This article explores how social media use in formal and informal learning spaces can support the development of digital citizenship for secondary school students.
While many young people are savvy at communicating their values and influencing the attitudes and behaviors of their peers with social media, secondary educators also have a role and opportunity to help their students develop skills that enhance students’ ability to identify problems, create persuasive media, and strategically distribute this media to their peers and communities.
Participants’ out-of-school, authentic civic education activities spur us to take seriously young people’s motivations, engagements, and desires for public participation as suggestive of their interest in a new kind of digital citizenship.
