On average, students spend 7.5 hours on social media every day. For Generation Z, and even Millennials, social media is simply just being social. These apps are an extension of their social world, and these same digital experiences have the power to amplify anxiety and social challenges but also spark curiosity, passion, and joy. No one receives a test before they get on social media. There is no obvious determining factor to decide if someone is “ready” to take on the emotional ups and downs of social media, the mindless (and often hilarious) distractions the internet provides. For years, social media has been a social-emotional scapegoat, but that might be unfounded. Like most things, there are pros and cons to social media, but which one outweighs the other?
This report reveals the pandemic’s impact on lost learning and faculty fatigue, outlines the unprecedented federal relief funding available to K-12 schools, and proposes a reimagined approach to social-emotional learning that reflects modern student experiences. Schools confronting post-pandemic realities must account for the fact that today’s students face unprecedented challenges and pressures not understood or experienced by any previous generation. This is how they can do it.
