I finally buckled under the pressure to join Twitter! I am taking a class at Clayton State on innovative methods for online teaching and I attended a workshop yesterday on social media in the classroom. During the workshop they presented a number of different methods for communicating with students on social media to stimulate learning outside of the classroom. This combined with the fact that Ambassador Coppedge from the Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons at the U.S. Department of State tweeted a thank you to me for moderating a panel a few weeks ago which I wrote about in a previous blog post compelled me to join. At first I was skeptical about Twitter's ability to engage student learning but I will try it out with my online class this summer and see how it goes! Wish me luck!
