Twitter for Learning

12,890

Published on

Did you know that over 500 million people around the world actively use Twitter today? Since its launch in 2006, Twitter has become one of the top 10 most visited websites on the Internet, and has been described as "the SMS of the Internet." In this presentation, I explore Twitter, and how it can be used for learning, teaching and research. Twitter is also a great tool to engage students in the classroom, and during large lectures. This lunch-time workshop was conducted at Unirazak on the 3 October, 2012.
