Vast Majority of Professors Are Rather Ludditical

Commentary by Stephen Downes

I don't know why Anya Kamenetz is surprised to find most professors don't use social media tools. Check their age, then poll the general population of that age, and you'd probably find similar trends. It's not that they're not trained (come on, this software is dead simple to use; small children teach themselves) it's just what they're doing now is working for them (alter all, they are university professors!) and there's no real reason to change. Change will not come from within the system, certainly not when change undermines the system.
