Academic Social Networking for Higher Ed

Today, there is no denying that we live in a social world. With sites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn becoming commonplace, more social networks like Goolge+, Pinterest and Socialspring emerge at a rapid pace. As an instructor, how do you work with these tools? How do you meet your students’ needs and desires for social interaction? How can you use Twitter to demonstrate social learning?

Even though many students use social networks to interact with their friends, you can actually use these tools in your courses to help them learn more effectively. Whether it is for a particular project or you want a way to interact with your students throughout the term, we can work with you to develop a strategy that works best for you.
