Innovative Uses of Social Media in High Schools. Research Brief
Bravender, Marlena
Principals' Partnership
The use of social media is a phenomenon that is changing the way people communicate. Along with the Internet, social media provide unparalleled opportunity for schools to interact with students, families and community. They also provide incredible resources for improving curricular experiences and improving instruction. Because the growth of social media is a relatively new event, and because of the constantly changing and updating of technology, there are no clear patterns in how schools approach the use of social media. Some schools severely restrict the use by students and employees. Others openly embrace the possibilities and have begun to incorporate the use of social media as part of their curricula.
