Social Media Smarts

Age Level: 10–13  Grade Level: 5–8

It's nearly impossible for most of us to imagine what our lives would be like without social media. However today's teens unarguably eclipse their elders in the reliance on and adept, intuitive use of a whole range of social media platforms. Savvy though they may be, teens are still plagued by the same specters that haunt all social media users, such as trolls and bullies, privacy issues, and fake news. Arm readers with the knowledge, tools, and critical perspective they need to navigate the tricky world of social media and educate others about how to do so in an informed, intelligent way. Features include: Instead of presenting yet another alarmist take on the dangers of social media, this set offers smart, commonsense steps kids can take to protect themselves. Helps middle schoolers develop into digital citizens and empowered learners, a major goal of the ISTE Standards for Students. Educates readers to think critically about the role of digital technology, an important aspect of the Communicating and Critiquing Conclusions dimension of the C3 Framework for Social Studies. Chapter Notes and Further Reading sections allow readers to learn more. Interesting sidebars present topics that inspire this kind of extended investigation.
