Can Social Media Be Used As a Teaching Tool?
A Conversation With Pierre Lévy on Twitter
* * *
Friday, February 15, 2019
12 p.m. – 1 p.m., B-4 Dwinelle Hall
In Spring 2018, Ana Elisa S. C. S. Ferreira coordinated a project called #askplevy at Instituto Federal Campus Cubatão (Brazil). During 3 months, professors, students and staff used Twitter to post questions about education and technology to professor and author Pierre Lévy. The project raised an interesting reflection on how to use Social Media in the classroom as a teaching tool. This talk will include a discussion of selected tweets that were analyzed by the research group ELIN – Grupo de Pesquisa em Estudos Linguístico and presented at a roundtable in May 2018.
In order to make the talk more interactive, we would like to invite the participants to bring their smartphones and download the app kahoot* (https://kahoot.com)
