Faculty Use of Social Networks

Here’s a hot topic. With the OCLC Survey of social networks and libraries coming soon, we have this one already.
Thomson Releases Survey on Faculty and Use of Social Networks
“A preliminary look at a survey found nearly 50 percent of faculty respondents familiar with social networking technologies, including blogs, MySpace, and Facebook, say such technologies “have or will change the way students learn.” Curiously, however, about two-thirds of faculty respondents also said they do not feel social networking will have an effect on how they teach—or are at least uncertain if it will. The survey, conducted for Academic publisher Thomson Learning, reflects “a lack of awareness and understanding” of these emerging technologies, suggest administrators.”
