and when I say this most people say 'but I like to learn', and they obviously missed the point... think pre-language humans / post-language humans, we will take for granted that everyone masters our language, id est the sum of all human knowledge.
dephunked's comment, January 29, 2013 4:47 PM
we´ll take the worlds knowledge for granted, just like our previous language, just like our tap-water, just like we´ve always assimilated our technology and made it a part of who we are, our cultural/social identity, it´s the human condition,

Of course, it should be in system should be synced, but not as a whole. Partially, the system can be implemented. In my point of view it is must to adopt the advancement. Avoiding the thinking of classroom, the system must understand about the participation of the student.

The use of social media for learning is essential, particularly in secondary (high schools). Too many teens are engaged with social media, for fast periods of time, with no return on their investment. Schools and their pupil's would benefit from the social media angle.
