Science of Education

Further to what I posted last week about the idea of using twitter as a means of social learning; that is recording notes, seeing other peoples’ perspectives and creating discussion, my project supervisor introduced me to Storfiy.com, which can take all the tweets of a given hash tag and put them into chronoligical order. I tried it in said supervisors science of education lecture, and this was the output.
  1. @jm60 Tweeting Jesse Martins one and only education lecture under #jm60
  2. It’s fun for me, since you guys get to do all the work. #jm60
  3. Anybody who is satisfied with their teaching has low expectations #jm60
