Exploring Adolescent Social Media Use in a High School: Tweeting Teens in a Bell Schedule World


by Stacey A. Rutledge, Vanessa P. Dennen & Lauren M. Bagdy - 2019

This multilevel exploratory case study examined the intersection of adolescent social media use and administratorsí and teachersí work in one Florida high school. Through a survey and activities with 48 high school students and interviews with 37 students and 18 administrators and teachers in a Florida high school, we explored the different ways that students and adults used social media both outside and in school. We found that students and adults engaged in active and intentional community building and informal learning across social media sites, however, these activities were largely separate from the formal activities in schools. We discuss the implications of this separation and its potential to energize high schools.
