As my school has recently adopted the use of “SeeSaw”, a social media platform designed for primary school students, I am particularly interested in the use of social media in the classroom, especially in the primary years. The use of social media in grade 2 has allowed students to create and share media with parents, teachers, and classmates. They are provided various means of demonstrating their learning (through text, audio, video, images, animations) and are given a chance to engage in constructive feedback and dialogue with peers, teachers, and classmates. They are also provided a platform that acts as a running portfolio of their learning progress over time. In addition to providing a means of sharing, interacting, and peer- and self-assessing, they are also exposed to the familiar pitfalls of social media use. In particular, they are vulnerable to cyberbullying and online predation (despite SeeSaw being a ‘safe’, closed platform). Additionally, students are sometimes faced with social anxiety as they are forced to engage in inorganic dialogue with peers as a mandatory condition of “collaboration”. Likewise, students may inevitably suffer from the mental well-being issues that commonly arise from comparisons with peers online and the potential lack of self-confidence that may develop. Considering the ubiquitousness of social media today, I think this is a valuable topic to explore.
