Social Remediation : taking the conversation online into a Social media community without tears ...
Teachers, School principals and headmasters have a number of concerns about introducing social media into the learning environment. Negative social media is something that the media has blown out of proportion – Social Media communities are under constant fire from critics as well as the members of the community itself, who are all too eager to shoot themselves in the foot and troll their way to cheap thrills at everyone`s expense. In Social Remediation, Peter Sutton directly addresses the notion of the "social media crisis".
As well as looking into the risks of social media use, Social Remediation discusses the best ways to protect our students from negative online experiences, demonstrating how effective social media planning for schools can minimise risk, while simultaneously increasing the benefits of social media for the positive aspects of learning, teaching, and boosting understanding.
The benefits of social media are many and include ...
- Building a positive school culture by enabling quick and easy sharing of achievements.
- Encouraging positive attitudes and responsible use of social media at school and at home.
- Enabling discussion, leading to better understanding, new perspectives, and improved outcomes.
- Facilitating effective reputation management through official online resources and updates.
- Creating a professional online community of educators for knowledge & idea sharing.
- Offering a familiar learning environment: 90% of 12-17 year old Australians use social media.
