In this presentation we will share our experiences with teaching a technology course for pre-service teachers using online social networks to enhance the course. We will begin by presenting three case studies in which two social networks were used in three different instances of the course. Finally, we will present our findings and our conclusions about social networks, how they can be used most effectively, and the advantages and disadvantages of the features in each.
