UMUC LIB150 week 4 quiz 1

Directions:Use the following excerpt from an article to answer the questions below.

Magro, M. J., Ryan, K., Ryan, S. D., & Sharp, J. H. (2013) Investigating ways to use Facebook at the university level: A Delphi study. Issues in Informing Science and Information Technology, 10, 295–311.

The use of social networking sites and Facebook in particular has also generated negative perspectives. To some, Facebook serves as more of a distraction than a learning tool (Wise, Skues, & Williams, 2011), which is not an unreasonable deduction since Facebook’s primary use is as a social connection tool, and not an academic one. There are also some who wonder why one would choose Facebook over the ubiquitous Learning Management Systems (LMSs) already in place on most campuses, and this perspective includes both pro, con, and mixed results. For example, Meishar-Tal, Kurzs, and Pieterse (2012) studied the use of Facebook groups in the classroom and found that students expressed satisfaction with using Facebook in this manner and expressed their willingness to continue to do so in the future. Maranto & Barton (2010) acknowledged that the opportunity for learning is present in social networking sites, and should not be ignored, yet warned of the dangers of student/teacher “friend” relationships on social networking sites, and pointed out how many students see the encroachment of education on their social network platforms as a negative experience to be avoided. Wang, Woo, Choon, Quek, Yang, and Liu (2012) found that using Facebook groups for learning resulted in overall student satisfaction accompanied with frustration over Facebook’s privacy issues, and a lack of functionality for important tasks such as threaded discussion and multi-format document sharing. The use of Facebook associated with a course also brings up other problems. For example, although many students have Facebook accounts, not all do. Because it is not possible to require students to have a Facebook account, instructors that use Facebook often also use a university “sanctioned” tool such as Blackboard or Moodle. Ensuring that the LMS and Facebook are synchronized in terms of content can be laborious. This can mean double the work for the instructor. Privacy can also be an issue regarding the use of Facebook. Although Facebook does provide an option to create “secret” groups, in which no one outside the group can see who is in the group, postings, or even that the group exists, some students may be reticent to join because of their country of origin or even religious reasons (Ryan et al., 2011).
