The Twitter Chat Conundrum (Part One)

Learning Rebels

My name is Shannon and I used to be a twitter chat addict. Seriously, it was nothing to participate on some level in no less than three twitter chats a week. However, there is something happening with the state of twitter chats that is making me less engaged than in years past, and has put me in a bit of a conundrum. In this two-part post, I am going to tackle the biggest issues I feel are affecting twitter chats today. Twitter chats used to make me think.

The Twitter Chat Conundrum (Part Two)

Learning Rebels

Last week our conversation centered around the twitter chat. How twitter chats, in general, may be improved and I have to say the response was great. If CSI can do it, surely we can make it happen in twitter chats? A modern day intellectual salon is how I always viewed twitter chats. However, perhaps now, the twitter chat has become the new silo. “Lurking” (the twitter name for observing a chat without participating) is a good start.

Using Twitter For Social Learning

LearnDash

While there are many tools available today that are conducive to social learning, usually the first ones that come to people’s minds are Facebook and Twitter given their mainstream influence in social media. But can Twitter really be used for social learning? There are a variety of ways that Twitter can be used in an educational setting. If you field questions via Twitter, you can determine what subject areas may need more attention within the classroom.

Business applications of Twitter

E-Learning Provocateur

Earlier this week, I attended a Twitter Camp billed Twitter is not for dummies. I had the privilege of facilitating one of the breakout sessions, which focused on the business applications of Twitter. Suddenly Twitter comes into its own as an alternative communications medium.

Unearthing Diamonds in Twitter

Dashe & Thomson

First, I have to confess that I am not a Twitter pro. It was only about six months ago that I set up a “business” Twitter account, and I have only a few tweets and followers to my name. My monthly Twitter stats are embarrasing, at best. I’ve had several conversations with colleagues about Twitter that end in “I just don’t get it.” Partly because I haven’t given up (I skim my Twitter feed almost daily).

Learning by coincidence on Twitter

(cartoon via Rob Speekenbrink ) I get involved in lots of discussions whether Twitter - is learning (or nonsense). Often I answer that you definitely learn through twittering because you can link through to blogposts, articles etc. Back to Twitter. learning twitter

I looked up ANZ Bank on Twitter, but I couldn’t find it. So I googled “ANZ Twitter&# and stumbled upon Did ANZ open a new branch and forget to staff it? The article states: Last year ANZ established a dedicated Twitter account called @ANZ_Responds to communicate with customers. I did, however, find @anzmoneymanager on Twitter.

First Impressions of Twitter

Experiencing eLearning

I finally signed up for Twitter last week after resisting for quite a while. Over the last 6 months or so, I’ve been seeing more examples of personal learning with Twitter though. Two weeks into it, I’m still not sure I totally “get&# Twitter, which is probably OK. I guess I see the value in that connection and discussion, but I’m not sure that Twitter really does so much more to facilitatate those conversations than older tools.
