• Social media in the classroom is beneficial for:

    1. Promotion – social media platforms are great to showcase student work, promote special events/programs, and acknowledge student awards
    2. Extended Learning – teachers can use social media to share blog posts or articles to extend student learning beyond the prescribed reading in the curriculum
    3. Creating Connections – social media is an invaluable way to keep connected with parents, and to connect students with educators, experts, and other students outside of their physical classroom and school
    4. Digital Citizenship – the best way for students to understand the best practices of how to use social media responsibly is through experiential learning under the guidance of a knowledgeable teacher
