    "Social media in the classroom, while not perfect, has its benefits.

    Though many teachers are (perhaps wisely) forbidden to "friend" students on facebook, that doesn't mean that facebook, pinterest, social media at large are without merit in education."

A Guidebook for Social Media in the Classroom | Edutopia - 2 views

    "The myth about social media in the classroom is that if you use it, kids will be Tweeting, Facebooking and Snapchatting while you're trying to teach. We still have to focus on the task at hand. Don't mistake social media for socializing. They're different -- just as kids talking as they work in groups or talking while hanging out are different.

    You don't even have to bring the most popular social media sites into your classroom. You can use Fakebook or FakeTweet as students work on this form of conversation. Edublogs, Kidblog, Edmodo, and more will let you use social media competencies and writing techniques. Some teachers are even doing "tweets" on post-it notes as exit tickets. You can use mainstream social media, too."
