Journey With the Ingenious Gentleman of La Mancha and his fearless followers at University of Mary Washington

Blog Post 5: Social Media

Your blog post 5, due Friday October 17th, should discuss the following:

1. You reflections on the readings–Part 1, Chapter 52 of DQ, and the article you chose about social media.  Do you see any connections?

2. What you think the role of social media is in society today, and in your life. Do you think social media has a place in education and scholarship?

Don’t forget to give your blog post a title, use some quotes (espeically from DQ) and this time I’d like you to use a featured image in your post. Make sure you use your own image, or one in the public domain, and give credit.

Lastly, I’ll do some tweeting over the next few days about issues related to our class. Take a look at my twitter page over the weekend, and respond ifyou want!
