FB Gives us: Fear, Loss of Jobs & Less Teen Driving

Sunday, July 22nd, 2012

It is truly amazing how many ways Facebook impacts our culture. It causes fear for many organizations, results in real people losing real jobs, and less driving by teens, which sounds good to me. Page two suggests live streaming school events, tips for customizing learning, ignorance as a weapon, and a player piano that picks up tweets. Also check out my summary of Flip Your Classroom.
