This paper concerns how social media support communication with or through constructive technological artifacts. One of the most salient features of social media is that they sustain interactive multiplicity as much as they contribute to mediation of differences. As evidence of how social media in the classroom can work, after an extended discussion of the overall nature of mediation and interaction, this paper reviews the activities of three years of classroom work involving constructive technology used in a context defined by social media to engage high school and college groups consisting of students oriented toward art, communications, and the STEM areas.
