I have had to jump over a few hurdles in order to bring social media into some of my university teaching. Aspects of privacy are usually the hardest to circumvent.
Reading this article though is sure to raise educators' and learners' hackles...after all the effort of bringing social media into a classroom and developing skills of transliteracy (so students and educators can employ the tools in a meaningful and life-long learning context), Sam Houston State University is setting back all that work.
Their draft social-media policy is requiring that ANYONE with a campus-related Twitter, Facebook or other online account give administrators editing privileges. RIDICULOUS! To give someone editing privileges means they have full access to all of your data, and they can alter your information (your tweets, your Facebook status, even your privacy settings).
