Where Do You Learn? Tweeting to Inform Learning Space Development

Wednesday, January 21 | 2:30PM–4:30PM | Curacao 5-8
Session Type: Professional Development
Over a two-week period in 2008 we invited 15 students to tweet about their learning spaces. Asking them "Where do you learn?" we uncovered some informal real-time, contextualized data about the spaces they use outside class, their learning activities, and the resources that support them. This session will review the potential of Twitter and other popular Web 2.0 applications for engaging students and informing institutional decision making. We will discuss data generation and analysis, and how our findings are being fed into social learning space planning.
