  • Thanks for stopping by Eric. Your point is well taken. Perhaps I could have said 'useful' - in that they are often engaged and create tons of authentic content that other students might find helpful. Best is highly subjective - and self selecting. The connected students that find me are almost always impressive.

    I think providing diverse peer models of success is critical. That's what's great about blogging- it's open to everyone. I didn't have a chance to get into it in this presentation, but our goal is to include training on the tools in the First Year Experience seminar. This should help keep the success model pool reflective of the student body.

  • I'm a bit wary of saying that our 'best students' are using these tools. Best is extremely relative imho... And, demographically speaking, the majority of the most connected students are going to be white males which really creates a less than diverse pool of 'best' folks.

  • Well thank you, Mr. or Ms. anonymous person! I'm thrilled your students got a lot out of the presentation.

    Very kind words : )
