TikTok is a social media platform that can be a fun and creative outlet for students, however, the content posted by users is not always wholesome and can contain explicit language, suggestive themes, and lewd gestures.
The platform is highly addictive and has the potential to become a big classroom distraction. Patrick Greene, a technology teacher, when asked about TikTok said, “TikTok is a waste of time. Students make those silly videos during my class and it impacts their grade because they aren’t working”.
