Check out #literallyliteracy to see my graduate students’ live-tweets from our most recent class. While very few of them actually chose to post their thoughts during class on Twitter, those who did try it said that they liked being able to see what other people were thinking because you can tweet much more than you can actually say in a class discussion with twenty people. Next time around I will give my students advance notice about this opportunity so that they can sign up on Twitter and familiarize themselves with it if necessary. I was surprised to hear from several of them that they never use Twitter. I think that developing some background knowledge about the platform and some questions about how it can be used as a Writing to Learn activity would have resulted in more participation.
