I can see where social networking in education could be a useful supplement; however, that is all it would be is a supplement. When strolling through social media, I often just look at pictures, updates, videos, some articles, ect. But from an educational standpoint, I seriously doubt I would stop and read an article that my teacher posted unless it was required. Adding social media discussions on top of reading assignments, homework, projects, could become a hassle. It just another thing us students would have to check to make sure all assignments are being completed.
