Here are some interesting articles published recently by Educause Review.
1) An article on the growing use of podcasts in education. The article discusses what podcasting is, how to do it, and explores a few of the possible uses in the educational setting.
2) An article on the use of IM (instant messaging) in education. With many of our students working off-campus, IM is a great way for them to remain connected to other students and to their instructors. IM can also be useful for managing group projects. And, the Library can now be contacted through IM, too!
3) An article on the Net Gen, also called the Millenials or Generation Y. These are our newest students, the ones coming right out of high school. Learn what makes them tick and how to engage them in the classroom.
