Digital Spaces Workshop
Roger Kerry talks about his use of twitter in teaching at the Using Space and Technology to Enhance Learning event 2nd May 2014.
This session explored the nature of social media in modern learning models, and considered how virtual space should be seen as a valid environment in which deep learning can occur, creating group collaboration in the digital space when the physical space provides a limitation. Specifically, the workshop focused on the micro-blogging site Twitter and linked workshop content to some of the findings from a recent University of Nottingham “Twitter in Education” project. Discussion on social media was encouraged, particularly around how the digital world can relate to the “real-world” and how educators might consider the progressive integration of the two. Real-time “Twitter-learning” activity formed part of the workshop.
