Social activism is obviously very important. Now that we are all so surrounded by technology, I think that social media is a very good place to share awareness to certain views and ideas. As teachers, if we are not posting about important matters and we are not being activists in some sort of way, we are ultimately showing our students that the matters are okay with us. Considering there are so many people on social media, it would be extremely helpful to stand up about certain issues such as racism. By staying silent, nothing will happen to the issue. Since our future students will all have social media of some sort, we need to teach them to use it in a way like activism, rather than a way to put others down, or even do nothing. We all have a large connection with the world through social media and technology, so it is extremely important that we take advantage of that and use it wisely.
