13 ways Twitter Improves Education

13 ways Twitter Improves Education | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

Here’s some ammunition for what often turns into a pitched, take-sides verbal brawl as well-intended teachers try to come to a compromise on using Twitter (in fact, many of the new Web 2.0 tools–blogs, wikis, websites that require registrations and log-ins, discussion forums. You can probably add to this list) that works for all stakeholders

How I use Twitter in my classroom UPDATE 2

How I use Twitter in my classroom UPDATE 2 | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

After two articles in the irish papers (links below) where I was asked about how I use twitter in my classroom, I decided to detail what exactly I do, so that it’s a little clearer.

 

Before I begin though we have to talk about fear. There’s so much fear about the educational value of twitter from teachers, managers, parents and students that some might be worried about entering that lion’s den. My answer to these fears is simple: the internet is where kids are, schools have to go there. It was video for an earlier generation and tv before that. It was probably radio once and I’m sure some Greeks were worried about writing things down rather than learning them by heart. Students will always be ahead of us, so why not meet them there, rather than dismiss them as fad-followers or time-wasters?

The power of Twitter - How I became a convert to Twitter

The power of Twitter - How I became a convert to Twitter | eLearning tools | Scoop.it
I signed up for Twitter several years ago but struggled to understand the point. What is it? What is it for? What information can I share in 140 characters? I did what millions of other people do: followed famous people, sportsmen, rappers, comedians and actors. Much of the time, it turned out, they didn't have anything that interesting to say and, after a few weeks, I gave up on it.

 

Then, as the site grew in popularity, I decided to give it another chance. I had about 30 followers, mostly my friends. Every few days I would tweet about what I was doing and share songs, music videos and news articles and now and again I would tweet one of the many musicians I followed. Good fun but not particularly productive.

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.

Twitter: How to archive event hashtags and create an interactive visualization of the conversation

Twitter: How to archive event hashtags and create an interactive visualization of the conversation | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

The use of Twitter to collecting tweets around an event hashtag allowing participants to share and contribute continues to grow and has even become part of mass media events, various TV shows now having and publicising their own tag. This resource is often lost in time, only tiny snippets being captured in blog posts or summaries using tools like Storify, which often loose the richness of individual conversations between participants.

It doesn’t have to be this way. Using a combination of Google Spreadsheets as a data source and a simple web interface to add interactivity it’s possible to let users explorer your entire event hashtag and replay any of conversations.

Anthony Beal's insight:

Tried this from @mhawksey: create Twitter archive & interactive visualization of conversation . awesome! #altc2013

Twitter Archiving Google Spreadsheet TAGS v5

Twitter Archiving Google Spreadsheet TAGS v5 | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

For a couple of years now to support my research in Twitter community analysis/visualisation I’ve been developing my Twitter Archiving Google Spreadsheet (TAGS). To allow other to explore the possibilities of data generated by Twitter I’ve released copies of this template to the community.

 

Anthony Beal's insight:

The old Twitter API is being turned off this March - you will need to update to this version to carry on archiving # tags

 

There are also some new features in this version that look pretty good
