The impact of social media on the students we teach in our secondary and further education establishments is undoubtedly significant. I have spent a little time this week during the half term break thinking about and researching the online behaviours of Generation Z and the role that these digital natives are playing in shaping social media. CBS have put together a useful inforgraphic video which highlights some key trends in social media use by Generation Z and it is well worth taking a few minutes to look at it.

If you have not seen my previous entries on digital natives it may be worth having a look at ‘How do we meet a challenge like my nephew? Digital Natives coming to a school near you.
