Transcript

  • 1.  If You Twitter, Will They Come? › Summary continued › Personal reflection  Professor Encourages Students to Pass Notes During Class — via Twitter › Summary continued › Personal reflection  Tweets for Teachers. › Summary continued › Personal reflection  Conclusion
  • 2.  Charles Hodges writes about a study conducted where Twitter was used to keep students update. › This information ranged from: lab hours, in class sessions (for those taking online classes), tutor sessions for a certain courses and much more. › The study indicated that only 65 students has subscribed to the Twitter account. But numbers show that many of them did indeed use social networking sites, almost daily. › The Twitter account ended a semester after it ended. Return to menu Hodges, C. B. (2010, November 2). If you Twitter, will they come? EDUCAUSE Quarterly (EQ), 33. Retrieved from http://www.educause.edu/EDUCAUSE+Quarterly/EDUCAUSEQuarterlyMagazineVolum/ IfYouTwitterWillTheyCome/206544
  • 3.  According to the survey › 65% received the Twitter updates › 6% used the updates to go to tutor sessions › 89% use social networking to talk to peers about academics › 44% would not welcome faculty participation in online social networks › 50% would not welcome administrators in online social networks Return to menu Hodges, C. B. (2010, November 2). If you Twitter, will they come? EDUCAUSE Quarterly (EQ), 33. Retrieved from http://www.educause.edu/EDUCAUSE+Quarterly/EDUCAUSEQuarterlyMagazineVolum/ IfYouTwitterWillTheyCome/206544
  • 4.  I believe that if the Twitter account was used more often and the students truly knew about it, then it would have been more successful.  Using social networking sites are always tricky because you never know how the students are going to react to them.  Like the survey showed, they were not comfortable sharing their personal sites with faculty and administrators.

  • 5.  Jeff Young writes about a professor who encouraged his students to tweet during lecture.  This professor wanted his students to share their thoughts and ideas on the topic with everyone else in the class.  Many people asked “Doesn’t this cause problems?” or “Don’t your students get distracted?” Return to menu Young, J. (n.d.). Professor Encourages Students to Pass Notes During Class — via Twitter. Retrieved from http://chronicle.com/blogs/wiredcampus/ professor-encourages-students-to-pass-notes-during-class-via- twitter/4619
  • 6.  The professor noted that once students got the hang of what it was they were suppose to do, they didn’t abuse their new found “power”.  The use of Twitter worked very well in this professors classroom and he plans to continue on the use of Twitter. He hopes to someday have two screens, one to show lecture notes and the other to broadcast the live Twitter stream. Return to menu Young, J. (n.d.). Professor Encourages Students to Pass Notes During Class — via Twitter. Retrieved from http://chronicle.com/blogs/wiredcampus/ professor-encourages-students-to-pass-notes-during-class-via- twitter/4619
  • 7.  I believe that this professor gave his students a voice. Sometimes students don’t want to speak up in class and I believe that begin able to post it on Twitter allows their voice to be heard a little more. Return to menu Tweet?
  • 8.  Study results by ComScore(comscore.com) › Most users of microblogging (Twitter) are over 35. › College students only make up 10.6%  A report in June conducted by HubSpot (hubspot.com) showed › a little over 50 % of Twitter's millions of users have never posted a tweet or followed anyone.

  • 9.  A researcher conducted a study and set up Twitter accounts for a group of teachers. › This study showed that many teachers didn’t know how to use twitter or didn’t know what to use it for. › After the study was completed many of the teachers knew how they wanted to use Twitter and implemented it in their classrooms.  One teacher had her students tweet their class work.  Ie. Daily Oral Language( practicing grammar) or posting ideas they had to discuss in class. Return to menu Demski, J. (2010, February). Tweets for Teachers. T H E Journal, 37(2).

  • 10.  I found this article very interesting. This article showed that when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. This quote from the article stuck out to me:  I agree with what Larkin said. You just have to try in order to know what Twitter is really about. Like the study showed once the teachers got used to it they began to implement Twitter in their classroom. Return to menu "I don't think you can really get a grasp of"I don't think you can really get a grasp of what Twitter's all about until you go onlinewhat Twitter's all about until you go online and get immersed in it and take part in aand get immersed in it and take part in a discussion.“ -Larkindiscussion.“ -Larkin
  • 11.  This PowerPoint has given summaries of three different articles and they are about the use of Twitter in education. The two articles that address the classroom setting specifically showed a great response to Twitter. The teachers even got involved by discussing ideas for classes their fellow teacher on Twitter.  Like the quote from the last slide said “I don't thinkI don't think you can really get a grasp of what Twitter's allyou can really get a grasp of what Twitter's all about until you go online…” By just giving Twitter aabout until you go online…” By just giving Twitter a try, you are opening your resources up to just moretry, you are opening your resources up to just more than just the rest of your peers/staff/other teachers.than just the rest of your peers/staff/other teachers.
