Paper Tweets Build SEL Skills | Edutopia - 4 views

    "Creating a Twitter board is simple. Make a template with space for a profile picture, the student's real name, a Twitter-style handle, a short bio, and a list of followers. That takes about a quarter of a page, leaving room for tweets. Have students fill out profiles-some of mine drew a profile picture, but most used a photo-and slip the profiles into clear sheet protectors. When we do this exercise, I display the profiles on a whiteboard for a few days, using magnets to hold them in place. When we're done, I store the profiles in a folder-they don't take up much space and are ready for next time. Cut some paper into small slips that students can use for tweets, which they can tape onto the appropriate profile."

Creative Lessons with Fake Texts, Tweets, Facebook Pages - 2 views

    "What if Lewis and Clark had cell phones? What would JFK have posted on Facebook? What would Abe Lincoln have Tweeted? While it's fun to think about what how modern technology would have affected the past, it's also a creative way for students to demonstrate an understanding of historical figures, politicians, authors, or even plants and animals. Students love social media, and virtual impersonation tools provide an opportunity to bring some fun into assignments. All of the tools below are free, and can be used without creating an account."

Free Technology for Teachers: How to Cite a Tweet in MLA, APA, and Chicago Style - 1 views

  •  
    "As social media has evolved it has crept into academic work. I've even given research assignments in which I've asked my students to seek out and cite quotes from people on Twitter. More and more I'm asked, "how do I cite a Tweet?" In fact, I was asked this in an email last night. If you're citing for a blog post, you can just embed the Tweet. If you're citing for a more formal work you will want to follow guidelines of MLA, APA, or Chicago Style."

4 Free and Easy Ways to Display a Live Tweet Wall | OEDB.org - 3 views

    "Ellyssa Kroski - June 24, 2014 In February I organized a pecha kucha style panel discussing topics related to law librarianship in the digital age and I ran a live competition looking for who could tweet the most about the panel. The prize was a copy of the book Law Librarianship in the Digital Age which was appropriate as the panel of speakers was made up of many of the contributing authors. It turned out to be a great way to get people excited and engaged with the speakers and it worked really well, resulting in many people tweeting about our discussion. Therefore, I wanted a way to display the live tweets as they were coming in to keep everyone excited about the contest. But I had a very hard time finding a good, free application which would enable me to project the display I wanted. Since then I've found four tools that will easily allow you to display a live tweet wall as the tweets come in, whether it's for an event you're hosting, for your library's flat screen TV display, or simply for following a topic."

How to Cite Tweets in an Academic Paper | EdTech Magazine - 7 views

    "Professors may scoff at the idea, but students are increasingly citing tweets in academic papers. Although they don't exactly count as peer-reviewed, tweets do provide interesting insight into pop culture, breaking news and a number of social issues. After all, the Library of Congress is indexing tweets for historical reference. As a result, it's important that style guides address the issue, and that students understand how to properly cite their sources."
