Ewbank, Ann Dutton; Foulger, Teresa S.; Carter, Heather L. – Phi Delta Kappan, 2010
Colleges of education are not using Facebook and other social media to their best advantage. Instead of building online communities, colleges of education tend to use social media merely for press releases. The innovative Facebook pages of five large corporations can serve as models for colleges wishing to improve their command of these media.

Finding a way to impress upon students how they directly connect to others around the world is a challenge. What they had for dinner, how they paid for their gasoline, and where they disposed of their Starbucks cup all provide fodder to help students see direct connections between their actions and the world around them. Consumption logs track…

Harrison, Simon; Chen, Yu-Hua – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2021
Pointing out that language policy negotiations in classroom discourse are an understudied kind of "language-related episode", and proposing that Tim Ingold's notion of "meshwork" dissolves a boundary that typically encloses their analysis, this paper examines how a rich and indicative example of student group interaction on a…

This article focuses on the contrast between the…
