    All I need to know about Twitter I learned at kindergarten All I need to know about Twitter I learned at kindergarten Presentation Transcript

    • All I need to know about Twitter in education I learned in Kindergarten (Twettiquette) Wolfgang Reinhardt, University of Paderborn, Germany Steve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, UK Martin Ebner, Technical University of Graz, Austria
    • What is this Twitter thing anyway? Microblogging with max. 140 characters from mobile, web or desktop client followers & following replies (@) and direct messages (DM) Retweets (RT) geolocation lists open API Reinhardt, Wheeler, Ebner (2010): All I need to know about Twitter in Education I learned in Kindergarten
    • Twitter in education Language learning with Twitter University of Shanghai Motivation for in-class discussions U.T. Dallas Facilitate process-oriented learning University of Applied Sciences Graz Teaching with Twitter http://steve-wheeler.blogspot.com
    • Share everything Play fair The rules Don’t hit people Put things back where you found them Clean up your own mess Don’t take things too seriously Say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody Wash your hands of skepticism before you start Flush Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you Life a balanced life – learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some Take a nap every afternoon When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands and stick together Be aware of wonder
    • Share everything Let others know about news, blogs, useful links, places to go... http://www.old-picture.com/united-states-history-1900s---1930s/pictures/Sharing.jpg
    • Play fair Use of RT and/or ‘via’ @ to acknowledge your sources http://p4.focus.de/img/gen/y/E/HByEXf3F_Pxgen_r_1100xA.jpg
    • Don’t hit people Keep DMs private. ‘Tweckling’ and ‘harshtagging’ can be a problem. Remember, your words carry weight. You are what you tweet... http://www.tawonga.org/blog/uploaded_images/Tawonga_Trash-Bag-Pagaent-047-704859.JPG
    • Put things back where you found them Keep it tidy using #hashtags, use URL shorteners (e.g. bit.ly) http://www.popularwealth.com/funny-pictures/messy-bedroom-03.jpg
    • Clean up your own mess Consistent use of #hashtags allows various aggregation and filtering. Using lists and other third party apps can also keep things tidy. http://allfunny.net/pics/crazykids/crazy-kids-8.jpg
    • Don’t take things too seriously Caution: Not all tweets are from friends. Some may be spam or misdirection to rogue sites. Don’t RT hyperlinks unless you know where they lead and trust the source. http://static.businessinsider.com/image/4c53108e7f8b9a41307b0000/kids-laughing-soap.jpg
    • Say sorry when you hurt someone Try to reduce misunderstandings through the use of emoticons, etc. Be quick to apologise if you offend. Respond with good humour  http://weburbanist.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/teddy-usb.png
    • Wash your hands (of scepticism) Give Twitter time to prove its value to you. It’s not instantaneous. Twitter is more about the conversation than the content. http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/sb10062550a-001/Stone
    • Flush! Made a mistake? Just repost with a correction. Delete it if you want to, so that new followers won’t see it. http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3359/3436727439_ff00dbdb52_z.jpg
    • Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you Create new friend connections and links. Go build your PLN! http://www.corbisimages.com/images/
    • Sing, dance and play Have some fun – it’s not all about the serious stuff http://www.chrisrawlinson.com/
    • Take a nap every afternoon Twitter can be quite distracting and even addictive – spend time doing other things too. http://www.websophist.com/Sleep_Baby&CatFacetoFaceM.jpg
    • Hold hands, stick together Building a personal learning network and make friends means you can grow and learn together http://media.photobucket.com
    • Stumbling upon unexpected but extremely useful content. Serendipitous learning. Be aware of wonder http://lifeslittletreasures.files.wordpress.com
