#EDU6333 Trying to get organized on Twitter, using lists

In this post, I'd like to talk about the benefits of using Twitter lists and some smart ways you can leverage them for marketing purposes. Rules of using Twitter lists First thing first, from the horse’s mouth straight, here are the rules by which to play when using Twitter lists. Perhaps it's worth reminding that Twitter lists can be public (visible to everyone and searchable on Google) and private (visible only to you). Besides, Twitter recently expanded the number of lists one is allowed to have, as well as the number of accounts to add to a list.

Needless to say, these changes present new online reputation management and social listening opportunities to social marketers.

When a student tweets at their school’s Twitter handle, chances are they don’t expect a response–it’s like tweeting at Starbucks, or the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency—you feel like you’re talking to an entity that’s far too busy and important to ever respond to you.

#EDU6333 As I learn how to Twitter effectively, I struggle with how or when to use it this post from #edusocmedia

That’s why students in Georgia’s Cherokee County School District were so surprised when they tweeted their district, begging for a snow day—and their district tweeted right back. Not only did the district respond, but the responses were sassy and high-spirited. When one student asked why the district was ruining her life, the district responded, “I have the club for you: drama. #EDU6333 Are we ready?

Teachers' Favored Web 2.0 Tools

(When school’s in session, #EdTechChat can log up to 2,000 tweets during the hour with several hundred participants.) Susan Bearden, Sharon Plante, and I co-moderated this week’s discussion on Web 2.0 tools, asking tweeps to share the benefits and challenges of using Web 2.0 tools, which ones are their favorites, and where they go to find new resources. One of the most retweeted tweets captures why educators incorporate Web 2.0 tools into their classrooms: “@julnilsmith: Web 2.0 tools make students MAKERS - not just MEMORIZERS. “ Many other participants echoed that these kinds of tools can expand opportunities for students-- particularly by providing them with an authentic audience and allowing them to collaborate with peers worldwide.

When choosing which tools to try, @MrStaubSTEM summed it up best: “The best edtech is the one you can use effectively that meets the needs in your classroom. . ” · Animoto · Aurasma · Diigo. 09 1.
