Here’s an interesting (but not surprising) twist on the ubiquitous social networking and web 2.0. Students in the UK are telling universities to leave them alone and keep out of sites like MySpace and Facebook. Stay out of MySpace. Seems like they are objecting to social networking being co-opted for academic content and communication.
“Students really do want to keep their lives separate. They don’t want to be always available to their lecturers or bombarded with academic information.” This from Jisc (Joint Information Systems Committee) that researched how online spaces are blurring boundaries.
