Today's student body is made up primarily of "digital natives", while faculty members are primarily "digital immigrants". Consequently, while students are immersed in a culture of cell phones, text messaging, YouTube, wikis, social networks and other Web 2.0 technologies, many faculty still have not made the switch to these emerging technologies and use course websites and e-mail as their predominant means of connecting with their students. Are faculty missing out the opportunity to better connect with their students by not utilizing the Web 2.0 tools available today? This presentation will discuss the results of a study to assess faculty's awareness of the pedagogical benefits of Web 2.0 tools to supplement in-class learning, as well as assess faculty's decisions to adopt these tools using the Decomposed Theory of Planned Behavior.
