recommendations on making TikTok a useful tool for children’s education

The popularity of social media platforms is changing, with interests and formats used on social networks for each generation. It is a great challenge for parents to keep up with the latest trends and ensure safe Internet use. At first glance, TikTok seems to be a fun social media platform with amusing videos ranging from dancing to risky challenges, but TikTok has also published educational content, and its volume is growing every day. To make the platform work for the child – parents need to explain how to find useful content.
The news feed of TikTok is based on the interests of the user, like those of many other social media. If the user likes funny cat videos, he will get them as recommended videos. However, TikTok also offers practical content created by teachers, academics, various scholars, historians, art critics, and other professionals and enthusiasts from around the world. Using TikTok accounts, they share short videos demonstrating laboratory experiments, solving math problems, telling historical events, teaching anatomy and many other areas. Therefore, to create a TikTok account as an interesting learning resource, you need to follow, watch and search for exciting educational videos.
When searching, use a hashtag – # sign and a word or short phrase on a specific topic, such as #antarctic or #climatechange. The following hashtags can be used to create your educational TikTok feed:
• #learnontiktok. This hashtag applies to educational videos, but it can also include a variety of tips and lifehacks. Although this hashtag is general, adding it to search queries can help you find some helpful videos.
• #[schoolsubject]. The name of the subject or related things can be used for instant hashtag. For example, to find educational videos and accounts related to math, use #math or #algebra, which can find not only individual videos but also enthusiasts who create such content. With the #history hashtag, you can find an educational video on history. More accurate results are obtained by adding, for example, #historyfacts, #ancientcivilizations, #wwii, etc. So the use of more precise terms narrows the results. Likewise, any other subject, such as #geology, #antropology, #economics, #anatomy #, etc.
“We highly recommend parents to consider the TikTok platform not only as entertaining but also a good educating resource. It is important for grown-ups to know the interests of their children, understand how social networking news flows are working so that to be able to guide them and get interested in educational content. Also, parents should not forget to configure the privacy and security of children’s account”, – comments Andis Steinmanis, General Manager, Kaspersky, Baltics.
