         This is a rather controversial topic, today, in Education.

          Some innovative educators argue in favour of student use of social media, citing an increase in communicating, collaborating, and multi-tasking.

          I’m thinking of Don Tapscott and Terry Freedman, among many others.

          Others denounce student use of social media, saying it distracts students too much, and reduces their ability to learn the basics (like concentrating, questioning, thinking, and problem-solving).

What do you think?  Who is right here? Does it affect their chances for college admission and/or future job applications? Feel free to comment.
