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.
