This Capstone Project focuses on How Social Media Affects Learning in High School Classrooms. This is an important issue because Social Media is ubiquitous in the lives of students, and this flows into their classroom learning as well. Social Media has been found to affect students grades, attention span classroom behavior, and so much more. The primary stakeholder perspectives for this project are hearing from current high school students, high school teachers, and high school alumni who have graduated from high school within the last five years. Based on the stakeholders perspectives and data analysis, there has been a consensus found regarding whether the effects are positive or negative. Based on an analysis of the interviews and the relevant research literature, the researcher used what they learned to formulate an action that responded in a way that inspires, informs, or involves a particular audience.
