So I came across this article recently published on Education Week.org. The author, a freshman in high school, talks about the possibility of merging social media and education within her classrooms.
Check out the article here!
What I found interesting about the author’s point is that she herself begins on the notion that technology in the classroom can be a distraction to students. Her initial depiction of social media is, at first, a negative one and does not favor the applications frequented by her peers. The final note of the author’s tone is one of optimism that social media can, and should, be incorporated in the classroom.
