How Twitter in the Classroom is Boosting Student Engagement by Greg Ferenstein

Greg Ferenstein nos explica como en cursos universitarios donde tienen sobre 100 estudiantes en un auditorio, utilizan Twitter como una herramienta para promover las discusiones y el tema del curso. Reconocen los Profesores Universitarios que la participación de estudiantes aumenta de 3 estudiantes a 30. Los invito a leer y reflexionar....cuando utilizaremos twitter en el salón.....

"Professors who wish to engage students during large lectures face an uphill battle. Not only is it a logistical impossibility for 200+ students to actively participate in a 90 minute lecture, but the downward sloping cone-shape of a lecture hall induces a one-to-many conversation. This problem is compounded by the recent budget cuts that have squeezed ever more students into each room.

Fortunately, educators (including myself) have found that Twitter is an effective way to broaden participation in lecture. Additionally, the ubiquity of laptops and smartphones have made the integration of Twitter a virtually bureaucracy-free endeavor. This post describes the two main benefits professors find when using Twitter in lecture"
