Here are the brainstorming results from today’s TCEA 2007 presentation on digital social networking. Participants took several minutes to brainstorm the ideas and words that came to mind (their existing schema) for digital social networking, and then we collected those ideas and put them into an Inspiration document. I exported those results as a text file, and organized them by which ideas reflected positive perceptions, which reflected negative ones, and those that were neutral (more factual):

I. positive perception
A. powerful

E. shrinking the world
F. facilitating communication
G. son met present fiance on social networking
H. about teaching and learning in non-traditional sense
I. kids as teachers
J. forcing educators to look at new delivery methods

II. negative perception

E. predator
F. generational divide
G. addictive
