Social Media In Classrooms: A Case For Why It Belongs

Social Media In Classrooms: A Case For Why It Belongs | Technologies in Education | Scoop.it

Avoiding -- or worse, banning -- social media platforms for students prohibits them from being successful professionals in fields like accounting, chemistry, the arts and more.

 

Why so declarative? Because social media (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and blogs) have become the fabric of how the world communicates. Yes, traditional methods of connecting and collaborating still exist -- you can still pick up the phone or write a letter -- but you can also route messages or share ideas with clients, colleagues, vendors and others using collaboration platforms, social networks, wikis and more.

 

In today's business environment, someone lacking not just an understanding but a working knowledge of social media and social networking tools is at a competitive disadvantage. Not preparing our young people - whether in elementary, secondary or post-secondary education environments - to not only have but also excel with these skills means we are failing in our mission as educators.
