Social networking sites are being used regularly by millions of people; and they keep people connected through a fast, free, simple, and an accessible way. Social network applications and services have great potential in education because of their open nature, ease of use, and support for effective collaboration and communication. Today, social networking is very popular and digital natives already found social networking tools integral to daily life. Social networks could be used in education to enhance students’ learning experiences.
I delivered a presentation “Using Social Networking to Enhance Students’ Learning Experiences” at the 2010 MECA conference in Jackson, Mississippi this morning and thought the session went well. As promised, I post my presentation here. Please feel free to provide comments and suggestions. Thanks.
