Integrating Twitter into the classroom Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Integrating Twitter into the classroom Dr. Matt J. Duffy Berry College @mattjduffy
  • 2. Why do this?  What I tell my students:  You shouldn’t graduate with a comm degree if you don’t know how to use Twitter  Important to enter workforce with a Twitter presence  Consider having two accounts  one professional, one for fun  What I’m hoping for:  Increased comprehension of laws, concepts  Understanding of pervasiveness of law issues
  • 3. Twitter basics  Hashtags allow users to have conversations about common themes  #COM4470  Starting a tweet with a @handle means only people that follow you and that person will be able to see tweet  So, you don’t have to clog up your twitter feed with hashtag-specific comments  Very important!!!
  • 4. Incorporating Twitter hashtag into classroom  Twitterfall  Before class  Discussion of Twitter posts at beginning of classes.
  • 5. Grading  Five percent of grade  Students required to tweet three times  At least one post must be to something related to media law  Other tweets can address other posts  Students should show understanding of some media law issue with posts  Open-access Google Docs spreadsheet records participation
  • 6. Storify
  • 7. What would I do differently?  Increase grade percentage  10 percent instead of 5 percent  40 percent of students didn’t participate  Stress more discussion among themselves  Like which way would a case likely go?  What evidence would sway case?
  • 8. The End!  Slides and storify available at www.mattjduffy.com  Matt J. Duffy, PhD  Berry College  Rome GA  Teach journalism, multimedia storytelling
