Pedagogical Suggestions for Using Twitter in Higher Education
This qualitative case study examined twitter use with undergraduate and graduate students in both online and face-to-face class settings. Through the analysis of tweets and student reports, the researchers found students enjoyed being consumers of tweets but seldom retweeted or replied. We suggest that most students are new to twitter, therefore scaffolding and modeling are necessary to encourage participation. The session will offer participants an opportunity to explore twitter and interact during the talk.
