The first school I found that use social networking was Marietta High School (in Marietta, OH). The grade level was 11th grade math. The students had to come up with a YouTube video on a lesson they had learned that year (geometry). Another school I found that used YouTube and other social media was Jerome High School (Dublin, OH). The students who were in the Robotics club (Grade level of 9-12) had to do a video on a robot that they constructed and how it worked.
In Palm Coast, Florida, Indian Trails middle school uses twitter for announcements and news between the school district and students. The middle school has grade levels of sixth, seventh, and eighth. The middle school also uses the social media Rich Site Summary (RSS) for principal’s messages.
