Pearson Study Finds 4 Out of 5 U.S. Professors Use Social Media Reply

Pearson, in a survey of its customers, finds that 4 out of 5 U.S. Professors are using social media in some way.  Education 2.0 seems to perhaps be moving into the mainstream?  Not really.  Most professors seem to use social media in a very low-level way (e.g., as an information source).  The principles of engagement and discussion are not pursued by the overwhelming majority of respondents.  The survey sampled 10,000 profs/instructors for a 9.39% response rate.
