Social Networking Tools in a University Setting: A Student's Perspective
Haytko, Diana L.; Parker, R. Stephen
Journal of Instructional Pedagogies, v9 Oct 2012
As Professors, we are challenged to reach ever-changing cohorts of college students as they flow through our classes and our lives. Technological advancements happen daily and we need to decide which, if any, to incorporate into our classrooms. Our students constantly check Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and other online social networks. Should we be posting course materials to these sites, or using them as communication vehicles? We asked 236 students in two states if they believe there is a use for these sites in the learning process. The answer was a definite NO. Students want to keep their social roles and their student roles separate.
