Undoubtedly, social media become a part of people’s personal, social, and political lives in various aspects (Krutka et al.2019). Therefore, great emphasis is placed on exploring new possibilities of social media for educational purposes. Therefore, great emphasis is placed on exploring new possibilities of social media for educational purposes. Particularly, the role of social media in student learning and teacher learning (Greenhow et al.2019) is more considered. From my point of view, although both approaches are important, more emphasis should be placed on teacher training at the moment. I think in this way for the following reasons: (1) teachers are more opportunities for learning by using social media than youngsters; (2) teachers’ mentality is more resistant to problems from social media while the young generation is vulnerable; (3) teachers have more power to enrich students’ media literacies than others, but to teach it they will be literate first.
Teachers use SM for a purpose, such as to find online groups of supportive and collaborative colleagues (Greenhow et al.2019). While there are no borders on using SM for teachers, students have several issues. For instance, the majority of school districts block access to such tools and technologies (Ahn et al.), or if we consider this issue broadly, some countries have “non-written” bans for using social media among children. This is due to a lack of media literacy in children, and parents protect their children from various hazards from the network by banning them to use. This leads to the second issue. While there are several obstacles in using social media at schools in terms of the safety of children (such as cyberbullying (Gr), identity impersonation, and other forms of violence on the platforms of social media companies (Ahn et al)) and most of them are vulnerable to suffering, teachers have a strong mentality to overcome such issues.
Since teachers’ social networks and communities influence not only their professional learning but also classroom effectiveness (Greenhow et al.2019), I think that first of all teachers should be taught to use social networks safely in the process of learning, and then with the help of teachers, it could be to form such skills in students. If the focus is on the students first, the result will be slower due to a large number of students. Furthermore, what can a teacher teach a student who is not yet fully aware of the use of social networks in learning?
