Prohibiting the use of social media in class projects



The recent news from the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) about their appeal for schools to stop the use of social media in giving class projects and homework should be fully supported by the Department of Education.


Social media is the easiest medium to deliver information in this digital age using the latest on-hand technologies. However, it opens the door to one's identity in the world wide web making young learners prone to different cyber threats. Social media as a tool for collaboration and communication could defeat its purpose if not used properly and may cause serious problems. It can also be a tool that could provide gaming applications, marketplace or online services, and viewing of different multimedia content which are not appropriate to the level of maturity of young learners.
