Twittering Dante : New Models for Student Writing in the Digital Age - 0 views

  •  
    Cracking Dante's Inferno is a tough row to hoe for any high school student-but what if the reading assignment was conducted via Twitter? The exercise "Twitter in Hell" was handed to some lucky seniors at University Laboratory High School at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, after reading the classic tome. Their mission? To write 140-character tweets describing each level in hell as if they were Dante writing to his beloved Beatrice.

  • If you fail to connect to the network of learners, you miss out on a global conversation about what you are passionate about. And missing out is a darn shame because it can save you time, energy, and increase your reach, no matter how brilliant (or not) you are. That’s a powerful idea. Smart people get smarter because they have access to the network of learners. People who are just starting out are able to learn as fast as they can to accomplish what they need to do. When I meet folks who are just becoming aware of the global conversation — usually because I push them over the edge in a workshop — I like to share several tools with them.

  •  
    Suzie Boss writes a comprehensive overview of the growing use of twitter in education. I find it so interesting that many of the complaints about twitter are also the initial complaints I heard about blogging. This is a very nice overview of twitter for those who are wondering "what is the fuss?"

    I have kicked off the first "Plurknovela" a collective digital story told by Plurkers around the world. Wanna join in the fun? Great for language students creating microblogged fiction on the fly!

    Plurk is a great digital storytelling tool for students developing higher order thinking skills, creativity, collaboration, etc. Easy, fast, and fun. Perfect for second and foreign language students and developing writing and reading skills.

    Plurk novellas are emerging -- this is very cool. This could be used in writing. You can see how threaded microblogging is DIFFERENT from twitter. I think there is room for both.

    How about cutting and pasting the most meaningful mini-exchanges? Or simply get a screen-shot of them (whatever is faster for you) and create a page here for those who can/want to discuss together. Or perhaps people want to use it as inspiration to write reflections in their own blogs when time permits. Please point us to those links!
