Teach students how to use social media first, and language skills will follow. That's Pedro Peixoto's line of action, which his company, Idiomplus, implements in the classroom.
Pedro Peixoto runs a company that teaches social media skills as a gateway to language learning. He argues that by showing students how to use various different platforms, you give them tools to learn a language by themselves. He says social media works as a virtual setting that gives a taste of authenticity for those who aren’t physically immersed in their target language and culture.
Is this method effective? Is greater global access to online resources blurring the boundaries between formal and informal education? How can teachers implement this philosophy in the classroom?
