• 將Twitter應用在課堂上

    在RWW看到一篇有趣的文章,講一位美國德州達拉斯大學的歷史老師,Monica Rankin怎麼將Twitter應用在他的教學上



    在Monica Rankin所寫的教學經驗裡,可以看到他的出發點與作法其實是很簡單的:
    • First, I set up a twitter account for the class called ushistoryII. 
    • I posted instructions on my website for those who needed them and Kim Smith made an introductory “how-to” video that I also posted on my website. 
    • I set up the ushistoryII account to follow all of the students and we were reading to start having “discussions.”
    • I gave the students special hash tags to use on all of their comments. The hash tags were organized by week so that all of the comments posted in a given week would appear together. This also allowed students to search by the hash tag for a given week and pull up all comments to use as a study aid before exams. 
    • I used tweetdeck as a central hub to track our weekly discussions. Tweetdeck allowed me to search for that week’s hash tag and it created a special column dedicated to comments using that hash tag. Tweetdeck is also designed to refresh automatically at regular intervals (about every 12 seconds I believe). 
    • I would run a search for that week's hash tag, pull up the tweetdeck column, and a running stream of comments would appear. 
    • I loaded tweetdeck on the classroom computer and projected it onto the large screen at the front of the room so students could watch the stream of comments.

    Rankin有提到他的學生都不知道twitter,跟這個調查結果挺相符。
