  17. 17. 131 students<br />(out of almost 300)<br />8.67 months<br />79.4% male & 20.6% female<br />convenience sample<br />When<br />do you access<br />Facebook?<br />photo credit: http://www.flickr.com/photos/hikingartist/<br />
  18. 18. Even if they use it for a short time, it seems important for us to underline the fact that they do use it daily (recurrently), which can reveal a lot about a possible habit of using Facebook. <br />photo credit: http://www.flickr.com/photos/19marksdesign/5268732048/<br />
  19. 19. students prefer the English version (44,3%)<br />(some) Educational aspects<br />of using Facebook<br />57.3%<br />photo credit: http://www.flickr.com/photos/hikingartist/<br />
  20. 20. <ul><li>33,6% of them have a hard time imagining life withoutFacebook
  21. 21. 70% of the students believe Facebook is a “cheap” tool for promoting knowledge in HE
  22. 22. only26,7% of the students perceive the use of Facebook in general, and of educational groups in particular, as important instruments of change in HE</li></ul>only a little over 10% feel they belong to a community<br />photo credit: http://www.flickr.com/photos/hikingartist/<br />
  23. 23. What we do NOT particularly appreciate is the fact that the evaluation process is not as flexible as we had expected and the teacher’s intervention is needed almost permanently on the platform. <br />This causes time management difficulties, especially since teachers need to adjust their feedback to each student.<br />photo credit: http://www.flickr.com/photos/hikingartist/<br />
  24. 24. Although the majority of students claim <br />the page of a subject / facultyadds credibility,<br />just a little over 20% rely on the explosion of the social media profile,<br />while 13,7% think that teachers have to adapt <br />to this highly PersonalMediumofInteraction.<br />
  25. 25. [...] the general conclusion we have reached is: at present we cannotdefine/speak about a<br />Facebook Student in Romania<br />(here “Student” means being preoccupied<br />with aspects of his / her formal education)<br />
