Flipping the classroom is a great concept which allows students to listen to or watch lectures at home and do homework assignments at school. The many benefits include more personal contact between instructor and students. This takes place while resolving assignment issues during in-class practical sessions.
The concept of social networking as a way to connect teachers and students becomes more and more relevant each day. Diipo is a case in point. This new platform is meant to be used both by educators and by students that want to take their learning one step above and beyond. Diipo favors an interface that is a sort of a hybrid from what we are accustomed to seeing when using Facebook and Twitter, and all operations are executed by using a series of dashboards and apps that make for communicating to the full.

There seem to be three forces at play when it comes to education and social media. The first is a lack of force, quite frankly - the inertia that makes many educators unwilling and uninterested in integrating the technology into their classrooms. The second is the force of fear - the pressures on the part of administrators, district officials, and politicians to curtail and ban teacher and students' interactions online.
