It must be the season for it! Every day I see a blog post or a tweet talking about presenting social media / web 2.0 to students. In fact, I did the very same recently.
But when we think about Web 2.0 and its applicability to the education system, we often think about enabling systems — about pushing education and content to students in an open and collaborative environment. And while this is great, it is very structured around learning. One of the clever Facebook strategies has been to enable students to systematise the LIFESTYLE aspect of studying. But what if this was applied in a new direction — back onto the college/university itself. What about your teachers? Now you can even RATE your professors. If only this was around in my day! Via etcetera.
