Your Anti-Social Media Rant Reveals Too Much About Your Friends

Posted by Debby on 11th December in Social Media

The Atlantic posted an opinion piece that nicely responds to people who complain about social media. This is pretty much what I say to people who whine that social media is full of mediocre, meaningless crap. What you see is what you cultivate. If all you see is garbage, that says a lot about your […]

So many sites, so little time!

Posted by Debby on 13th April in Social Media

I was recently asked to recommend four social networks for educators. There are so many different sites out there, with new ones popping up all over the place.

I’ve done this a bunch of times and usually get great results. Sue was gathering information about why educators use Twitter and how it helps them. She asked for responses with […]

What are the pros and cons of having teachers use Facebook with students?

Posted by Debby on 15th December in Social Media

In October, a Pepperdine colleague of mine asked this question via Facebook Questions. There were several responses, including one that said her “general opinion about students and teachers being friends on Facebook is pretty similar to my opinion about students and teachers sleeping together: not if you’re currently in his/her class or if you plan […]
