Twitter! What a great community we’ve created!

Twitter! What a great community we’ve created!

I am thinking about our Tweetorial and of how this EDC class has used Twitter, #mscedc, to it’s utmost. I find it comforting to know that when I wake up and check Twitter, I’m always sure to find a tweet, or twelve, from my classmates. Our use of Twitter has created a wonderful and supportive community and, in my view, relates back to our Community Cultures in Block 2. I’ve also gained more Twitter followers since the Tweetorial… #awesome!

Here’s a quick video I made:

While researching for the use of Twitter in education, I came across the following interesting links:

and a search of articles in SAGE journals

I was so grateful to be able to have the time to participate in today’s EDC Hangouts tutorial. It was great to engage in discussion with Jeremy, James and my classmates – and despite having the flu, I’m thankful to have the time off of work to join the video call!

Week 9 Summary

Week 9 Summary

Week 9 Summary: Mar. 13-19

Week 9 in EDC was exciting because of our Tweetorial exercise: an intensive two-day Tweet-a-thon on Mar. 16-17. I’ve collected all my Tweetorial tweets into one place HERE, where I discussed the Siemens article, and all my week 9 posts HERE. I also enjoyed investigating a tweet link from Clare from Siemens, Sharkey and Blackall on how to measure success. I made an extra effort this week during our two-day Tweetorial to be ‘on’ Twitter as much as I could. It did, however, become somewhat challenging because of the five hour time difference between Canada and Edinburgh (I would wake up in the morning to find a plethora of #mscedc tweets). 

Although I find the topic of learning analytics (LA) somewhat dry and uninteresting, I’ve learned over this week, that LA can provide valuable information for education. I enjoyed the video lecture from Ben Williamson and  in this post, I discuss the importance of meaning and the idea of students as ‘customers’ in higher education, sparked from a Twitter comment by Chenee about the ‘marketisation of education’. I related some of these themes back to the marketing course I taught at Durham College. I also now know what Tesco is, ha!

I also discussed how students are ‘co-producers’ of their education; I feel especially luck to be a student at U of Edinburgh and credit the institution and faculty for fostering co-production and co-creation between students and teachers. The innovative and progressive DE programme here at UofE allows me freedom of choice in my projects and educational exploration.

@ClareThomsonQUB as would I! What’s the accuracy rate? I’m interested in the ‘attention/focus heat maps’ #mscedc 👍
