Cool ≠ Teachers. I agree with the "written" discussion you started today at the social media session..however, I think Facebook and the Ning can be very successful if we utilize the platforms differently. What if we used them while we teach or when we delivered a session? For example, what if students posted questions on Facebook during class that were answered during class or left for others to answer outside of class?

I believe we can think of creative solutions to the issues that have been presented. What are your ideas?
