I've been wondering how to implement Twitter in a controlled manner, thanks!
Carmenne K. Thapliyal's curator insight, March 26, 2013 7:03 AM

Very, very interesting and controlled !! 

khodge55's curator insight, April 28, 2013 11:21 AM

Though I do not have a Twitter, I find this very interesting.  I think that if teachers did end up using this the kids who do have a twitter would get more involved in the assignment, but I'm not sure what they'd do with the kids like me would do during this lesson.  Overall,  I think this is a really cool and unique idea that could probably done with other social networking sites aswell.

It’s Official: Using Twitter Makes Students More Engaged

It’s Official: Using Twitter Makes Students More Engaged | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it

Assistant Professor of Education at Michigan State University, Christine Greenhow, conducted a study titled “Twitteracy: Tweeting is a New Literary Practice.” In it, she found that college students who tweet as part of their instruction are more engaged with the course content, the teacher, other students, and they have higher grades.

 

“Tweeting can be thought of as a new literary practice,” said Greenhow, who also studies the growing use of social media among high-schoolers. “It’s changing the way we experience what we read and what we write.” “The students get more engaged because they feel it is connected to something real, that it’s not just learning for the sake of learning,” Greenhow said. “It feels authentic to them.”

 

“One of the ways we judge whether something is a new literary form or a new form of communication is whether it makes new social acts possible that weren’t possible before,” Greenhow said. “Has Twitter changed social practices and the way we communicate? I would say it has.”

 

===> The study appears in the research journal Educational Forum. <===
