  • So, throughout this presentation, please, think about how you would use Twitter in learning. If you have an idea, let us know! We all want to hear it.
  • Microblogging is a lot of things. Microsharing? At its most basic, it’s a way of communicating with a community of friends, or followers, in 140 characters or less. You can use Twitter.com, Pownce.com, your mobile phone via SMS, via IM, or various third-party applications. Twitter is often called microblogging. You aren’t always at your computer to blog – you can usually be near a mobile phone to Twitter. You can’t develop meaningful relationships without real-time conversation, which you can get with Twitter.
  • Isn’t Twitter annoying? I don’t get it! How is it different from IM? Everyone who uses Twitter hears these questions periodically. Here are my thoughts, right or wrong: - Join in or leave the conversation when ever you want. - Get out of it what you put into it. Follow others and contribute. - Share links. Spread news. (our earthquake. China quake, etc) - Learning from experts. Connecting with experts. (Job, bub.blicio.us) - Face to face tweetups - It all leads to Community and community building
  • Twitter flattens the org chart – access to experts, conversations with experts. Everyone is equal on Twitter.
  • Surrounded by friends and people you don’t know. Flitting from one conversation to another, meeting new people. Coming into the middle of one conversation or another.
  • 1.Connections – job, access to experts. 2. Technical Support / Advice on anything 3. New friends that extend past the virtual 4. Community So, how do we take this and extend it to learning?
  • So, how do we take this and extend it to learning?
  • Ignite Social Media 2008 Social Media Traffic Analysis Report: Nov 2008 http://www.ignitesocialmedia.com/2008-social-network-analysis-report/
  • At the end of March 2009, Comscore reported that unique worldwide visitors to Twitter approached 10 million in February 2009, up an impressive 700+% vs. the same period in 2008. - Worldwide visitors climbed more than 5 million visitors in the first two months of 2009. Growth has fallen from a high of 13% per month in March of 2009 to 3.5% in October 2009, the most recent month for which we have compiled data. - Interesting point: this is just Twitter.com and doesn’t include people using desktop applications or mobile devices to access twitter
  • Questions?
  • Please do not protect your updates now. For our purposes, it will be easier to work with a public account for the next two hours. You may go back in and protect your account at any time in the future by clicking Settings on Twitter.com.
  • Surrounded by friends and people you don’t know. Flitting from one conversation to another, meeting new people. Coming into the middle of one conversation or another.

  • Going Mobile – taking the learning outside the classroom. The #1 advantage to microblogging is that it breaks boundaries - you are no longer confined to a computer and can explore the world. Twitter (et al) allows you to use any number of third party programs or simple text messaging on your mobile phone, no matter where you are.
  • Don’t tweet and drive – use these alternatives
  • Customer support (Comcast, Whole Foods)
  • Brand awareness (Zappo’s, Southwest
  • David Parry, an assistant professor of emerging media and communications at the University of Texas at Dallas, says he was reluctant to try the technology. Mr. Parry's first instinct was that Twittering would encourage students to speak in sound bites and self-obsess. But now he calls it "the single thing that changed the classroom dynamics more than anything I've ever done teaching .” Last semester he required the 20 students in his "Introduction to Computer-Mediated Communication" course to sign up for Twitter and to send a few messages each week as part of a writing assignment. He also invited his students to follow his own Twitter feed, in which he sometimes writes several short thoughts — not necessarily profound ones — each day.
  • Example of something creative being done with Twitter
  • Both formal and informal Learning by accessing executives / gurus. You can follow the big names. For instance, when it comes to Web 2.0, I follow Geoff Livingston, Chris Brogan, Brian Solis, and Jason Falls, amongst others. What is often surprising to me is when they follow me back. Twitter flattens the org chart. Your CEO can twitter and in the process, chat with employees that also Twitter. Suddenly, everyone is just a Twitterer. It's a great way to learn from the experts or access the executive tier.
