On the 13th November at 3pm UK time I’ll be presenting at the LSE NetworkED Seminar Series. The session should be streamed live so you can tune in (Update: a recording is currently available here) . I’ll be talking about ‘Twitter in Education’.
No slides yet but I’ll post them here when I’ve done them. My plan is to have an anthological look at some of my previous/current work with Twitter which follows a natural passive/monologic and active/dialogic trajectory. For more information and the stream visit the NetworkED site (short summary below)
Since the launch of the micro-blogging service Twitter in 2006 a number of academics have experimented with it’s use within education. Examples range from the passive/monologic course announcements to the active/dialogic directed discussion. This workshop will explore some educational ‘Twitter hacks’ which cover a wide range of activities from a free SMS broadcast system, Twitter for classroom voting and the application of social network analysis to for mining Twitter for actionable insights. As part of this participants will be shown a range of free and open source tools to assist in Twitter data collection and analysis including the Twitter Archiving Google Spreadsheet (TAGS) and NodeXL.
