Eighty percent of K-12 teachers use social media for personal or professional reasons, yet the same number worry about conflicts that may arise with their students or their parents as a result, according to a new survey from the University of Phoenix College of Education. “Students are engaged daily in social media, so it presents a great way to connect with them,” said Kathy Cook, director of educational technology for University of Phoenix College of Education, in a prepared statement. “Social media can also help tie classroom learning to real-world scenarios, which can enhance student learning. Many teachers see the value of using these tools in the classroom, but may be reluctant to engage without clear guidelines and training.”
