Over the past few years, I’ve been thinking a lot about how social media relates to education. I’ve become especially interested in media literacy and the importance of helping students understand how social media impacts them. I often ask myself:
What are the benefits of embracing media as a teaching tool?
What can media teach us about the way students learn?
Why is understanding the Internet and the use of social media so important in education?
One of my favorite lectures on social media was given by Michael Wesch (Associate Professor of Cultural Anthropology at Kansas State).
