In the article, "Social Networking" I was interested to find out that more than 1 billion people have become connected to the World Wide Web, and more than half of American teens use social networking sites. Facebook and like formats can be good sources for people to connect, but only with certain rules and etiquette.
The Neomillennial User article was hard to read at the start, but had some good information in the middle. First of all, I had to really focus on what the heck neomillennial meant. The basic idea is that the newer generation is "always on" with interactive media. Learning experiences will have to adapt technology into lessons such as RSS Feeds, Weblogs, iPods, Social Networking Sites, etc. These technologies will help develop learning communities.
The Social Software article was interesting in the fact that the article tried to show that Social Networking sites can have positive and negative aspects to using it in education. A positive is the collaboration that can happen. Students can feel like they are really working together. Unfortunately, people can be rude, vulgar, and mean on these sites. There are many examples of cyber-bullying.
