There has been a shift in the ways that students learn, communicate and gather information in the worlds technologically infused social environment. An antidotal look at university instruction reveals that the major vehicle of delivery still follows a strict lecture format. In this paper, a case study will be used to examine the use of social networking as used to facilitate scholarly collaboration and productivity among and between university graduate students and faculty. In a second case new and innovative instructional possibilities will be explored that are currently in use in a junior level teacher education pedagogy class. Using the tools of social networking including Chat, Twitter, Blogs and Wikis, the classroom environment is transforming into a collaborative learning experiment that better addresses student needs and learning preferences.
