Facebook, Twitter, blogs, and podcasts are all tools used in the social media landscape. They provide citizen-generated content, venues for sharing information, and a platform for friends and family to connect. Many colleges are using these tools to market their programs to the world - not to mention keeping their own college community up to date. But how are Educators using these tools in the classroom?