  • Polling
  • Twitter can provide instant feedback. It's great for question and answer. Recently, Geoff Livingston was guest lecturing at University of Maryland. He asked Twitter - what advice would you give students for graduation? He received tons of responses, live, which were shared with his students instantly. Another Twitterer once demonstrated the power of instant feedback by asking Twitterers to call him on his cell phone while he was giving a presentation. The constant flow of calls was so much he had to beg folks to stop calling him. His point was well proven. This can also be used with GroupTweet to pick a specific distribution list for your question tweets. Teaching moment of the day" tweets or posts. Students can tweet/micoblog a brief message each day they're in practicum about something of interest or something that happened during their practicum experience. These tweets can serve as the basis for class discussions, or can help the teacher educator as a sort of "temperature taking" mechanism in order to keep connected with the students' practicum experiences. A log of these tweets could be valuable for students in their reflection on practicum experiences at the end of the course. Continuing conversations . Our class discussions are often (always?) limited by our time together in a common physical space. Of course we have online discussion forums where we can "continue" these conversations, but these are asynchronous and fairly formal in presentation and format. Microblogging could be used to continue the conversation on a more informal, synchronous basis as thoughts occur. Because it is so quick and easy to "say" something, a student doesn't have to log into a course management system and write out their thoughts. Collaborative planning . In our teacher education courses, we often have students forms teams or pairs and plan lessons together. As students come up with ideas for their co-planned lessons, they could microblog or tweet these ideas and in doing so accomplish two things: 1) create a record of the idea, and 2) share the idea with their partner or team.  "Teaching anytime" . I often think of ideas or things to bring up in class discussions when I'm not in class. By using a microblogging platform, a teacher educator could tweet these ideas as they occur, thus extending the notion of the "teachable moment" beyond the walls of the classroom.  Broadening the teacher education course community . We all have colleagues with whom we collaborate about our teaching. If some of these colleagues were willing and interested to be a part of the course group, they could chime in on relevant discussions within the group, and act as external friends or advisors. Further, former students might act as friends of the group and join in. Their experiences, just shortly removed from the course, would be valuable for the students.  General reflection facilitation : students can reflect on the course or their experiences at any time and keep a record of these reflections by microblogging them. We know that the reflective practitioner is constantly reflecting on their practice and experience. Microblogging can help to instill this practice in teacher education students.

  • Group Tweet Community, closeness, connected, bonding, a sense of community adds commitedness, bonding
  • Twitter gets all the glory but Pownce might even work better for corporate education: Sharing multimedia Friend lists
  • 4Square GoWalla Dry Cleaners, Mayorships,
  • Twitter gets all the glory but there are others
  • Indenti.ca, built on the open-source microblogging platform Laconi.ca

  • According the paper, there has been an uptick in this sort of corporate communication as the economy has a downturn and corporations cut back on travel costs. Concurrently, employees see the collaboration, networking, problem-solving and other productivity benefits of web 2.0 tools and want to apply them at work. These tools directly contribute to knowledge capture and management as workforces are scaled back and baby boomers retire, and they boost motivation and retention, especially among millennial generation employees. CIO magazine’s October survey of 243 IT executives found three-quarters plan to freeze or cut their IT budgets. There is a critical need for cheaper, more versatile ways for information to flow within the enterprise. Enterprise-grade versions of Twitter may be the low-cost solution that fills this need. By researching 19 microsharing tools and their uses, the team came up with several key findings, including that your employees are probably already using some sort of microsharing tool and that these tools should also communicate with the “gold standard” of Twitter. The report goes on to define, and classify, these 19 different tools, listing advantages and disadvantages of each. Finally, they list the questions they asked users of these tools. Microsharing for organizational communication and collaboration fundamentally changes how employees interact with others and grow their professional capacity. Microsharing connects people in ways that promote mutual support, rapid networking, inspiration, mentoring and idea exchange.
