Twitter as a Metacognitive Support Device

Twitter as a Metacognitive Support Device | 21st Century Tools for Teaching-People and Learners | Scoop.it

Integrating social media into academia is not a novel idea. And since you are reading this, chances are you probably have been utilizing some feature of social media in the classroom for years. What is more interesting is asking why academia should exploit social media and, more specifically, Twitter.

#Satchat ~ A Great Example of Expanding Your PLN

#Satchat ~ A Great Example of Expanding Your PLN | 21st Century Tools for Teaching-People and Learners | Scoop.it

By: Brad Currie and Scott Rocco #Satchat is a great example of the power of social media in the educational realm and the benefit of expanding an educator’s Personal Learning Network (PLN).

 

The tools of the ever evolving #Satchat discussion are many. During the week Twitter’s direct messaging feature is used by @scottrrocco and @bcurrie5 as they prepare and discuss questions/topics for the upcoming chat. Then a Twitter Poll is used to survey participants about what it is they are interested in discussing during #Satchat. Daily promos are made on Twitter and also by way of an Audioboo .

 

During the actual chat Twitter for iPad, HootSuite and other Twitter tools enable participants to communicate and get their points across. After the chat Storify is used to archive the chats and make them available to those who participated. A wiki is also maintained by the very talented and co-founder of #NJED Bill Krakower @wkrakower.

So What Has Changed Since I Started Blogging and Tweeting?

So What Has Changed Since I Started Blogging and Tweeting? | 21st Century Tools for Teaching-People and Learners | Scoop.it

By Dave Meister

 

The first PHSprincipalBlog (changed to Director 4/1/2009) post was on 9/18/2007.  (332 posts overall) I have been using Twitter for 4 years, 4 month...

 

We still have a lot of work to do, but I feel more strongly than ever before that we are willing to meet the challenges to make our learning environments relevant and engaging. We have the unique opportunity to design and build a new school complex that will be both flexible and transparent and able to accommodate learning for today’s world and the challenges of tomorrow.


I AM SO GLAD I STARTED TO BLOG AND TWEET!

Twitter Basics for Students

Twitter Basics for Students | 21st Century Tools for Teaching-People and Learners | Scoop.it
Have you heard of Twitter? Do you like to tweet? Most likely you’ve utilized social networking websites such as Facebook. So why would you consider using Twitter?

 

To enhance and increase connections with classmates – and potentially your instructors, as you may not find it easy to network with students on other sites and it is very unlikely that your instructors will appear on your friends list. What if I told you that this can help you develop an academic network and support system?

 

===> By the end of this post I believe you will want to give it a try and more importantly, you’ll likely find it can be an effective personal learning network. <===
