Twitter en educación... ¿Para qué? ¿Cómo?

Twitter en educación... ¿Para qué? ¿Cómo? | Educational Use of Social Media | Scoop.it
Twitter puede ser de gran ayuda al docente en muchas maneras. Es fácil encontrar ideas que nos ayuden a empezar a utilizarlo en clase; después de echar un vistazo aquí y allá, se nos ocurren algunas ideas para despertar inquietudes.

Por un lado, recordemos que los 140 caracteres presuponen capacidad de seleccionar y sintetizar lo que verdaderamente es interesante. Crear un hashtag supone elegir un tema y crear una pequeña comunidad que está interesada en ese tema, posiblemente con ideas interesantes que aportar, además tiene la ventaja de que no es una conversación como tal, por lo que puedes hacer una aportación y ver la reacción de tu “grupo”, con ideas que lo mejoren, retweets o likes, lo que supone que puedes estar contribuyendo con cosas interesantes y que ayudan. No pasa nada si alguien te corrige, te lleva la contraria o no piensa como tu, porque eso también enseña. Lo ideal es buscar gente interesante de verdad a quien seguir y que de verdad sea enriquecedor.

5 Ways for Teachers to get Started on Twitter - Daily Genius | Educational Use of Social Media | Scoop.it
Social Media and education have a complicated relationship. Most educators come into contact with it for the first time through a negative experience – a disciplinary action involving students or even peers.

Any way we can bring in technology into the classroom to improve learning can only be a good thing. Take for instance Twitter and YouTube. Valueable lessons and strategies can be found using these sites which can only be beneficial for our students, if used wisely I must add. 

Jacinta Ferlazzo's curator insight, May 29, 10:09 PM

I especially like the idea of tweeting as a character from history! Not only is it enjoyable, but it encourages the students to quite literally put themselves in their shoes and evaluate their decisions, trials and tribulations on a much more personal level.
