EDUCAUSE Social Media

After a full day of information overload starting with a 7:30 breakfast (I am never up by 7:30 am), I nearly gave up this session on the use of social media - Facebook, Twitter, and all the lesser known ones - for teaching. Participants are almost divided about this particularly when it requires a student to open a say, Facebook account. The argument is so heated it is almost getting out of control. I am enjoying this. Privacy concerns, university policies, bla, bla, bla. Thank God this is the last session of the day. The topic has completely moved away from the Educause media itself.
