The Ultimate Twitter List Curation Tool: TwitChimp

The Ultimate Twitter List Curation Tool: TwitChimp | Let's Learn IT: New Media & Web 2.0 | Scoop.it

TwitChimp.com is a web application that leverages the Twitter API to provide curated lists of Twitter users. The application is still in a beta testing period but is open to any who would like to try it in this early stage of development.

 

The purpose of TwitChimp.com is to enable any Twitter user to create and curate directories of Twitter users. 

Curated lists are important because they can help reduce the signal to noise ratio in Twitter.

 

Here are some features:

- An ability to easily create and curate feature-filled lists of twitter accounts on any topic you desire.
- Summation of top concepts/words and hashtags in tweets for an entire list, and a hotlinking of those words to Twitter searches.
- Generation of statistics for lists and users in lists.
- An ability to discover lists by category.
- Search tools enabling lists to be found by keywords in the list or by bios of users.
- User profile pages with stats, bios and links.
- An ability to embed lists on any site on the Internet..."

I like this, but I wish there was the ability to collaborate on keeping curated lists up to date.

played around with this - and it is useful to get input from people about who to follow - plus I like the analysis

We love this document that Mark Anderson has produced for a training day at his school in North Somerset, UK. It succinctly provides the name of Web2.0 tools and gives you examples of how to use them...

 

From our experience teachers did need quick, easy and fast ways to connect to new technology ideas. We think Mark achieves this very well!

Using the Facebook group as a learning management system

Using the Facebook group as a learning management system | Let's Learn IT: New Media & Web 2.0 | Scoop.it

The Facebook group has the potential to be used as an LMS. It has pedagogical, social and technological affordances, which allow putting up announcements, sharing ideas and resources, and implementing online discussions. Using the Facebook group as an LMS, however, has certain constraints. It does not support other format files to be uploaded directly, and the discussion is not organized in a meaningful structure.

The role of Twitter in Personal Learning Networks

The role of Twitter in Personal Learning Networks | Let's Learn IT: New Media & Web 2.0 | Scoop.it

This qualitative phenomenological study involving in-depth interviews with seven educators in K-12 and higher education examines the role that the microblogging service Twitter plays in the formation and development of Personal Learning Networks (PLN) among educators. A double hermeneutic data analysis shows that Twitter plays a role in the formation and development of PLNs by allowing educators to; engage in consistent and sustained dialogue with their PLN, access the collective knowledge of their PLN, amplify and promote more complex thoughts and ideas to a large audience, and expand their PLN using features unique to Twitter. This research also examines the nature of a PLN and shows that participants believe their PLN extends beyond their Twitter network to encompass both face-to-face and other ICT mediated relationships. Secondary research questions examine how Twitter differs from other social networking tools in mediating relationships within a PLN, what motivates an educator to develop a PLN, how trust is established in a PLN, what the expectations of reciprocity are within a PLN, and what is the nature of informal learning within a PLN.
