My Definition of Social Media
Interesting ideas I am coming up with. I got into a discussion with our tech committee head about "social media." His first reaction was, "can't do it, Facebook is going to be blocked." I argued, that social media doesn't have to be just Facebook. Maybe I am wrong. I feel social media can be used in the 1:1 or blended classroom (even with Facebook blocked) because anytime you have students collaborating together, able to comment on each other's work, using Web 2.0 tools, etc, you are dealing with "social media." Correct me if I am wrong.
