Digital media monitoring

The teaching of media in school is a very complex activity that requires specific strategies. Often the use of technology is synonymous with innovation in the practice of teaching, as if the media were good in itself.  It is useful instead to check whether the introduction of an experience of media education in schools has resulted in real progress in education. 

But social media, while posing many benefits, has been called out as a major influence in things like school bullying, which is why school districts in the U.S. are debating whether or not to monitor the use of teens’ social media activity. In fact, schools across the country are starting to make efforts, or ramping up previous efforts, to get a handle on school bullying manifested through social media.
