- Find out what students are doing with social media and what challenges they face
- Develop understandings of the structure of social media platforms
- Provide opportunities to critically reflect on the construction and interpretation of digital identities
- Analyse how news is presented on social media
I still think that the most effective way to engage with social media is through the use of a managed environment. I really like the way Edublogs classroom blogs supports this and think blogging is a useful starting point for understanding the structure. In regards to reflecting on what students are doing, I have found Dave White’s Visitor/Resident tool the most useful.
