Steve Spangler On Social Media In Education
Social media in education is transforming the way students interact with knowledge, opening up dynamic, participatory avenues of learning that engage and excite. Take, for example, the broad impact of science experiments that spill out from the traditional classroom onto the global stage of platforms like YouTube.
Remember the explosive glee of the elephant’s toothpaste experiment or the magical conversion of an alcohol-filled water jug into a whooshing rocket? These phenomena capture the imagination, driving learning beyond rote memorization and fostering a sense of wonder and exploration.
They shift the locus of learning from passive consumption to active participation, illustrating the real-world implications and applications of scientific principles. The mastermind behind such transformative learning experiences is none other than Steve Spangler, the ever-engaging educator with a knack for making science irresistibly fun.
