How Social media offers potential for educators and institutions

Social media tools are changing the education landscape. These tools tend to fall into two broad categories: those primarily intended for social networking, such as Facebook or Twitter, and those that are designed for sharing user-generated content such as blogs, YouTube, or Flickr. It is the mixture of informality and ease of updating that makes social media approaches so appealing, whether mainstream tools are used, or whether niche or local social media tools are installed or developed.

"At our [social media] club, we talked about it being a revolution. [social media] was going to belong to everyone, and give us power, and free us from the people who owned [newspapers, billboards, tv stations, movie theaters & brands] and all that stuff." -Steve Wozniak [on computers]
