Teaching with Twitter – Please check your baggage at the door

Teaching with Twitter – Please check your baggage at the door | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

How-to’s and link roundups on teaching with Twitter has been done many times before, but the topic is worth frequent revisiting and refreshing, especially in the context of the #FutureEd initiative and the Pedagogy Project by HASTAC Scholars.

 

The goal of this review is to help think through if, why, and how to use Twitter in our teaching and learning – especially for those who remain skeptical.

Very nice sharing. Thanks

Christopher Resetar's curator insight, February 16, 2014 1:01 PM

I really like this article because it is very effective at weighing the pros and cons of using twitter in the classroom.  Some of the supplemental links are also very helpful to look at and include content on how to teach with Twitter and how to avoid some of the pitfalls that can result from using Twitter in a classroom setting.   In general, I believe strongly in helping students to develop global competency (as we have discussed in class) and I believe that Twitter is one of the best and most convenient mediums to do this.  While I am slightly apprehensive about how and if it is even possible to use Twitter in an elementary school classroom I definitely see more potential in using it after reading this article.

HOW TO: Use Twitter Lists

HOW TO: Use Twitter Lists | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Takeaway:

Twitter now has a newer list upgrade.  It is the answer to Facebook Groups.  They have always had lists, but we can now have people in lists who we DO NOT subscribe to.  We can also remove ourselves from other people's lists if we do not want to be on them.  It should be interesting:

Ken

The newly launched Twitter Lists feature allows you to group together, follow, and find Twitter users. Learn the ins and outs of this new feature in our guide.

A Useful Twitter Advanced Search Sheet for Teachers

A Useful Twitter Advanced Search Sheet for Teachers | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

The next revolution in the world of online search will probably be instigated by social media websites such as Twitter and Facebook. Both of these platforms are developing some robust search engines to serve the needs of their users. The good thing about this "social searching" is that they are based on real time interaction of people with the information being shared online. So instead of getting search results that are prioritized according to an algorithmic ranking as is the case with Google page rank and Alexa rank, now your query will be met with live feed of results pertaining to things people are talking about.

Tools for Following, Unfollowing and Managing Lists on Twitter

Tools for Following, Unfollowing and Managing Lists on Twitter | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

It’s been a while since SocialTimes did a round-up of the various tools that helped users manage their Twitter accounts by finding who to follow, following new people, unfollowing many people at once and organizing groups of users they follow into lists.

Since our last round-up, Twitter has restricted use of its API significantly, causing several tools to shut down. No longer functional areUntweeps, Just Unfollow, Twit Cleaner, Who Follows Whom and Tweet Effect. Tweeter Karma is still functional but has had to remove its bulk unfollow tools.
