Perspectives on the Integration of Facebook Into Higher Education

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapportKonferenceartikel i proceeding


This paper introduces findings in my PhD research, entitled "Learning Potentials Integrating Social Media or Web 2.0 in a Problem-Based Learning Approach". I have followed three teachers who have begun integrating Web 2.0 activities into their teaching. The main focus in this paper is one of these cases, where the teacher presents ?unlimited supervision? using Facebook as a tool to support the initiated activity of online supervision unlimited. There have so far been two iterations in this case, and in this paper I will try to both illustrate how the case has progressed and give a view of my preliminary findings. I would like to discuss how social media like Facebook could be integrated into teaching approaches; this integration could be discussed in terms of whether or not it is beneficial for educational collaboration and sharing perspectives within a problem-based learning approach.
