Twitter and Other Mobile-izing Tools in Teaching & Learning
Posted Aug 24 2008 3:21pm
Yesterday, I had the opportunity to present a session entitled “ Twitter and Other Mobile-izing Tools in Teaching & Learning ” at the Maricopa District’s Teaching and Learning with Technology Conference . I discussed a few quick examples on how mobile technology might be integrated with students in and out of the classroom setting. I was mostly excited to share my findings from a pilot study I did this semester where I implemented Twitter in my health classes.
Below you can find the session description and the slides from my presentation (which are also available to download at Slideshare ).
If there’s one piece of technology available in the hands of most students, it’s a cell phone. Text-messaging is an effective way for people communicate within their social networks. This session will demonstrate how we can use tools like Twitter and other mobile-based technology to connect with our students and establish a community outside of the classroom, as well as, convey information beyond emails.
