I joined a #whatisschool Education Twitter chat on 9/12/19 that was inspiring and refreshing and titled: Growing a Peaceful School. (Here are some screenshots of the series on) . . .
Even as ‘far back’ as 2013, the Pew Research Center on Internet & Technology in their “Civic Engagement in the Digital Age” report stated that 63% of SNS users had “gotten involved” with fellow citizens in a meeting or group to solve some identified problem in their community – the national average is only 48%. It is noteworthy that the PRC identified this as “involvement” in social activism rather than simply awareness, or what some have called slacktivism: mere Facebook posts (or the like) of support for social change without the political activism to back it up. . .
