Watching Bentley Professor Mark Frydenberg demo what his Web 2.0 students have been doing with Popfly was a highlight of Tech Tuesday for me this evening. As we chatted later, he told me he’d assigned a Twitter project, but wanted more assignment ideas.
This Twitter experiment and blog post are *my* answer. In the comments, what is YOURS?
I asked Twitter…
Discussing with @checkmark what assignments he could give his students to help them “GET” Twitter. What do you think?
steketee i would say it is web based IM with controls and ease of finding like-minded people. (twitter)
jpblogger Using the CA fire scenario as an example … how could twitter connect people in a crisis?
Rick Wolff There’s no “getting” Twitter. You just get on and ignore the feelings of foolishness, and suddenly one day, it makes sense.
Dean Terry we use twitter in our Emerging Media program. Have students do a class where they only communicate or write stories via twitter
email@example.com : I’ve been using it a year and I don’t think _I_ even “get” Twitter.
