Impact of Social Networking in the Classroom

Posted by · 1 Comment 

What an incredible week it has been for showing the impact of the Internet!

Two weeks after the people of Tunusia used Twitter, Facebook, texting and other modern communications tools to coordinate the revolution and overthrow of their government, citizens began protesting governments elsewhere in the Middle East and beyond. No one knows what the impact of these protests will be.

While the headlines this week are an extreme example of the impact of social networking, they do highlight the power of collaboration and information dissemination that the Internet and web 2.0 tools offer to teachers and our students.

How do you use Web 2.0 tools and social networking in your teaching practice?

We’d love to hear about how social networking and other Web 2.0 tools are impacting your teaching practice.
