What Are Some Ways Teachers Use Social Media For Classroom Learning?


Teachers are using social media to connect with colleagues and students. Teachers have also used social media to learn about education, advocate for change in the classroom, and stay up-to-date on resources for their students. Let’s explore it in detail: 

Teachers are using social media to interact with fellow educators to teach better

Social media is a great way to connect with other teachers, but it can also be used as an effective tool for learning. 

  • Teachers share ideas and resources on how to use social media in their classrooms
  • Teachers can ask questions about technology or strategies for teaching effectively through social networks
  • Teachers post photos of themselves in action as part of professional development activities

This allows teachers to share ideas and resources such as online teacher training courses with each other, as well as form discussions about how we approach teaching our students. It also helps us stay up-to-date on what’s happening within our field of expertise (or related fields) so that we don’t feel like we’re reinventing the wheel every time we get started on something new!

To find resources for students

Social media is great tool to find resources for students that they’re familiar with. It helps with projects and presentations as well as with research and writing assignments. 

We can find resources for students online through websites such as Suraasa. These websites will provide free materials such as lesson plans, activities and worksheets that cater specifically towards grades K – 12th grade students.  You can check out some of their FREE online teacher training  masterclasses here.

To advocate for education.

Social media can be used to advocate for education. This is especially true on platforms like Twitter and Facebook, where teachers use their accounts as a means of connecting with other educators and sharing ideas about what’s working in classrooms.

The main goal is to share information that will help others, whether students or parents, understand how their children learn best. For example, you might post an article about how the classroom was set up so the students could feel comfortable asking questions without being scared or embarrassed by other people who were present—or maybe you’d write about how your daughter needed some extra support when she was struggling with homework assignments at home because she hadn’t been doing them correctly enough/

Social media also provides a valuable platform for professional development 

Social media also provides a valuable platform for professional development. Teachers use social media to connect with other teachers and share teaching strategies, find resources for their students and even get feedback from peers on their work. While some may think it’s not as useful as traditional methods of professional development (such as workshops). 

You can learn about new technologies, meet international teacher training faculties, discuss resources for teaching and learning. You can also share your knowledge with others who are interested in the same field of study.

Social media communities can be used by teachers who teach the same subject area or grade level.

Social media communities are a great way to connect with other educators expert in the field of international teacher training, share resources and ask questions. Teachers can also get answers from their peers about lesson planning or classroom management strategies. These communities are also a great way to learn from each other as well!


We can use social media in many different ways to expand our classroom learning. It was a way for teachers to connect with students, too! When you’re using social media effectively with your students, they will feel like they are part of something bigger than themselves. Plus, when teachers use social media responsibly and without compromising student privacy or safety, they’re doing an amazing thing!
