    you know what hits me about this is that we need to consider lowering our sights on the technology that we promote campus wide to faculty and use the peer tutoring method to engage more faculty in the common easy to use technologies. Still work on the emerging tech with the tech savy and work more one-on-one with the biggest chunk of faculty using/exploring other technology. Did I just define 3 levels of engagment with faculty? hhmmmm

HigherEdMorning.com » Blog Archive » Study: How Twitter is hurting students - 0 views

    I disagree with this article - first, there isn't sufficient data, and I think it all depends in how Twitter is used. I tend to think of Twitter as more of a collection space of ideas and links. What I think is flawed in the research is that Twitter doesn't provide context (source of previous knowledge) or sufficient data for the brain to chunk or organize. I think the author is comparing the effectiveness of a wrench and a hammer while viewing a nail.
