Understanding and Accommodating Online Social Communities: A Common Sense Approach
Lennon, Sean M.
Educational Forum, v77 n3 p342-350 2013
Online social networks such as Facebook have changed the context and definitions of socialization. Focusing on teacher use, this article considers the size and impact of these forums and the importance many young professionals feel toward them. Themed as a common sense approach, the author uses anecdotal points and discussions with teacher-educators in examining possible ideas that may foster teacher buy-in and compliance toward institutional-level policy.
