This essay examines the use of Nings as online social networks in student performance using a pre-test versus post-test data analysis. It highlights the benefits of using this type of online resource, especially for students who have proven they cannot do group work in class.
Conversely, it substantiates some of the weariness, hesitation or negativism that users may have. Let this thesis be a warning that educators who use forums and other untested or unproven sites on the internet may have higher-level students demonstrating acquired disinformation. Teachers need to be aware of this fact and prepare for it accordingly.
