A little birdie told me …

Welcome back and happy new year!

Here is an article to start 2013. Do you face up to things or just tweet? John Carlin in El Pais has an interesting article discussing the differences between facebook and twitter as social media and the kinds of people who prefer one to the other. Narcissists go for twitter and exhibitionists facebook … which are you? I prefer to sit on the wall and cover both, just in case. What I still don’t know is how to approach effectively using them in class / with students. In fact, for the moment, my doubt is whether or not they should be incorporated into my teaching. The classroom should certainly not deny innovations in the outside world, but does it necessarily have to include them all?
