■Social media enhances classroom interaction, communication
Jonathan Golding, a University of Kentucky psychology professor, in this blog post shares his experiences using Facebook to create a sense of community in large classes. Facebook changed the rules of communication in his class, Golding writes, by creating interaction among students and by providing him with a way to communicate with students outside of class. "Also, for the first time with my large class, I had a similar sense of community as I have enjoyed when teaching a small class," Golding writes.
