According to an article written by Fran Smith, we should encourage sharing of ideas via social media because "...we live in a social world. We need to teach students how to be effective collaborators in that world, how to interact with people around them, how to be engaged, informed twenty-first century citizens." I liked this quote a lot because I think it is very true of the generation in school right now! They want to share their ideas with the world and get some kind of feedback--whether that be a "like" on Facebook or a "retweet" on Twitter.
