeration: Moderating Class Blogs and Facebook Student Groups

All things in eModeration: Moderating Class Blogs and Facebook Student Groups | Parenting and Social Media | Scoop.it

Moderation involves students’ participation to online communities and this is something that only you can encourage no matter how powerful a tool is. If participation is optional not all students are likely to contribute. On the other hand, if it is mandatory or marked it might feel like another task that needs to be done. It would be better to integrate it into your course so that students perceive it as an essential part of their learning. For example, you might start a discussion in class that could be continued online; or instead of asking them to write an essay, you could post a relevant video, ask them to discuss it with classmates online and then write something on this.
