1. Thank you for bringing up this issue in a blog post.
    I too am finding that certain social media and even internet links to surveys, such as the MetLife Survey on teacher’s work, are being discouraged as sources in scholarly work. I agree with you that the boundaries are blurring and that we need to adjust to contemporary modes of communication and knowledge sharing.

    You raise an interesting point. A part of the transition to interconnected learning, it’s imperative for schools to encourage and respect the use of real-time web based resources. I’ve noticed your posts include more quotes from presenters and authors, thus provided support for your comments. As more people use this format to blog, I believe teachers/professors may be more accepting of web-based resources.

    As always, thanks forgiving us something to think about!

    Be Great,
