10 New Ways Twitter Is Changing The College Lecture

10 New Ways Twitter Is Changing The College Lecture | Kenya School Report - 21st Century Learning and Teaching | Scoop.it

Continuing our theme of using Twitter in education this week, we bring you a look at the ways Twitter is causing the current lecture model to evolve. The following analysis is brought to you by our content partners over at Online Universities.

 

Gone is the time when PowerPoint was the most impressive communication technology in the lecture hall. These days, students and professors enjoy the power of Twitter, a tool that allows for digital discussions to supplement and even guide lecture sessions. So how exactly is Twitter changing the college lecture as we know it?

 

Read on to find out about 10 different ways.

 

- Mobile devices are welcome in the lecture hall once again

- Lectures become a conversation

- Bashful students are speaking up

- More students get connected in large lectures

- Students stay engaged beyond the lecture

- Dorm discussions don’t happen as much anymore, and that’s OK

- There’s more information saved now than ever before

- Students think about lectures even when they’re not at school

- Review sessions happen anywhere

- Fewer classroom disruptions exist

What Type of Learner Are You? [Infographic]

What Type of Learner Are You? [Infographic] | Kenya School Report - 21st Century Learning and Teaching | Scoop.it

As practitioners will already know, the way that one learner studies may differ from the way that a classmate does, because of their different styles of learning.

 

The four types are...

- visual learners,
- auditory learners,
- read and write learners, and
- kinesthetics learners.

 

Each function is clearly illustrated and explained in this infographic produced by onlinecollege.org.

 

Learning suggestions, and which tests the learner types are likely to excel in better than others, are provided.

 

This is a helpful guide for...

- IAG Practitioners

- Learners

- Initial Teacher Training

- educators, especially those who are adamant that there is only one way to revise.

10 Incredibly Powerful Teaching Tools of the Future | Edudemic | Kenya School Report - 21st Century Learning and Teaching | Scoop.it
