Selling Social Networks

This article, Go with the Flow: Selling Social Networks has some good information for answering some of the following questions about using social networks in the classroom.
  • How can social software enhance learning?
  • While using Web-based programs, can students stumble upon inappropriate sites?
  • How can we prevent students from disclosing personal information online?
  • What about students using the technology for nefarious purposes?
  • Do outsiders have access to the Web site the students are using and, thus personal information?
  • What about the cost?
If nothing else, it may get conversation started in your building.
