Social media in the classroom is still a fairly new concept especially in elementary schools. As a primary teacher I am amazed at how much the students already know about social media platforms like facebook, twitter, instagram and even YouTube.

To move social media into the classroom is seen with mixed emotions. As educators we should be educating out students on how to be safe online especially in todays world.
