Earlier this week, Eric Stoller proclaimed that “Social Media Increases Student Engagement” on Inside Higher Ed . He went on to describe how we have adopted all these new tools, but questions whether these tools are actually providing revolutionary results.
“Social Media are only as good as we make them. The tools themselves do not build houses nor do they increase student engagement. We do. Practitioners actively create structures that enhance engagement. If there is a “secret sauce” for using social media to increase student engagement, it’s staring back at us in the mirror.”
