I have seen the numbers of individuals using social media more for their courses like the article pointed out. I have seen how technology has changed over the little time that I have been here. Many courses today use these technologies as part of their courses. You see classes making social media groups. A lot of times, classes will meet online and have discussions. When I was growing up in school, we did not have these resources. Even when I visit elementary school classes, some of these classes have smart boards. So our younger generations are using these technologies from preschool on. I think this is a good way to keep students active in their courses.
