    Benefits and dangers of social media in education
  •  
    Mine, thank you very much for sharing this link. In my classrooms, the most frequent problems I come across are unoriginal thinking, plagiarism, and cheating. Although social media tools are amazing in that they are up to date, I have doubts on their effects on critical thinking skills of the students. Another case is informality, of course. The tools do limit the vocabulary the students use. I guess the problems that I listed are interconnected in some way. In short, we can conclude that the speed to reach, and the brevity of information the Internet and social media provide push students to be shallow in many respects. It's up to us as teachers to utilize the tools in the best way possible.

    This is a nice infographic. Nowadays the universities are even recruiting social media experts to manage their image on the virtual world. A 2-min-video might become viral and add a lot to the popularity of the university. Or prospective students check the information available about a university on social media channels before making a career choice.
