What do you think about using social media as a way of communication?

  1. I think it's important to familiarize yourself and your students to the ways they are and will be communicating for years to come. College students will tell you, however, that the "old fashioned" ways of communication, e.g., email, school websites like Blackboard and Angel, and listservs are still ways professors and students communicate.

  2. Bracinda! My sister in newly joining and learning social media. Thanks for requesting a cheat sheet. This is a fantastic resource.
    I am not too comfortable with social media. I like my privacy. However, I also want to function and grow with the world. I will cautiously proceed through the technological society.
