Digital Literacy for Digital Natives and Their Professors | Digititus | Scoop.it

"In yesterday’s Inside Higher Ed’s technology blog, Joshua Kim wrote about 'Courses, Facebook, and Secret Groups,' in which he pointed out that 'There is a world of social learning going on, and we (meaning us instructors, educational technologists – basically anyone employed on the instructional or administrative sides of the house), know nothing about what is going on.'  He then explains how students are using Secret Groups in Facebook—as well as other technologies—to learn outside the classroom."
