In this post are several links to resources and examples related to the presentation that Harriet Schwartz (who writes The Encouragement Lounge, a blog for her adult learners) and I gave at this year’s AHEA conference.
First, a must read is Harriet’s article that was published in The Chronicle of Higher Education titled Facebook: The New Classroom Commons? Congratulations Harriet!
And, if you are new to these tools and would like to learn about a variety of them and their uses in general, feel free to browse Marylhurst 2.0, the course blog that I created to support the Introduction to Social Media course I taught this past summer. Topics and resources include Twitter, YouTube, social bookmarking, LinkedIn, RSS, and many more.
