Also, his YouTube page (http://www.youtube.com/user/JozsefHorvath?feature=watch) contains videos on many similar issues, especially the ‘picnic in the punctuation park’ project (http://youtu.be/4Bq_X_Kg2Kc ).

During our chat, Joe mentioned eBooks as being an instance of social media.  Someone asked how?

So Joe showed us how he uses http://feedbooks.com to have students publish and comment on each other’s ebooks.  Some students get extensive feedback on their work from peers around the world.
