Displaying Live Tweets at Events

Displaying Live Tweets at Events | eLearning tools | Scoop.it
Displaying live tweets at events is becoming more and more commonplace, so I thought I’d take this opportunity to review some of the websites available that allow you to do this.

 

Building up a social media buzz during events has many advantages: the Twitter backchannel can provide a useful opportunity for peer networking (especially at larger events where you might struggle to meet up and chat with everyone in person); receiving instant feedback from delegates on the day; and there’s also an opening for people who are not present in person who are following the hashtag to contribute to the event with useful links, comments, etc.

The Twitter Experiment - Twitter in the Classroom

"Dr. Rankin, professor of History at UT Dallas, wanted to know how to reach more students and involve more people in class discussions both in and out of the classroom. She had heard of Twitter ..."

 

A great illustration of how social media can be used for learning. Each student has a voice using the class group hastag on twitter and the twitter stream is displayed in class for further dscussion.

NICE!

FE and Skills Development and Resources Wiki - Funding released

Launched on Friday 17th February 2012, as part of a £1.4 million project, JISC Advance is seeking proposals to enhance or repurpose existing resources to be used in the FE and Skills sector across the UK. The focus for the programme is to improve the learner experience and increase efficiency and effectiveness of providers in line with the policies for the sector being led by each of the UK governments.

 

This opportunity is two-fold and offers sector providers and agencies the chance to:
apply existing resources (from JISC or elsewhere) to their work and adapt them for their needs
identify gaps in these resources and/or current uses made of technology in the sector and create new resources for use by other providers
An initial £450,000 will be available to adapt existing resources with a further £900,000 available for development projects to address any gaps.
