Have you ever. . .

. . .implemented something in a course that you thought would be fun and exciting, only to find that students don't appreciate the concept or the work that went into it? An article titled, "Here We Are Now, Entertain Us," in today's "Faculty Focus" has an interesting perspective. I was especially intrigued by the comment about students not wanting us (as educators) to use Facebook because they view that as "their own thing."

  1. I am not sure I agree any more with the theory that students don't want to see their profs on Facebook. The trouble with Facebook is that it is still difficult to separate the strands of your life there. Once they have that figured out I think it would be easier for everyone if some of the class social aspects happened on Facebook.

    And I think students would love to interact with their profs in a less frightening space, but do profs really want to share their entire lives with their students?
