Implications and Future Directions of Social Media for Higher Education.
Abstract: We are at the dawning of a new age of new media publishing and technology. What are the implications of teaching and learning with social and mobile tools such as eBooks, Facebook, and Wikipedia? This keynote address will explore some of the immediate impacts of the e-revolution on campus culture. We’ll explore how students’ and professors’ digital proclivities, mobile devices, everyday media use habits, and the ubiquity of Facebook shape the work we do together and the experience of higher ed in Canada.
