Gloucestershire College makes the news on its use of social networking websites to support teaching and learning.
Social networking websites such as Facebook are helping to reduce college drop-out rates, it is claimed.
Gloucestershire College says social networking is used to keep students informed and in touch with staff.
“There has been a significant improvement in retention,” says media curriculum manager, Perry Perrott.
This is not about encouraging use of Facebook, but taking advantage of the fact that our learners are using Facebook.
