Tweeting for Active Reading
Post date: Sep 4, 2014 6:22:29 PM
Is blogging still considered blogging if an entire year lapses between one post and the next? I suppose it's been a busy year of writing and teaching so perhaps some excuse can be made.
I submit to you as evidence the following video, based on a presentation I did for the Chicago Center for Teaching about having students use Twitter to actively engage with course readings: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vf5K5Z2GM-4. It's safe to say that it was a successful experience for all in my Business of Entertainment class, and I'm excited to try it out in other courses in the future. I'm also curious to find out how Twitter works for other educators and class formats. Drop me a line if you have ideas or comments!
For your convenience, here are JPEGs of my presentation slides:
