More than four out of every five professors use social media. And more than half of professors use tools like video, blogs, podcasts, and wikis in their classes.
Those are some of the findings of a new national survey of nearly 1,000 faculty members released today by Pearson, the publisher.
But, while the data suggest a remarkable pervasiveness, drill deeper into how professors are using social media and a different story emerges.
Don't picture a nation of professors asking students to tweet in class. Only about 10 percent or 12 percent of survey responses represent "active" uses of social-media tools.
