Social Studying

Networks and apps augment traditional student experience

Implications - Students today have much more at their disposal than students of any other time. Along with traditional resources, contemporary learners have at their fingertips the ability to connect to other students via social networks and apps, which may help them in a variety of ways, from crowdsourcing solutions to math problems to getting live tutoring help. As an increasing number of students embrace this form of connected studying, an opportunity arises for more types of social media-based services and tools aimed at the modern learner.