  • Edmodo – if you want a private feed (walls). If you want to tear down walls, then Twitter We feel the ease of use that microblogging platforms provide makes it a better way to communicate with students than the tradition blogging platform. Traditional blogging platforms are designed to communicate long posts to a large group of people. Microblogging platforms are really designed for interaction and communication in short posts and we feel that is an advantage to a teacher in getting their students to interact in classroom activities. Some of the more interesting features, beyond the standard community and conversation, are the ability to tag a post for future reference. As you may be familiar, in Twitter, you can favorite something. This is a step above that, adding a del.icio.us-like capability to the app. You can also share media files, such as images or videos. Media sharing is one of the advantages that Pownce has over Twitter, and I'm glad to see that Edmodo incorporated this option for education. “ Built on PHP and MySQL Edmodo enables users to create groups and share files, links, embedded videos and images along with alerts, assignments and events. Alerts enable user to set quick notices over email and eventually SMS text message.” This is not just a tool for the teachers, it’s a tool for students to ask questions either within the classroom timeline or pose to the teacher directly. Teachers can use Edmodo to have their students submit their assignments. There is also a calendar that teachers can use to post events and assignment due dates. Edmodo is designed with privacy in mind but it also gives the teacher the ability to make anything public at his or her discretion. Another thing, Edmodo is not a finished product, we still have ideas to bring additional classroom features to the platform in the future. Things such as a grade system & parent interaction. Grades will be a little tricky as we want to be compatible with other grade-book systems that a teacher may already be using. The other major difference between this and Twitter is the diversity of what you can share. You aren’t limited to 140 characters, but the size of the bubble really encourages you to keep things brief. However, you can share text, links, and files. You can even embed things into the text area, which opens up an entirely new world of possibilities (see the screencast demo for an example of this). If you’re a teacher, you can also post alerts, assignments and events, which each have their own dedicated boxes along the right hand side.
  • Paul Mabray, Inertia: I call it the Twitter of business.  It is twitter but available only to who you invite to the network.  A way to have public conversations in private.  We have 45 people that work at Inertia.  45 hard working and prolific writers.  We use Yammer to remove the email chatter that normally occurs in an organization our size and a public chat room for departments trying to solve problems as a group.  To give a few examples, we announce internally whenever someone's blog is chosen for the front page of WineBusiness.com.  What follows is a stream of email congratulations that rams our already full mailboxes.  With Yammer, we get to achieve the same effect without the unnecessary white noise. From New Media Campaigns (http://www.newmediacampaigns.com/page/using-yammer-to-communicate-within-our-company): There are some really killer features in Yammer that have already made it somewhat of a "sticky app," and quickly made us realize that their team did more than just copy Twitter and that this is a product with a longterm viability: Instant Messenger Interface . Everyone in the office is on G Chat all day long, and it was a cinch to set up Yammer to interface with G Chat or any other IM client you might use. Now, whenever someone in the company posts to Yammer, I get a g chat with the post and the option to respond or send my own, separate post. Makes it so I can stay up to date with everyone without having Yammer take up any of my valuable screen or browser tab real estate. File Attachments to Posts. You can attach a file to each post, which makes it extremely easy to share files across the office. When wanting team feedback on a design earlier, I simply posted the design and waited for the feedback to roll in. Very easy to do and guaranteed instant responses. All past files are neatly stored in a Files tab accessible from the main Yammer interface too! Organizing Groups . One of the first thing our developers did was organize the Tech Group with the simple instructions: "Nerds only plz." Other NMC nerds (their words, not mine) can sign to receive updates from that group via SMS, IM, or regular Yammer. Also, members of the group can send out messages intended for that group only. This is helpful as I don't want to have to read nitty gritty technical details about scripts, jQuery techniques , or Kris' new PHP framework all day long. Now these posts will just go to their relevant audience. Tags . Similar to Twitter, a # in Yammer denotes a tag for a certain event or topic. However, these tags also handily accumulate in a section of the Yammer site, allowing you permament access to posts about a certain tag. Want to jump to that post about a week ago on PHP? Just hop over to the Tags, find PHP and locate the specific post you're looking for.

  • TMI Twitter is forever. Watch what you tweet. Separate business from personal? More privacy? Lock your profile. Hard to express things in limited characters Lack of sustained narrative Possible reliance on someone else’s servers (ident,i.ca and others are open source) Missing “tweets”
  • TMI Twitter is forever. Watch what you tweet. Separate business from personal? More privacy? Lock your profile.
  • Twitter has occasional downtime. They grew too big too fast. They have just received a third round of funding, developed a supposed sustainable business plan, and plan to use the infusion of cash to create a stable platform.
