“Why must the use of social media boil down to a false dilemma? If an educator embraces the tools of social media and uses those tools effectively, that does not mean she must also shun relationships or personal real world experiences.

Is it because the words themselves (social and media) are saturated with connotative baggage that conjures up images of popularity-seekers and shallow consumerism?”
