It’s really the latest trend right now, social media. .I think we should participate in order for us to be part of the world. We can do interesting ways through social media. Thank-you for sharing this blog and your concerns, which I know will be echoed throughout the nation by fellow educators.

As a K-12 teacher, this was fun to read. When universities and colleges incorporate social media into faculty and student life it generates greater communication among all! Just look at what is happening in Egypt and Tunisia, groups of youth used social media to organize and inform the world!
