  • Sharebar

Social media has become an integral part of a student’s life, offering an easy avenue of digesting news and keeping up with friends and colleagues. However, we’ve only started the debate oh how social media has affected student productivity, behavior, and if the time spent on social media sites has detrimentally affected course studies.

Online Education details some of the statistics that have been performed, largely from a University of Maryland study. While the quantitative evidence points to both positive and negative effects, its clear that social media as a whole can certainly be utilized for a greater positive outcome for students. The solution is undetermined, but seamless integration between classroom and personal life would seem to help students utilize Facebook and Twiiter for their studies.

What do you think?
