Shout out to Adele for a nice pictograph of Postman’s 5 things making it easy to visualise and remember. Was thinking about Postman’s 5 this week while reading ‘A Guidebook for Social Media in the Classroom’.
The article compared the dangers of young people using social media compared to email and traditional letter writing. Of particular note was the progression of writing mediums and how each could inadvertently share private information with people we don’t know. Whatever the medium used, students need to learn and practice effective strategies and best practice to communicate with others.
The article also has some practical ways to integrate social media into the classroom.
