Social Media in Schools Emily Stoverink

Benefits of Social Media in Schools

  • Social media platforms allow students to interact and share ideas without being in the same classroom
  • Students can collaborate in educational discussions using social media tools
  • Teachers can use certain social media platforms to stay in touch with students about assignments and upcoming events in class
  • Social media can expose students to more material through videos, articles, pictures, or other web resources
  • Students and teachers can connect with people around the world though video messaging platforms

Safety Tips for Social Media in Schools

  • Be sure to ask your administrator before using social media in your classroom.
  • Make sure students are focused on the academic use of the social media tools. Sometimes they can get distracted and use them for personal reasons.
  • Teach students the importance of not posting inappropriate comments, images, or videos.
  • Too much social media in the classroom can limit the students interaction with peers, face-to-face. Find a good balance between group work and collaborating on social media.
