UW students and faculty are interested in the potential use of social media as a learning tool, even as they worry it may be a distraction in the classroom, according to a 2014 survey about technology experiences at the UW and other universities.  The survey is conducted every spring by the EDUCAUSE Center for Analysis and Research (ECAR) in conjunction with UW-IT, and findings help inform UW-IT’s plans for improving the teaching and learning experience.
