Redes sociales para cursos: invasión a privacidad de los estudiantes

En el Chronicle of Higher Education se publica una nota donde algunos estudiantes entienden que la creación de cursos utilizando Facebook, Twitter y oras herramientas de redes sociales puede considerarse como una invasión a su privacidad virtual.
"A growing number of professors are experimenting with Facebook, Twitter, and other social-networking tools for their courses, but some students greet an invitation to join professors’ personal networks with horror, seeing faculty members as intruders in their private online spaces. Recognizing that, some professors have coined the term “creepy treehouse” to describe technological innovations by faculty members that make students’ skin crawl."
“Though such systems may be seen as innovative or problem-solving to the institution, they may repulse some users who see them as infringement on the sanctity of their peer groups, or as having the potential for institutional violations of their privacy, liberty, ownership, or creativity,” Mr. Stein wrote.
Debemos reflexionar sobre la utilización de estas herramientas en nuestros cursos por la percepción que pueden tener los estudinates sobre el propósito de su uso.
