When I wrote this post I mainly focused on how teachers can help teachers with teaching skills, lesson examples, and social media assessment methods for the students. What I think of now is how it can be a way to help teachers mental health, as an emotional support medium given the high burnout rate occurring in their field. Many studies or teacher questionnaires of their pandemic experience rarely considered their own mental health. In a study by Moss et al. (2020) questionnaires for teachers and parents did not mention the mental health of the teachers themselves (p. 14). This is where platforms like TikTok can serve as morale to aspire humor as a coping mechanism.
