Social media in the classroom

On one side of this issue, are administrators like Eric Sheninger, principal of New Milford High School, in New Milford New Jersey. Sheninger is a big proponent of social media in the classroom. Where many schools ban the use of phones in the classroom, Sheninger asks his students to power up and get connected. He has nearly 12,300 Twitter followers and he uses his schools robust Facebook page to communicate with students and parents, and to allow students to connect with each other to plan events. He also encourages his teachers encourage students to research, write, edit, perform and publish their work online.
