This article from the Dominican University’s School of Education gives interesting insight to the different ways social media can be utilized in the classroom, and also addresses the pros and cons of using social media. I definitely agree with the ideas that discuss how social media has such a big role in our lives and in the way our world is shaped today, so it only makes sense that it can be used to foster collaboration and discussion in a positive way. However, i also agree that the use social media should be monitored as it can be a distraction to students. Social media has many benefits, as well as concerns. It can foster communication at a larger scale, but also takes away from face-to-face interactions.
