Twitter Postings: Iterative Design (Jakob Nielsen's Alertbox) - 0 views

  •  
    Twitter for Business, Text as UI: "A few days ago, I posted the announcement of our next usability conferences to Nielsen Norman Group's timeline on Twitter (@NNgroup). I don't have all the guidelines for stream-based postings yet, because we're still conducting usability studies (particularly of B2B users, like my audience). But, based on the user sessions I've observed already, I put this posting through 5 rounds of iterative design."

    Iran's Twitter Revolution

    Forget CNN or any of the major American "news" networks. If you want to get the latest on the opposition protests in Iran, you should be reading blogs, watching YouTube or following Twitter updates from Tehran,

    I do not use a textbook. It is not that I dislike textbooks. It is that my textbook is the web. My textbook is YOU and ME and NOW.

    Instead of a book, I add all relevant readings, videos or examples to my course delicious bookmarks.

    That's my virtual, live, textbook - licensed under Creative Commons. And students don't have to blow 60 bucks on it either. And they can subscribe to this textbook using their favourite feed reader. And unlike textbooks, social bookmarking tools enable and activate inquiry, curiosity and ownership of knowledge acquisition.

    Right now v. back then

    As I explained to my class, the most important stuff to know about the web is what's happening RIGHT NOW. I may share a video or article in a couple of weeks that has yet to be written. Course readings are not mandatory - because I share most of the stuff in-class but secondary. If students are confused or if they want to dig deeper, they've got Youtube tutorials, how to's and hundreds of articles and research supporting everything I'm talking about in the course.

Wired Campus: Professor Encourages Students to Pass Notes During Class -- via... - 0 views

    Professor Encourages Students to Pass Notes During Class -- via Twitter and in the comments from one student...I am one of Cole's "experimental lab rats," and I must say that Cole and his colleague changed the way that I view teaching and learning. That course disrupted my notions of participation, identity, and community, and the changes are for the better. The course was so intellectually stimulating that when the course ended, I experienced a tremendous loss. The loss was so great that I felt myself trying to create Twitter communities in my future classes because I missed that engagement. If you are curious about our course, visit my course blog. https://blogs.psu.edu/mt4/mt-search.cgi?blog_id=655&tag=CI597C&limit=20 From there, you can access other students' blogs and see some of the other conversations that ensued.

    "Pupils to study Twitter and blogs in primary schools shake-up

    * New curriculum will give teachers more freedom
    * Second world war and Victoria not compulsory"

    Interesting article about the new proposed curriculum for primary school students in the UK. Also has a lot of embedded discussion for the diigo crowd.

Why You Should Be on Twitter | Media and Technology | AlterNet - 0 views

  •  
    As others have pointed out, articles that complain about Twitter typically focus on the content of individual tweets rather than focusing on those tweets in a specific context. It would be similar to denigrating conversation by pulling out individual pieces of dialogue rather than seeing how conversation involves a variety of practices: connecting with others, sharing ideas, linking to blog posts, participating in mini-memes, or whatever.

Is the Enterprise Ready for Microblogging Tools Like Twitter? - 0 views

  •  
    Although experts in the social media space have been talking about how businesses might adopt microblogging tools like Twitter and Plurk, only recently have we started to see a series of new vendors cropping up in the enterprise microblogging space. This has been due in part to businesses needing to figure out how Twitter can benefit the enterprise.
