The Twitter Experiment

Dr. Rankin, professor of History at the University of Texas at Dallas, wanted to know how to reach more students and involve more people in class discussions both in and out of the classroom. She had heard of Twitter… She collaborated with the UT Dallas, Arts and Technology – Emerging Media and Communications (EMAC) faculty and as a Graduate student in EMAC I assisted her in her experiment.

Kim Smith, UT Dallas Graduate Student pursuing a Masters in Emerging Media and Communication, documented the experiment for a digital video class.

Watch this video and consider using Twitter in your classroom.
