Social Media In Education From Edutopia

This guest blog article from Edutopia has some great points to make about the role of educators in teaching students about the responsible uses of social media such as Facebook and Twitter. The guest blogger, Steve Johnson, made several key points.

  1. It is quickly becoming our duty as educators in the 21st century to guide our students towards responsible use of social media.
  2. Social Media use is becoming our new first impression.
  3. Connected, community based learning is important. By blocking social media use, we are depriving our students of a huge opportunity to allow them to learn in connected ways.
  4. In five years, the filters will be gone whether you like it or not.
