7 reasons to take a break from Social Media

break social media

 

A few days ago, I discovered again, how much we depend on Social Media – Facebook and Instagram failed to load the pictures people posted there, and the platforms looked quite wired, people started to blame themselves for not uploading pictures correctly, or for their weak internet connections. Finally, there came information that there is a problem with both platforms. It felt quite strange to leave Facebook and Instagram aside and find something else to do. Maybe this is the right sign, to make us aware that we need to take a break and detach us from Social Media. Moreover, because this is holiday time and we need to re-learn to enjoy what surrounds us at a certain moment and to spend nice time with dear people instead of checking curiously what is new in our accounts.

How social media can help in your learning process

 

Recently, I have discovered that there is a new trend in the use of social media. One TV interview has revealed to me that children use nowadays social media to understand the material presented in school more efficiently – social media offers them the possibility to rewatch videos on Youtube for so many times until they understand everything, or they can ask other students in groups questions. Even for online course creators, the connection with social media is useful because in that way they can keep in contact with their students and respond to questions or deliver supplementary material to their course.
