  • 2. Twitter? What is that?!<br />Micro Blog: The same as any other blog but with a character limit.<br />Twitter has a character limit of 140 to ease the use of text message interactivity.<br />You can follow (stalk) anyone on twitter.<br />
  • 3. Advantages of Twitter in Education<br />Send a message to the entire class instantly!<br />Use services such as twitpic and tiny url to shave pictures and videos.<br />The 140 character limit will teach students how to summarize ideas and get to the point.<br />You can search for any word and see how other people are using it.<br />Many teachers and ESL groups use twitter and give short exercises such as:<br />@englishfeed<br />@esljobproject (find jobs abroad)<br />@whytheyteach<br />
  • 4. Disadvantages of Twitter in Education<br />The 140 character limit promotes the use of internet terms such as lol, asl, brb, omg and incorrect spelling.<br />Not the best tool for in classroom activities<br />Distractions created by the other users that the student might follow.<br />The student might not find the teacher&apos;s post if he/she follows too many people.<br />

Podcasting101<br />A podcast is either a video or audio “show” released periodically via an rss feed.<br />An RSS feed (Really Simple Syndication) is a channel through where files, such as in the case of podcasting, like audio or video are syndicated onto the web.<br />Most podcasts are usually done in the form of a “talk show” and are created by normal people so anyone can be a podcaster.<br />
  • 7. A Podcast is NOT…<br />… a simple individual audio file.<br />… posting other forms such as an audiobook, television series, etc… Podcasts are mostly similar to a radio show.<br />… Grey’s Anatomy. You will never find a television show on Twitter.<br />… Youtube.<br />… an iPod. An iPod is not even needed to listen/watch a podcast.<br />
  • 8. Advantages of Podcasting in Education<br />Online classes.<br />Teach a broader audience.<br />Education on the go.<br />Students can put their podcast on a portable device and listen/watch it anywhere.<br />Pause and rewind.<br />
