Social Media In Education

Education is one very important field that has been greatly benefitted by the social media networks. This might be sounding a little weird to many but this is the truth. Their are a number of social media networking websites that contribute a lot to the educational field and there have been many benefactors of these. These websites allow children and youngsters to get an introduction about few ancient and vintage authors and their treasured works which otherwise might be a little difficult to obtain. There are many children groups, parents groups, many communities consisting of likeminded people and such platforms can be seen nowhere but on the internet in the form of social networking. Being a member of one of these groups is really very informative and the best thing about these websites is the freedom they offer in helping the people of the community commute to each other with freedom without barricades.

Teachers in many countries use their Twitter accounts for posting assignments and blogs related to subjects along with a hashtag. Since the ones that are posted on twitter remain forever unless and until deleted by the owner, it becomes a permanent record and hence very helpful to the children in turning back to the pages at any time. And since these are posted on such social networking websites, there might be readers other than the children groups and they are also at freedom to comment and add suggestions and points to the posted information which becomes even more informative and useful to the children.

This way, the time that is spent in giving clarifications and clarifying doubts is reduced and hence the time spent in the class teaching is made more productive. It is not just this but they can also be linked to other networks on the internet and my preferred service for getting more viewers on YouTube is this.
