Teaching Responsibly with Technology-Mediated Communication
Veltsos, Jennifer R.; Veltsos, Christophe
Business Communication Quarterly, v73 n4 p463-467 Dec 2010
Technology-mediated communication, or "new media," such as blogs, Twitter, wikis, and social network sites, can be an endless source of ideas for activities or inspiration for classroom discussion. Many instructors ask students to monitor current events by following keywords and industry leaders on Twitter and reading both corporate and trade blogs and then synthesize the information into their work. As educators consider the impact of technology-mediated communication (TMC) on the business communication classroom, they also need to be aware of the problems it can cause, including issues involving privacy, intellectual property violations, data security, and violations of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. This article presents some suggestions to protect educators and their students.
