Twitter in the Classroom

I love this blog post and video of UT Dallas History Professor Dr. Monica Rankin’s use of Twitter in the classroom. I especially like all the comments from students indicating that it provides a way for more students to participate in the discussion. Two of the big factors in getting students to participate in a class discussion are 1) not enough time in a big class to get to everyone; 2) some kids don’t feel comfortable talking in class. Twitter seems to have been a pretty good tool for dealing with those 2 issues.

Rankin introduces the idea to her class in the video below, and talks about how it went here.
