We know that different people use social media in distinct ways, often based on gender, age, income, etc. But how about looking at the perceptions of social media use by public school teachers versus students?
Consider these observations by Kati Lepi, writing for Edudemic:
“It turns out I was right – at least according to the handy infographic below, which details how both teachers and students [high school] view some of the more popular social media platforms. Facebook is for old people (according to students) – so I wasn’t too far off. I’m old (apparently). And with just about the expected amount of no surprise, teachers and students see each platform quite differently. Teachers’ favorites are not student favorites, and vice versa. And those that are popular with both are not necessarily for the same reasons.”
