  • Hi Sarah!

    I enjoyed reading your post because I have never learned about Blue Zones before and I found the topic really interesting! The inclusion of a variety of statistics was very helpful in comparing the diets of Blue Zones to the diet of Americans. It put into perspective how food is very influential on a culture and lifestyle of a…Read More

    In my last blog post, I discussed the role that social media plays in how our society learns information in a way that is relevant to our evolving world. Social media improves our collective wellbeing by bringing awareness to...

    • Hi Maia,

      I really like your ideas of how social media can be better used despite the cons it presents. You give the reader ideas that support your claim that social media can be shown in a positive light through the education system. I also like how you started off your post by recapturing what you said in your last post to connect these topics; you organized your thoughts in a clean and in a way that makes sense to the reader. Overall, I thought this was a great topic to touch on and could be a great strategy for teachers in the future.

    • Hey Maiaaa!! I was intrigued by your post because I had written similar blogs about this topic of negative effects social media can have on teens and youth and the importance it holds in how people can remain aware of social issues in the world today through the media. Basically we think alike 🙂 I love your idea of teachers implementing a new way of educating students through platforms they can relate to and are familiar with because it would be very beneficial for kids to learn through social learning. I liked when you said “By using this method, it motivates students to interact with their peers as well as learn other perspectives from people around the world because all social media users are connected through one outlet.” I think your ideas are very relevant and well-explained. Overall, I enjoyed reading your post, and thanks for sharing!!

    • Maia,

      Great work on this post! I love how you began with an evaluation of the pros and cons of social media; it really shows your ability to objectively analyze a topic. This post is especially interesting to me because it highlights the necessity to evolve with technology. As the world enters an increasingly hi-tech reality, it is essential that students and teachers utilize the resources available to them in order to enhance the learning experience. I definitely agree that social learning should be experimented with and applied to schools since it offers such a unique and individualized approach to education. Overall, amazing post, and I look forward to your future work.

    • Maia,
      I really liked how you showed both the positive as well as negative aspects of social media before stating your view on the topic. With the civilization becoming more and more technological and tech-dependent each day, its important that everyone know what resources they have at their fingertips and how they can be beneficial, especially within the classrooms.

      Great work!

    • Hey Maia,
      I really liked how you included that there were positives and negatives to social media and the different uses for social media. You did well explaining the extent to which social media can be used such as for school projects and also outside of school as a way to connect with friends and family. Though social media can have a large impact on mental heath, there are also plenty of resources and people on social media that can provide help for those individuals with depression or anxiety. I agree that social media can encourage students to learn and become more engaged because they are familiar with social media. Overall, very nice job:)

  • Although the speaker is seemingly “in charge” in Andrew Marvell’s poem “To Coy His Mistress,” the inescapability of death and time ultimately has control as seen through the urgency of the speaker to enjoy the pleasures of life and his feelings regarding the mortality of man.
