Professors experiment with Twitter as teaching tool Facebook may be the social medium of choice for college students, but the microblogging Web tool Twitter has found adherents among professors, many of whom are starting to experiment with it as a teaching device. People use Twitter to broadcast bite-sized messages or Web links and to read messages or links posted by others. It can be used as a source of news, to listen to what people in certain groups are talking about, or to communicate with experts or leaders in certain fields. Marquette University associate professor Gee Ekachai uses Twitter to discuss what she's teaching in class with students and connect them with experts in the field of advertising and public relations. Instructor Linda Menck, who also teaches at Marquette, encourages students to include social media as a strategy in marketing campaigns for clients.

Teaching with Twitter: how the social network can contribute to learning | Higher Education Network I am senior lecturer in English at the University of Wolverhampton and have been an advocate for the past few years of teaching using blended learning - integrating online learning activities alongside face-to-face teaching. Two of my courses on Victorian literature feature a number of assessed online discussion forum activities. They get 100% participation - much of it enthusiastic. Online learning spaces are neutral - just like a 'real' classroom is. The important question to ask regarding e-learning is: What does an online space make possible by way of teaching that my class couldn't do face-to-face? I've only recently joined Twitter, but before I had a Twitter account I tried teaching with the spirit of Twitter. Dracula, who was already a tweeter in 'real life', immediately started 'hashtagging' - using a hashtag to mark keywords or topics and categorise tweets.

(I was also inspired by the Quavermusic Blog’s monday tip series, Thanks Abby!) So over the next few weeks I will be posting helpful and technical tips on how to make technology easy and work for you so you can use it without hesitation in your classroom. As I’ve learned over the past few years, YouTube videos have become more and more useful when showing them in class. To Make A Playlist: To make a new playlist can be quite easy once you get going. After you have hit add to, in the middle of the window just below the video there is now a list of playlists you have. Once you have found the box, type in a new name for your new playlist and decide whether you would like it a public or private list. There! Like this:

10 Awesome Twitter Analytics and Visualization Tools | Twitter Tools and Tips for Twitter Success Recently Twitter rolled out their native analytics platform for all users and now you can get some quality data about your tweets directly from Twitter. After researching over a thousand Twitter Tools for the Twitter Tools Book I came across many Twitter analytics and visualization tools. These Twitter tools were designed to add value by presenting a different way to visualize or analyze your tweets, the people in your network, and the tweets from the people in your network. Many tools tried to add value and failed. At least they tried. The following tools, however, stand out in my mind as exceptional or entertaining and I recommend you check them out if you want to analyze and visualize your activity on Twitter. 1. TweepsMap is an excellent Twitter tool for both analyzing and visualizing your Twitter network. As it’s name suggests it does this by showing you how your followers are distributed on a map, in terms of percentages. You can see the distribution of my followers below. Unique. 2.

twitter en classe: casser les codes habituels de la classe "Twitter en classe" permet, avec cette deuxième année d’usages, une diversification du réseau et un élargissement spatio-temporel qui cassent les codes habituels de la classe. - Les équipes pédagogiques des deux nouvelles classes tweeteuses sont quasi-complètes présentes sur Twitter. Il y a une vraie volonté des enseignants de ces classes à s’inscrire et participer au réseau. Et c’est à la demande des élèves. Si j’avais présenté Twitter l’année dernière aux élèves comme une expérimentation, cette année ce n’est plus le cas. Le réseau prend en comparaison à l’année dernière une force et une valeur encore plus fortes dès lors qu’il ne concerne plus un ou deux enseignants mais bien toute l’équipe pédagogique. - Le réseau s’élargit au delà du groupe classe/équipe pédagogique: les enseignants des trois équipes pédagogiques des classes qui tweetent s’abonnent à tous les comptes enseignants et élèves du lycée: le réseau ne se restreint plus à la classe et s’ouvre à la communauté du lycée.

Teaching with Twitter: 5 Resources for Getting Started The Year of Skype | Day in the Life of a Backwards Musical Mind With the new year almost upon me I have been thinking in over drive about how to make the year over the top amazing. I reflected on my sucesses over the past few years and realized Skyping with other classes across the country was something I needed to bring back this year in full force. It allows my students to connect with other students and music professionals across the globe to gain insight as to who else and what else is out there beyond the limits of our city that not many of them have ever crossed. During a Skype connection, students practice proper audience etiquette while listening to the other line. Using Skype for purposes in the elementary music classroom may seem limited at first glance, but being able to just share music with others can provide a vast set of opportunities if you keep an open mind about it.
