This chapter highlights three technologies—social networking sites, instant messaging, and virtual worlds—all of which provide opportunities for faculty and students to interact on topics relevant to the educational experience. It discusses ways these avenues can approximate face-to-face interaction, with the general belief that face-to-face interaction is the gold standard for education. It argues that interaction with students is not lost when electronic venues are involved; indeed, they offer compelling evidence that connections and intellectual exchanges actually can be enhanced.

Keywords:   technology, social networking sites, instant messaging, virtual worlds, teacher-student interaction
