Imagine Twitter in Your Online Class!

You may have already seen this nugget circulating online or if you follow Henry Griffy (@Griffy2osu) on Twitter.  For those who haven’t seen it, I thought it was a great place to start thinking about how Twitter can be used creatively in an online class (or a face to face class as well).  “50 Ways to Use Twitter in the Classroom” provides just that.  Although developed with the k-12 classroom in mind, there is no reason these ideas couldn’t also be used in a college class.  In fact, there is also a list of “50 Ways to Use Twitter in the College Classroom”!  As you look over the now 100 ways to use Twitter, consider how other social media outlets could also be used such as Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and LinkedIn.   Another quick tip for Twitter in a Carmen course: You can create a widget on the course homepage that shows the class Twitter feed if you have one set up!  Cool, huh?
